Rural Parliament

Estonian Rural Parliament

Estonian Village Movement Kodukant has sponsored Rural Parliaments of Estonian Villages since 1996 to bring together village members, organizations, local and national representatives with the aim to discuss the issues and look for solutions to the problems facing rural development. Kodukant‘s Rural Parliament is unique due to the fact that the participants are brought together every two years to discuss the problems of the countryside and bring them to governmental decisions. Estonian Rural Parliament will provide also a good platform for discussion and exchange of ideas and best practice between international organizations connected with the rural development in different European countries.
