put forward the idea of launching a European Year of Rural Europe, focusing on the cultural and creative value of rural areas;
focus on the cultural and creative sectors and industries (CCSIs) in terms of future planning and support, as the CCSIs bring together local rural culture and creativity;
call for a supporting and promoting framework for the European rural area of culture, using the experience from the European Capital of Culture initiative;
actively engage young people, develop forums and promote youth councils where they can share their ideas, and support youth initiatives in rural areas;
support the inclusion of youth and rural women in agriculture and farm ownership;
strengthen rural families through inclusive dialogue, support of relevant associations, and targeted policy, including family friendly policies to foster a robust and sustainable rural population;
launch a European initiative, similar to "smart villages", resulting in the focused support of rural CCSIs and the revitalisation of cultural heritage, while safeguarding support from EU funds by means of CLLD;
make cultural assets and services accessible to all, by reducing inequalities of opportunity between urban and rural, rich and poor, young and old, minority and marginalised groups and disabled people and immigrant and refugee communities;
strengthen awareness and empower LRAs to protect, rehabilitate, utilise and revitalise their environment, landscapes, tangible and intangible cultural assets and other unique cultural and arts resources;
explicit prioritisation of interventions designed to harness the potential of culture in rural areas;
launching of EU calls for proposals that, among other things, provide more support for projects promoting the social role of culture, experimentation, and innovation in contemporary visual arts, aimed at the regeneration of rural areas;
create synergies between sustainable tourism strategies and local and regional cultural and creative industries, so as to support economic growth and job creation and facilitate access to culture, whilst promoting sustainable development;
support the use of models of landscape conservation and governance to promote circular territorial ecosystems in historic rural landscapes, such as traditional land and soil management, traditional methods of irrigation, and through synergies between territorial players for the efficient use of water, energy, waste and materials, for example promoting waste-to-energy, organic fertilisers, and the recovery of heating from production processes.
