National LEADER Conference, 15 November 2021
The National Rural Network (NRN) is delighted to host the 2021 LEADER Conference on the 15th of November 2021.
This free online event entitled 30 Years of LEADER – Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future will allow us to reflect on past and current programmes, while also debating rural policy and practice via the next LEADER Programme.
We are particularly pleased to welcome Professor Mark Shucksmith, OBE, Newcastle University to deliver the keynote speech and to share his renowned experience of rural development and the LEADER Programme.
As we face continued challenges globally, it is essential to consider rural change, development and sustainability. The NRN LEADER Conference will provide this opportunity by examining the success of the LEADER programme over a 30 year period and by planning how such accomplishments can be replicated into the future.
This free conference is open to all stakeholders in the LEADER programme, including LAGs, IPs, rural enterprises, academics, community organisations and policymakers.
