Join us at the Rural Parliament from May 24th to 26th, 2024!

The Swedish Rural Parliament stands as one of the foremost gatherings for advancing rural development in Europe. Organized biennially since the mid-90s by Rural Sweden (Hela Sverige ska leva), the 2024 event revolves around the theme of ’Towards a Balanced Country – in a New Era.’

Together we will challenge and educate each other on issues of rural development and explore the question of how we create a balanced country. If you want to get involved, then this is the forum for you!

The first day of the Rural Parliament will focus on field trips showcasing the best examples of local development in Sörmland across ten themes: sustainable local development, food production, collaborative and social building and living, sustainable entrepreneurship, fiber extension, tourism, energy, young inclusion.

On the second and third day, we will convene at Arena Rosvalla in Nyköping. Experience inspiration through plenary sessions, exhibition, seminars. Overall you will have plenty of opportunities for meningful conversations. The food we serve will be local.

At the Rural Parliament enthusiasts mingle with politicians, officials, representatives from rural movements in other countries, entrepreneurs and scientists. It is a unique opportunity to connect with people from different sectors all working towards the same goal: that all Sweden shall live.

We want you to participate in this exciting event.
