European Campaign for the Countryside
Aware that the countryside represents 80% of Europe and that one European in three is a country-dweller, so that the grave crisis in rural society today affects society as a whole.
Convinced that the countryside's human potential, solid economic values and ecological and cultural heritage form major assets for European society.
Having taken note of the report on the 1988 European Campaign for the Countryside - A new management approach for rural areas, presented by the Committee on the Environment, Regional Planning and Local Authorities was drawn up in the areas of Agriculture, Farmhouses, Plants (Flora), Roads and Trees.
The stamp (about agriculture) on this FDC is one of a set of three highlighting the importance of the European Campaign.
Thank you Merja.
