The conference was organised online in partnership with the French National Rural Network (NRN) and European Innovation Partnership (EIP Agri). Terre de Liens, RURALIZATION and the NRN all communicated on the event about 2-3 weeks in advance. These combined communication forces succeeded in attracting a mixed public of policymakers, state and advisory services, as well as grassroots initiatives and rural development NGOs.
