National Rural Network LEADER Impact Campaign

The National Rural Network (NRN) has recently launched its LEADER Impact Campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to celebrate the impact of the LEADER Programme on rural communities across Ireland. By impact, we mean any positive change or result that has come about due to your LEADER project, in whatever form this may be e.g. a new community facility, an enhanced sense of community well-being or indeed a successful environmental project.

The National Rural Network are asking participants, who have received funding under the current LEADER Programme (2014-2020), to tell their story of how LEADER has impacted their community, enterprise, organisation or indeed local environment by creating their own short video. These videos will be a maximum of 2 minutes long and will be opened to a public vote to choose the winning projects. Something as simple as this example can be used to share your project impacts.

There will be one winner for each thematic category (3 winners in total) as per the themes in the current LEADER Programme, namely:

  • Theme 1: Economic Development, Enterprise & Development and Job Creation
  • Theme 2: Social Inclusion
  • Theme 3: Rural Environmen

Each winner will receive a One for All Gift Voucher to the value of €200 and will also have their project featured as a case study with the NRN, which will be promoted to local and national media and through the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD).
