One of the main travel opportunities with Macra na Feirme is the European Rally. The rally is organised by Rural Youth Europe and is a multilateral youth exchange where teams of five young people from each member organisation come together for a week-long programme of activities, workshops and seminars to build leadership, teamwork, education and intercultural experience.

This year’s European Rally took place in Ratnieki, Latvia from 6 to 13 August where approximately 100 people from all over Europe gathered to share experiences, cultural diversity and to discuss the common challenges for the development of rural areas throughout the continent.
