Rural Youth Europe is a European umbrella body for rural youth organisations. It was founded in 1957 and has 20 member organisations.

Rural Youth Europe aims to enhance the lives of rural young people through providing intercultural learning opportunities that promote advocacy and respect for others. Every year, the group organises three events that Macra na Feirme members would be familiar with, the spring and autumn seminars and also the European Rally, which the Irish delegation returned from recently following a fantastic week in Ratnieki, Latvia.
