The Friends of the Countryside
The Friends of the Countryside is a non-profit making organisation consisting of a network of like minded private landowners,
rural managers and entrepreneurs from 27 countries stretching from the Rockies to the Urals.
By means of innovative, regenerative and sustainable practices, this network promotes the long term interests of their land. Through the platform of the European Landowners’ Organisation, the FCS are able to ensure that their voice is heard throughout the European Union and beyond.
Upcoming General Assembly
24th Friends of the Countryside General Assembly in Córdoba, 2021
Given the current situation, we have taken the decision to postpone
the FCS 2020 as well as the post-tour. We deeply regret having to
make this choice, but this appears to be the only reasonable choice
given current events.
Should circumstances allow once more, we will then host the
General Assembly from Thursday June 3 until Sunday June 6, 2021
in Córdoba and host a pre-tour in Sevilla and Jerez de la
Frontera from Monday May 31 until Thursday June 3, 2021.
Our specially conceived website with information about the GA and
pre-tour remains open. Please click here or on the image
