European Landowners

Promoting a prosperous and attractive European countryside.

The ELO's national constituent organizations in the enlarged European Union and in the Candidate Countries represent millions of landowners throughout Europe. The ELO seeks to develop European solutions to the challenges which will face European decision-makers in the years to come, in particular now that the European Union has welcomed ten new Member States. At the same time the ELO, supported by its Secretariat in Brussels, is best placed to advise on draft European legislation which affects those who live and work in the countryside.
