The European Landowners Organization – ELO asbl, created in 1972, is a unique federation of national associations from the EU28, which represents the interests of the landowners, land and forest managers and rural entrepreneurs at the European political level. The ELO’s statutory commitment is to defend and promote sustainable development, conservation and protection of the environment, renewable energies and responsible use of natural resources. To further its positions the ELO has developed a communication strategy including elaboration and coordination of action programmes, involvement in the EU and international events, think-tank management, publication of position papers and studies, etc. The efficiency of the organization relies on its ability to gather together rural actors, land and forest managers, scientists, businesses and political decision makers at local, regional, national and European levels. Its network of more than 64 organizations throughout Europe represents several millions of land and forest managers and provides the ability to voice positions shared by a huge number of stakeholders from all over the EU and the candidate countries, as well as to analyze the local effects of the implementation of the EU legislation. The ELO has unrivalled experience in Natura 2000 network implementation, CAP, soil, water, forestry issues and countryside management. The ELO has been advising its members, farmers and land managers, on Natura 2000 implementation and had gained experience in this area. ELO is regularly invited to EC working groups and debates, and organizes high level conferences focusing on Natura 2000, environmental services, CAP, estates/countryside management at EU and national level. The ELO has been co-organizing for 9 years the Forum for the Future of Agriculture www.forumforagriculture.com, which is a unique event advancing discussions on food, environmental and energy security, attended by more than 1500 people and international press. The ELO is developing the Wildlife Estates programme and Pollinator Network initiative in EU in collaboration with academics, ministries and stakeholders.
