Kantri ry is a Finnish non-governmental association and a LAG (Local Action Group) developing the rural areas of Kangasala, Lempäälä, Nokia, Orivesi, Pirkkala, Tampere, Vesilahti and Ylöjärvi.

Kantri ry was founded in 1997 for rural development of Tampere Region. From the beginning it has distributed financial aid for the grassroot level actions in rural areas.

In overall, the area has more than 350 000 inhabitants, more than 100 000 of them live at the rural areas, where Kantri ry operates. The population has grown rapidly in past years and is likely to increase in the future as well. The population growth creates pressure on the rural areas. Infrastructure investments and rural planning are required as well as of new citizens combine to the old village far away from the city life. The aim is to prevent the country side turning into a rural suburb or reservoir for country living. On the other hand, periphery of Kantri´s area suffer from ageing population, negative  migration and deteriorating services.

  •    Environmentally responsible living
