General objectives of PURPLE:
- Promote successful socio-economic transition in peri-urban rural areas and their agricultural sector

- Develop a distinctive role as the primary interlocutor with Brussels-based institutions, and with politicians and stakeholders across the EU on issues of special relevance to Europe’s peri-urban regions
- Act as a platform for peri-urban regions to share knowledge and good practice, allowing connections and productive cross-fertilisation between existing projects, as well as promoting new trans-European initiatives in the field.
