Section title: Remote work as a promising practice to attract newcomers to rural areas.
Highlights: The rural development pathway is not quite about rural-urban relations but connecting rural areas to areas outside of them. They could be urban areas, but also other rural areas. The ‘type of action’ is hard to classify. The Grow Remote organisation is the network/collective action aspect, but also ticked other as this is also an individual action where newcomers work remotely.
