This is the video presentation of RURALIZATION. RURALIZATION is a H2020 project aiming at investigating the causes of demographic decline in EU rural areas and identifying and implementing innovative practices to generate stimulating opportunities for economic and social sustainability in rural contexts.
Domenico, Miriam and Giovanna run since 2014 the cooperative 'Nido di Seta' in the Italian region of Calabria. Their rural dream was to regain the ancient tradition of the region: silkworm breeding.
This is the recording of the webinar organised on September 15, 2020. This first webinar addressed the impact of COVID-19 mainly in EU rural contexts and counted with the participation of EC representatives, EU networks like Rural Youth Europe and the European Youth Forum and other H2020 projects such as RURITAGE and NEWBIE. At the same time we had the opportunity to hear directly from young people how COVID-19 impacted them and how they adapt and transform their businesses and life to cope with this global health crisis.
