How can we create thriving places for all?
Date: 13 December 2022
Venue: Online via Zoom
This event was aimed at bringing people together who were interested in creating / living / working in a rural setting, and holding discussions on ideas that can overcome challenges rural areas face. The idea was also to bring some of the findings and context of the RURALIZATION project into the event, and allow the room to explore ideas of "ruralization" themselves.
Participants engaged with discussion in breakout rooms, choosing to debate about Housing and Transport, and Agroecology. After 25 minutes of discussion within the rooms, the groups were brought back for a full discussion to detect what main ideas came up. The aim of this full group discussion was to listen to and capture the important issues to those in the room, and how they believe such issues could be overcome.
