PHOTO_EXHIBITION_1920x600

Can you imagine which photo was the most voted of the exhibition? This will be announced during the conference!

The RURALIZATION Photo exhibition is not over yet! In addition to the most voted photo by the RURALIZATION project consortium, and due to the numerous photos sent, we have decided to reward the second most voted photo by the public

Both the most voted photo by the RURALIZATION project consortium and the most voted photo by the public will be announced during the RURALIZATION Mid-term Conference on 8 and 9 November 2021. Do you want to participate? Keep reading!

Third stage: selection of the best picture according to the public opinion

In this final stage, the public opinion will decide the best photo out of the 20 best rated by the RURALIZATION partners, without considering among these the winning photo chosen by the consortium.

Thus, the public will vote through PollUnit (find link hereunder), deciding the second prize of this photo exhibition: 200 euros. These 20 best pictures will be available to be rated from 1 to 5 points until the beginning of November. Therefore, if the participants  really love a photo and it turns out that it is their favourite one, they can rate it with a maximum of 5 points. However, if they do not like it, they can rate it with a minimum of 1 point. 

 

ABOUT_1920x600

The RURALIZATION consortium is proud to invite you to our Mid-term Conference on November 8th and 9th 2021dedicated to the H2020 Ruralization project results and future projections. Within the course of an on-site and virtual meeting with experts and stakeholders, the debate will be developed across three discussion rooms: rural research, rural generations and policy-making for rural areas. We would like to invite you to participate in the discussion room of your preference, as well as to visit the virtual exposition where the best rural photos submitted to our Photo Exhibition will be displayed. 

We would like to invite you to participate in the discussion room of your preference. The rural research session will identify key questions and begin to map out ways forward for rural research and policy that can support realisation of ruralisation and its regenerative outcomes for rural areas. RURALIZATION is focused on assessing and developing novel instruments, strategies and policies for rural regeneration and generational renewal. Its particular focus is on rural foresight analysis, the future dreams of rural youth, facilitating rural newcomers, farm succession, new entrants into farming and access to farmland.

These ideas would be further developed during the rural generation’s session, providing examples in relation to some of these specific areas, but also concentrate on more overarching questions around how the ruralisation process can be supported.  It will also focus particularly on the central theme underpinning this conference, the question of bridging the EU level with local level practices.

The conference will count with the participation of  European Commission’s representatives who will present the long-term vision for the EU's rural areas. The final session of the conference will aim at deriving concrete policy conclusions from the project findings as well as communicating and discussing them with policy makers. Therefore, the RURALIZATION mid-term conference is the moment to resume the project findings about rural trends, access to land and rural generations.

Twitter_conference_banner_white_soft

The RURALIZATION Twitter Conference 2021 presentations will consist of up to five tweets (280 characters) on your twitter account related to topics that contribute to policy formulation and analysis in the rural context. Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with tweeted questions. Each presenter uses the hashtag #RuralizationConference2021 and the audience simply follow the hashtag to engage with presenters (you can use one or more discussion rooms hashtags too). The purpose of the Twitter conference is to enhance knowledge mobilization on rural policy research and developing novel instruments and strategies for rural regeneration and generational renewal. It will also focus particularly on the central theme underpinning this conference, the question of bridging the EU level with local level practices. 

Structure of the RURALIZATION Conference 2021

The RURALIATION conference will be focused on 3 discussion rooms: rural research, rural generations and policy-makingWe would like to invite you to participate in the virtual discussion room of your preference. Therefore, you will join any of them by tweeting information related to rural topics you are keen on, or you are researching about. You can also send direct questions to the conference speakers, so they can answer them during the RURALIZATION Conference on November 8th and 9th.

Discussion room 1: #RuralResearch

 

This discussion room will identify key questions and begin to map out ways forward for rural research and policy that can support realisation of ruralisation and its regenerative outcomes for rural areas. RURALIZATION is focused on assessing and developing novel instruments, strategies and policies for rural regeneration and generational renewal. Your Twitter thread presentation will provide examples in relation to some of these specific areas, but also concentrate on more overarching questions around how the ruralisation process can be supported. You may participate in the RURALIZATION Twitter Conference by answering the following questions on your Twitter publication:

 

-      What specific opportunities can support new generations (e.g. newcomers, young people, migrants, new entrants to farming) in rural areas?

-      What are the barriers rural research has identified inhibiting the realisation of these opportunities?

-      What are the research gaps we need to address to help realise these opportunities? 

 

Discussion room 2: #RuralGenerations

 

These ideas would be further developed during the rural generation’s session, with a particular focus is on rural foresight analysis, the future dreams of rural youth, facilitating rural newcomers, farm succession, new entrants into farming and access to farmland. If you do not know what your publication can be about, answer the following questions on your twitter thread:

-      How can we help to structure rural future and policy planning at local grassroots, national or EU level?

-      How can the ruralisation process be supported by youth in Europe?

-      How can we contribute to the question of bridging the EU level with local level practices?

-      How can we help facilitating access to land to rural newcomers, farm successors and new entrants into farming?

 

You may also tweet about the rural photos submitted during our RURALIZATION Photo Exhibitionthe voting process will be open until November 5th. 

Discussion room 3: #PolicyMaking

 

The conference will also count with the participation of  European Commission’s representatives who will present the long-term vision for the EU's rural areas. The final session of the conference will aim at deriving concrete policy conclusions from the project findings as well as communicating and discussing them with policy makers. Therefore, the RURALIZATION mid-term conference is the moment to resume the project findings about rural trends, access to land and rural generations. Some of the following questions will be raised during the panel discussion that will take place at the end of this session:

 

-      How can different policy levels support the process of RURALIATION?

-      How can we jointly elaborate effective strategies?

-      How do we valorize RURALIZATION results for practitioners?
