RURALIZATION - Photo Competition (1)

Young people in rural areas, and in particular young farmers, contribute to rural dynamism and pave the way for strengthening value chains and rural prosperity. Generational renewal is one of the preconditions for improving the competitiveness and sustainability of rural territories in Europe and is one of the biggest challenges to overcome for rural sustainability.

Supporting young people's rural dreams is important to reverse the decline in Europe's rural areas.

Help us spread the message!

Take part in our competition by submitting your best photos of young people in rural areas!

This photo competition is an opportunity to show how the new generations in Europe are making a living in the countryside to fulfil their dreams and bring life to rural areas. As the overall theme of the competition is generational renewal, participants are invited to submit images reflecting one or more of the following sub-themes:

 Farm succession (young people replacing their parents and families)

 Rural innovation and diversification (young people developing new products, services or simply new dynamics in rural areas).

 Access to land for new generations

 Young entrepreneurs

 New job opportunities

 New skills and resources that can stimulate economic activities in a variety of sectors (beyond agriculture).

Aspects contributing to the attractiveness of rural areas for young people

 Knowledge transfer between generations

 Life in rural communities
