Thinking about rural areas

"Thinking about Rural Areas" - this was the topic of a regional seminar organised by the German SEMPRE partners in Rendsburg. Around 30 particpants representing social service providers, public authorities, universities and sectoral agencies took part in the lively discussions about challeneges and opportuntities for rural areas. One key outcome: While differences between urban and rural areas may be diminishing in many regards, living in a rural area still poses extraordinary challenges to disadvantaged groups such as migrants, single parents or older adults.

We are happy to present the slides which were shown by guest speaker Mr Bernd Wolfgang Hawel, urban planner and speaker of the working group on rural areas in the Association for Urban and Regional Planning (SRL).
