ESPON Peer Learning Workshop European rural policy at a crossroads? Re-thinking needs, objectives and measures

Where? Online

When? April 21, 2022

This online workshop will tackle the problem of uneven development in rural areas in Europe, as it poses a persistent problem for territorial authorities. Shortages of economic opportunity and labour in these regions often place structural constraints on the provision of public infrastructure and access to services for a spatially dispersed and aging population.

Building off previous ESPON initiatives, the online workshop seeks to explore ways that ESPON can inspire better understanding of these trends and to develop more appropriate, evidence-based actions across rural communities.
