RURALIZATION is a Horizon2020 project based on the premise that rural regeneration is needed to generate opportunities for new generations of existing and potential rural inhabitants. Newcomers and new entrants in the farming are key players for bringing innovation into rural areas. RURALIZATION aims thus at understanding drivers and circumstances of rural regeneration and with an empirical focus develop, assess, and disseminate novel instruments, strategies and policies that cater for rural regeneration. This is done specifically in relation to the future dreams of rural youth, facilitating rural newcomers and new entrants into farming and by addressing the issue of access to land. RURALIZATION will also carry out a trend analysis to uncover relevant megatrends, trends and weak signals for rural regions. This knowledge base will culminate in generating effective policy tools.



COVID-19 has strongly impacted both urban and rural areas. For this reason, RURALIZATION will hold a webinar on the impact of COVID-19 to discuss in general about positive and negative effects of the pandemic and differences between urban and rural areas, with a special focus on young people.

The webinar will count also on resilience stories from young people from both areas and on the participation of RURALIZATION sister projects like RURITAGE or Newbie and of European youth associations such as Rural Youth Europe and the European Youth Forum.


Programme and registration

The webinar will take place on September 15th 2020. The draft programme is available on the events’ website.
