Here a short summary of what you will see…
In the EU, 75% of the population lives in urban areas, while 80% of the territory is categorised as rural.
Rural areas throughout Europe are often associated with remoteness, population decline, lack of education, infrastructure and services, and risk marginalisation and social exclusion.
Ruralink features six stories of rural youth from Germany, Spain and Greece beyond stereotypes and mainstream narrative. It provides a fresh look at rural Europe and shows dynamic young people, committed to reviving their local communities and regions.
