Title Italian winemaking town sets example for EU rural revival Media name/outlet Horizon Magazine Media type Web Country/Territory Netherlands Date 17/09/23 Description Another team of researchers, who also received funding from the EU, focused on drawing young people to rural regions in Europe to live and work. The four-year project, called RURALIZATION, ended in April 2023.
‘It’s the lack of opportunity that makes rural areas decline,’ said Willem Korthals Altes. ‘Young people like to live there, but they don’t find ways to make a living.’
Korthals Altes was coordinator of the project and is a professor in land development at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
