Parliamentary evening on sustainable rural areas
17 October 2018 - IAMO Director Alfons Balmann will be a podium guest at the Leibniz Association's Parliamentary Evening on “Sustainable rural areas” on 17 October 2018 in Berlin, Germany.
Rural areas fulfil central functions for humanity, such as food production, regeneration and nature. Still the numbers of young people whom are moving to the cities are constantly increasing, leaving entire regions emptied. The migration often leads to problems in health care, a lack of educational opportunities, the withdrawal of small and medium-sized enterprises, the loss of jobs and even poverty. At the Parliamentary Evening, scientists from various Leibniz institutes and members of the German Bundestag will discuss which offers, measures and instruments can help to stop the migration from rural areas and make the regions more attractive again.
