3rd European Rural Geographies Conference
Rural Geographies in Transition
22-24 June 2021, Groningen, The Netherlands

Rural areas in Europe are under increasing and intersecting pressures, but many of these areas seem to be resilient. The landscapes, the actors, the uses, the challenges, and the way in which the rural is produced and reproduced, they are all changing rapidly. This brings forward new research questions and new answers.

The focus of the Groningen conference is “Rural Geographies in Transition”. Within this focus the following guiding themes are identified:

Population Developments
Socio-spatial Inequalities
Governance and Policies
Economic Challenges
Quality of Life
Smart Villages
Landscape Transitions
Rural Entrepreneurship
Agricultural Transformations
Rural Housing
