Rural at the Edge
The 2nd Nordic conference for rural research
21st to 23rd of May 2012,
University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu
A number of social challenges and policy issues are confronting Nordic rural areas. The shifting flows and paths of global change, climate change mitigation and adaptation as well as environmental changes, create diverse challenges and opportunities for social and economic transformations in the Nordic setting. The theme of the second Nordic Rural Research conference is "Rural at the Edge" indicating not only our Nordic location at the outskirts of Europe, but also a focus on issues that emerge in this changing landscape and increasing interdependency between countries and regions.
The conference will be held in Joensuu 21st – 23rd of May 2012. Further information is available HERE
