Rural Resurgence : Innovative Solutions for the Attraction and Retention of Young Adults
June 11-14, 2013
In Golden, BC
The event will bring together a mix of individuals ranging from researchers from a variety of disciplines that have studied interventions, to communities that have piloted innovative projects and governments that have supported initiatives. The event will be infused with the voices of young adults who will give their opinions on what attracts them to rural areas. It will not be a regular conference, but designed in a way to provide opportunities for sharing and exchange so that everyone leaves with new insights and ideas to address this concern in their own context.
We are also gearing up for sponsorship and partners for the event. If this is something you would like to be a part of and support, please contact Nicole Vaugeois at VIU (nicole.vaugeois at viu dot ca) for more information. Our website is just being designed right now but keep posted here for more information and when ready, we will post more details on the event.
