In an effort to empower rural areas in Europe, the FUTURAL project, co-funded by the European Union, launched in June 2023. These areas, with their vast social, cultural, geographical and topographical diversity present unique challenges and opportunities. These include complex issues such as, depopulation, brain drain, ageing population, limited connectivity, and restricted access to public infrastructure and services.
FUTURAL aims to step into this landscape in order to enhance the resilience, sustainability and connectivity of these areas and eventually the quality of life of citizens living in rural Europe. The project’s mission is rooted in serving these communities, and ensuring they are prepared to face and tackle the above mentioned challenges.
