As we see the world affected by the spread of Covid-19, it is important to highlight the way communities, and particularly, rural areas, are adapting in responding to the pandemic. Several organisations are centralising online examples of good practices from local responses.
- The European Network for Rural Development has published initiatives from rural areas.
- The association Rurality-Environment-Development is collecting and promoting inspiring initiatives from rural areas.
- ESPON is also collecting examples of local responses at regional, urban and rural levels.
- An interesting blog post by professors Bettina Bock and Jessica Duncan is exploring how Covid-19 is impacting rural-urban relations.
