People are migrating from rural areas to the cities, leading to population decline in villages and demographic change. This is a global phenomenon not restricted to Austria or Styria – although the causes behind the development of course differ. The result is a diminishing infrastructure (doctors, schools, shops, public transport), which only speeds up the downward spiral. The exhibition CountryLife is accompanied by the CountryTalks, which provide a platform for stakeholders involved in exemplary projects and strategies in Austria and worldwide, contributing to a revitalisation of rural areas with the aim of encouraging forward planning, reflection and participation.

The CountryTalks take place online via Zoom. Registration via the HDA website is required to participate in the panels.
