Announcement

Presentation

The interdisciplinary summer school on “Rural Futures” will take place from 19th till 23rd of September 2022 at the Akademiezentrum Sankelmark in the German-Danish border region. It is dedicated to current developments in European rural areas and wants to illuminate them from within.

We want to discuss new perspectives and approaches to the question what ruralities are and what they should become in the future. Therefore, we depart from the idea that people used to live and work with local resources. However, as a result from globalization, local societies and economies have become detached from the land, increasingly segregated and marginalised. These developments have led to a drastic increase in the polarisation between urban and rural areas, clearly visible in political preferences in many countries.

The summer school seeks to involve transnational and interdisciplinary perspectives on addressing these topics. It aims to strengthen the network and cooperation between scholars, practitioners and local actors in Germany, Denmark and beyond. It will include project presentations, short lectures and guided tours as well as exchange with local actors.

International scholars - doctoral candidates, recent postdocs and master’s students from various disciplines as well as practitioners and entrepreneurs, architects, actors from urban and regional planning, administration, business development and NGOs can apply until 30th June 2022. Please find the call for application with further information attached to this announcement.

The summer school is being organized by the German ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius, the Centre of Rural Research of the University of Southern Denmark in Esbjerg, the Danish embassy in Berlin, the Europäische Akademie Schleswig-Holstein and Europe Direct Südschleswig.
