Living Rural, working urban
Tuesday, 7th September, 14:00-15:15 CEST
How can living labs contribute to making rural life attractive? How to attract Digital Nomads?
The aim of this debate is to extract ideas about why it would be a good choice to live in a village under 20.000 population, opportunities, services, benefits, etc. While working in a more urban environment. The existence of a living lab in a little village should be a guarantee towards digital services, towards remote work, bank access, etc.
People could have the best of two separated worlds: the city and the village.
