The Horizon 2020-funded project, RURITAGE, started a call for action in April 2020 to collect examples of actions of resilience intended to increase and strengthen rural communities during the current global pandemic. Relevant examples will be used in a final report on solutions and initiatives for enhancing resilience in rural communities across Europe and all around the globe.
RURITAGE is a four-year-long EU-funded research project, initiated in June 2018, striving to enable rural regeneration through heritage. The project aims to sustainably enhance local heritage for regional and community development. The intention is to regenerate rural areas with the help of the Systemic Innovation Areas (SIA) framework which identifies unique heritage potential within rural communities.
