This edition examines in depth the concept of ‘rural proofing’ and how it has been applied in practice. It studies the UK and Nordic approaches and features the visions of European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Phil Hogan, and Guillaume Cros, member of the European Committee of the Regions.

The edition also includes the regular ‘News and updates’ from the ENRD and the EU, as well as the usual ‘Rural issues, Rural perspectives’ bringing you stakeholder voices on topics ranging from community-led rural broadband initiatives to the first ever European Rural Youth Parliament.

The factsheet overviews the digital divide between urban and rural areas, the practice of rural digital hubs, short examples and relevant ENRD resources.
It was prepared as background material for the ENRD Seminar on ‘Revitalising Rural Areas through Business Innovation’ (Brussels, March 2017).
