Transnational forum
The event is dealing with young women as a key target group of regional development
strategies to tackle demographic change in rural areas. Female and youth sensitive
concepts and experiences from companies and regions to limit further bran-drain of
young females will be presented.
Presentations and discussions will especially focus on the importance of female networks
and the image of rural regions. In this respect approaches for the improvement of living
and working conditions for women in rural areas from six regions in Austria, Germany,
Hungary, Poland and Slovenia will be discussed with committed women, EU-policymakers, entrepreneurs and regional representatives.
The Transnational forum is organised in the frame of the project WOMEN which is
implemented through the Central Europe Programme and co-financed by the ERDF.
The entrance is free of charge. The language of the transnational forum is English.
