‘Keen on the country’ at the Green Week - Modern rural life: neighbourly, embracing all the generations, and increasingly digital

A variety of different topics dealing with modern rural life awaits visitors in Hall 4.2 at the International Green Week Berlin 2018. From 19 to 28 January exhibitors from country areas will be presenting their ideas for villages and regions that are a pleasure to live in, and with their initiatives and projects they are bringing the subject of rural development alive and making it easily understandable.

Some of the aspects that visitors can learn about include the possibilities being presented by digitalisation, what ‘co-working spaces’ are, how to organise active neighbourhood assistance or a meeting place for different generations, what can be done when a village suddenly loses its shop, and how to safeguard health care and mobility. By means of an app visitors can locate regional products and learn to identify meat from animals that have been raised humanely. There are many opportunities to get actively involved, as an enjoyable way of discovering more about rural regions, and there are some attractive prizes to be won as well. And more information and entertainment is being provided by the Land Show stage programme, presented by Heike Götz and Petra Schwarz and organised by the Agro-Social Society.
