Climate smart, ecosystem-enhancing and knowledge-based rural expertise and training centres

Home » Projects » Ruralities

RURALITIES creates and enables resources to empower rural people as agents of change in six “Simplified Rural Socio-Ecological Systems” and assist in the exploitation of knowledge and technology for the benefit of rural communities.

The Problem

Climate change adaptation in the rural scene in Europe and in the world is of vital importance.

To ensure that rural areas can continue to provide us with our food, homes, jobs, and essential ecosystems services, an EU Rural Action Plan sets out a long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas up to 2040. It identifies areas of action towards stronger, connected, resilient and prosperous rural areas and communities

Aims

RURALITIES aims to create a robust infrastructure for knowledge sharing, capacity building, and sustainable development in rural areas.

Approach

By combining interdisciplinary expertise, innovative concepts, and community engagement, RURALITIES seeks to empower rural communities to address climate change challenges effectively.

RURALITIES implements a whole ecosystem-based, knowledge-based, social sciences and humanities overarching methodology to deliver a learning framework which enables the effective capacity building of rural communities towards ensuring the sustainable, balanced and inclusive development of simplified socio-ecological systems (SIMSES), and simultaneously contribute to raise rural communities’ awareness on the variety of source-points driving climate change challenges and the related pathways to overcome or mitigate them.

Our role and how the project relates to our work

Earthwatch contributes to the creation of “Living Labs” (research conducted in real-life environments) through our experience in citizen engagement. The work of RURALITIES – that of climate adaptation – is closely linked to our Nature based solutions in cities work.
