Rural Renewal

Both nationally and internationally, there are ongoing changes within villages, the agricultural sector and the surrounding natural landscape. The villages are subject to depopulation, farmers are ending their business, the soil is depleted or over-fertilised , the land is suffering from extreme drought and/or excessive rainfall. Food safety and nitrogen problems are major themes. How can we offer new opportunities for the existing (cultural) landscape, agriculture, nature and recreation through circular agriculture, integrated in an comprehensive strategic design?
