What do we stand for?
Rural Revival focuses on working for the revitalization of rural areas. We aim to contribute to the transformation that rural areas need, providing solutions to the existence of depopulated areas, with less and less activity and fewer support networks.
Specifically in Spain, 48% of current municipalities have a population density of fewer than 12.5 inhabitants per square kilometer, a threshold above which the European Union considers density to below.
In contrast, the rural areas offer endless possibilities and a better quality of life, which has been demonstrated after the crisis resulting from Covid-19.
