"Local supply put to the test - is the neighbourhood still that good?"
At a time when metropolises are growing more and more and rural areas are losing inhabitants, we still feel that the city is often just a compromise and that life in the country would be preferable. But why does the decision to live in the countryside fail? What strategies and offers are needed to make rural areas an attractive place to live? Is life in the countryside also recognised as a potential by the younger generation? What are the opportunities and risks of living in the region?
The Salon Europa-Forum Wachau invites you to discuss these and other questions together.

Martin Eichtinger, Provincial Councillor and President of Europa-Forum Wachau
Christoph Weber, Mayor of the municipality of Sitzenberg-Reidling
