Demographic change nowadays is besides climate change one of the most important challenges Europe and its regions are facing. Low birth rates and migration are the main reasons for the shrinking of population numbers in many European regions. Additionally until 2030 every third person in the EU will be 60 years or even older. Particularly in rural and peripheral regions of Europe the consequences of demographic change will be and already are drastic. This results in increasing obstacles for the provision of sustainable public services. At the same time regional requirements are changing. European regions require an appropriate framework to exchange experiences and information to be able to adapt to the changes and challenges caused by demographic change. EURUFU (European Rural Futures) wants to create this framework.
