IRN gatherings emphasise the sharing of practical experience and the value of local knowledge in addressing local challenges. This is especially important in the areas of community and economic development, health, education, culture and environment.

The theme of IRN 2012 is Rural and Remote Resilience: Making the Priorities Possible. A key aim of IRN 2012 is to attract presentations which join together community groups and practitioners with researchers / academics and or policy makers / industry. IRN 2012 will pay particular attention to the policy and governance challenges related to the differences between regional, rural and remote communities.
