Events/Événements : Rural Redefined, The Georgetown Conference 2013

Source: The Georgetown Conference.
OCTOBER 3-5, 2013, Georgetown, PEI. "For some the line score on rural Atlantic Canada is already written. Our communities are too old and reliant on failing traditional industries. Our youth are leaving for bigger paycheques in bigger centres. We are too dependent on government."

"It is these generalizations that are driving organizers of a unique conference to be held October 3-5, 2013. The Georgetown Conference, Rural Redefined will focus on rural issues and opportunities in an environment free of government influence. But Georgetown is not about criticizing government or failed programs. It is about identifying the issues, promoting solutions and engaging the people who can make change happen on a local level in communities throughout Atlantic Canada."
