Rural Conversations was a series of three stakeholder roundtable events and was produced in collaboration with the Department of Rural and Community Development. The series provided discussion forums for rural development stakeholders and took place in three cluster regions: the west, the north-east and the south-east. The three separate themes discussed at the individual cluster venues were economic development, social cohesion and sustainable rural communities.
Each conversation stimulated suggestions from a wide range of rural stakeholders at regional and national level, which will inform the development of rural and community development policy.
Each conversation was audio recorded and a rapporteur’s report was produced for each event.
Podcasts and reports for each conversation are available to download
