Aims, contents and method of the course

Digitization is a societal megatrend with an impact on spatial development. With the corona pandemic, digital and therefore location-independent forms of communication, work and study have gained in importance. Especially in rural areas, digitization is given special opportunities to be available: through innovative solutions in the provision of services of general interest, through new forms of communication and participation, and through new options in the field of employment. The excursion offers an overview of current developments in a wide range of topics. Case studies are presented and current strategies and concepts are discussed with experts.

The third part of this excursion focuses on new forms of work that are made possible by digitization. Co-working spaces are currently perceived as promising in many rural areas and made available to the population. During the excursion, the different forms of co-working in rural areas are discussed and compared.
