Please join county, city, school, and township colleagues for wide-ranging information and discussion sessions to explore trends affecting communities. The Center for Rural Policy and Development and the University of Minnesota-Extension will share insights related to aging, technology, immigration, economic volatility, workforce challenges, housing, etc. During these sessions, there will be opportunities for local government leaders to address ways of working together during these changing times to emerge resilient and ready for “what's next.” All are welcome to attend.
The Center for Rural Policy and Development is a non-partisan, not-for-profit policy research organization dedicated to benefiting Minnesota by providing its policy makers with unbiased information and evaluation of issues from a rural perspective.
UMN Extension's Rural Stress Task Force applies programming and expertise to help families respond to current economic, environmental, and societal challenges that affect communities across the state. The team works with state agencies and agricultural organizations as well as colleagues throughout the University of Minnesota.
