The population structure in the Nordic countries is changing fast. Ageing, migration, and urbanisation pose challenges for labour markets and welfare provision – especially in remote rural regions. The Covid crisis adds fuel to the fire and the response and resilience differs widely between countries and regions. What are the solutions towards a more sustainable regional development?
Two new reports point to the importance of adding a gender perspective to regional policy and planning, especially in remote areas. Men and women have different migration patterns and educational aspirations. The gender-segregated labour market and traditional gender roles in responsibility for care are persistent. What if rural areas could be frontrunners in breaking gender stereotypes and enabling work-life balance for young families and local entrepreneurs?
NIKK, Nordic Information on Gender, and Nordregio, Nordic Institute for Regional Development, invites you to a webinar exploring the connection between gender and regional development. What can we learn from research and policies, regional experts and local change-makers from some of the most isolated places in the Nordics?
