KOSMOS CONFERENCE

5. Urban and rural: a necessary partnership

Since the rise of the first cities 5,000 years ago, there has always been a very strong connection between cities and rural areas, with intense flows of people, goods, capital and information. Thus, rural-urban partnership is not a new feature. However, opposing dynamics between the urban and the rural, e.g. lifestyles, demographic and economic or ecological developments, trends on the (urban) consumption side and the (rural) production side may lead to a perception of an increasing divide. Such opposing trends could be intensification and extensification up to abandonment with multiple implications for the sustainability of urban and rural areas. We invite papers that (1) explore phenomena of urban-rural interlinkages and its implications for sustainability, (2) develop methods to understand such interlinked phenomena and (3) develop tools that support a sustainable development for urban-rural partnerships.
