Rural communities in Japan and the United States face similar challenges such as recruitment and retention of young people, decline of primary and local industries, and the sustainability of natural resources. Similarly, entrepreneurial leaders in both countries are thinking and acting boldly to identify and build on resources to develop creative, strategic solutions.

Panelists and guests, including RFI Fellows, will explore alternative models, best practices and strategies for creating resilient and vibrant rural communities of the future.

This event is free and open to students, faculty, staff and the public. A reception will follow from 4:30-6 p.m.
