What will rural areas look like for the next generation? This month, Dan talks to past Rural Youth Europe Chairman, Michael Schwab, and Swedish 4H leader, Isabelle Hal Wilkens, asking them what they think the future holds for rural communities. Rural Youth Europe Vice Chairman, Niall Evans, also takes part in the latest round of ‘Campfire Stories’.
