The Plymouth Rural Futures Conference 

The Rural Citizen:  governance, culture and wellbeing in the 21st century 

The University of Plymouth, United Kingdom, 5-7 April 2006

www.ruralfuturesconference.org 

This is a conference concerning people who live and dwell in rural areas, and as such is particularly relevant both to those employed in the processes of rural development, and to academics engaged in studying those processes.   Each of the words in the title of this conference is open to many interpretations, and our aim is to offer an event which encourages and celebrates that multiplicity in the interests of creative, and potentially exciting, analysis of rural life in the 21st century.

RURAL FORUM 2005
DATES ANNOUNCED

Manitoba's 13th annual Rural Forum will take place April 28 to 30, 2005, at
the Keystone Centre in Brandon, Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives
Minister Rosann Wowchuk announced today.

"Networking opportunities like those presented at Rural Forum are vital as
rural and northern communities continue to seek new economic development
opportunities to remain vibrant and sustainable," said Wowchuk.  "Rural
Forum provides a venue where community and business leaders can gain new
knowledge and insights from seminars, workshops and open forums that can
help spark new ideas and partnerships necessary for the continued growth of
our rural economy."

Rural Forum also provides ample opportunity for Manitoba families to enjoy a
variety of activities including hundreds of community, cultural and business
exhibits, a food court featuring Manitoba eateries, a one-day craft show and
Manitoba entertainment.    

In conjunction with Rural Forum, Manitoba Education, Citizenship, and Youth
will hold a two-day youth conference on April 28 and 29, called Youth
Citizenship in Action!  The first day of the conference will include
workshops that demonstrate a wide range of citizenship activities to engage
Manitoba youth.  The second day will feature the Youth Town Hall with
provincial ministers, which has become a regular feature of the rural forum.

"The theme Youth Citizenship in Action acknowledges the importance of
preparing our youth to be the leaders of tomorrow and considers the issue of
youth retention in rural and northern communities," said Education,
Citizenship and Youth Minister Peter Bjornson.  "The Youth Town Hall is one
aspect of the youth forum where our young people can speak openly about
their schools and their communities.  I look forward to welcoming all
Manitoban youth to participate in this and other forum activities."

Rural Forum is an annual community economic development conference and
tradeshow managed in partnership by Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural
Initiatives and more than 40 public and private sector partners.

The sessions could focus on the implications of the language used on the research emphases, methods, approaches, orientations, forms and styles of doing sociology. They could also become occasions for the already existing associations organized on the basis of common language, to present their achievements, and also for new ones organized along language lines to be initiated and launched.
