2018 Symposium

Where it all started. The Rethinking Rural 2018 Symposium gathered together 50 rural millennial leaders from across the country to learn, share, and celebrate what we love about rural.


We interviewed the rural leaders from our 2018 Symposium to find out a bit more about what the work, struggles, successes, and hopes they have for their own rural communities.

Our 4 Year Plan

We took all that we learned from our cohort of leaders at our 2018 Symposium and through in-depth interviews to create a 4 year plan of where we’ll go next.
