This is the primary objective of “Plattform Land”. The focus is on maintaining the quality of life in the periphery, which is the living, economic, working and recreational space for more than half of South Tyroleans. This includes ensuring functioning services and infrastructures, such as local supply, social and medical services or fast internet connections. Decisive for the rural area is the preservation or creation of jobs within reach.
At the same time, intelligent land use is also becoming a challenge for a country like South Tyrol, where settlement space is limited.
Existing buildings and land should be better used in order to reduce land consumption without preventing a necessary development in economy and society. “Plattform Land” would like to raise awareness of the challenges facing rural areas and intelligent land use and encourage the implementation of appropriate measures.
