Rural Sustainability in the Urban Century

    XV World Congress of Rural Sociology 6-10 July 2021 Cairns Australia

    Start 06 July 2021, 9:00am
    End 10 July 2021, 5:00pm

    Whose versions of sustainability count in the urban century? How does spatial disadvantage intersect with injustices based on gender, ethnic, linguistic, religious and other dimensions of social difference? What opportunities do flows of people, capital, information and commodities between urban and rural spaces present for sustainable rural development?

    As a delegate to the 2021 World Congress of Rural Sociology you will consider these and many other questions relevant to contemporary rural society. Our venue, Cairns, sits on the traditional country of the Gimuy Yidinji and Yirrigandji peoples. Sandwiched between two World Heritage Areas – the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforests of Tropical North Queensland – and with a vast rural hinterland, Cairns is a hub for tourism and tropical agriculture at the heart of the Asia Pacific.
