In 2018 we explored what are the challenges of rural Poland and what can we do about them. Together we brought expertise from different disciplines and focused on one thing: how can we make the life of those who live in the Polish Radzyń Podlaski County better. We worked with local businesses, civil organisations and the public sector. With the local agents of change. Together we looked for answers to the following questions.
How might we tell the story of Radzyn county so that it becomes attractive to visitors and young entrepreneurs?
How might we keep the food tradition of Radzyn alive?
How might we design from scratch, or hack existing, public spaces to bring people together?
How might we introduce behavioural change to the people in the countryside that supports wellbeing and that sticks long-term?
