Champions and Challenges: Redefining rural in Kings County

“Redefining rural” is the topic of the Georgetown Conference planned for October in Georgetown, PEI.

The conference, put on by Newspapers Atlantic – of which the Kings County Advertiser and Register are members, will look at ways to face up to the challenges of rural life.

Over the next nine months, the Kings County Advertiser and Register will be running a series of stories, Champions and Challenges, that look at both sides of the coin: the people who are working to enact change in this area and the challenges we’re facing.
