Abstract

A woman, a farm, a school, a machine, a network, a vision. The sum of many unspectacular steps condensed into a sustainable synergy for an old craft and the people of a region. A structurally backward area far from major urban centers. The agriculture industry that dominated the region in former times has been supplanted, and while industrialization and later the information technology boom have brought prosperity even to this remote area, unemployment rates have to this day remained higher than average. A description that pretty much applies not only to this region in central Finland but also to other rural regions throughout Europe.
