RHINELANDER – What makes rural communities tick?

Individuals with thoughts and insights on that question who are interested in sharing their ideas with the public are invited to submit a presentation proposal for a TEDx-style event at Nicolet College on Friday, Oct. 1.

The theme is “How Rural Communities Thrive in the 21st Century.”

“We are inviting anyone with ideas and thoughts on the role of rural communities in a globalized world to submit their ideas and proposals,” said Nicolet Sociology Instructor David Holt, one of the event organizers. “We are particularly interested in stories of how people survived and coped with the pandemic. These could be stories of entrepreneurship, leadership, innovation, and coping and management of the crisis in a way that demonstrates how rural communities thrive in the 21st Century.”

Presentations can be no more than 18 minutes long, and proposals can be sent to Sara Tienhaara at [email protected].

The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, Aug. 6.

For more information about the event at Nicolet, contact Tienharra at 715-365-4566.
