Peripheries need sustainable development improvements through social changes. The rural societies vary depending on a region but it is the society that implements change. In my opinion the EU should bring the local communities together by programmes that would at the same time integrate and educate the population. As the citizens of villages do not entirely depend on the external entities influencing their habits or customs, such events should be coorganized by the locals. This could help identify problems whinin the communities, such as using poisonous materials for heating which would decrese the air quality in the village. As people could actually smell the pollution directly from the air they breathe they would be more determined to get rid of a problem. Therefore they would ask the programme supervisor to help the family that releases the pollutants through providing the resources of greener energy. It is important that the programmes do not focus on penalties(which are not affordable for empoverished rural inhabitants) but on the delivery of proper resources for the greater good of our globe.

Rural regions should not suffer from low quality public service. They still need transport, and train transport. Post offices. High quality schools. Libraries or other cultural houses. But there is a limit how much you can move to rular. Sometimes the answear is good connection with nearest city. The big problem could be One Metropoly model. EU should be more like network.
