RSN Seminar Programme open!

It’s time to get organised for 2024 and make some time in your diary to attend one of our rural focused seminars.

Almost 550 of you attended an RSN seminar in 2023 so let's make it the place to be this year!

We provide 8 events throughout the year, each featuring 3 expert speakers on the issue, with a range of strategic viewpoints, and case studies from our local authorities and member organisations. 

This year, the seminars include:

  • Rural Net Zero
  • Rural Connectivity
  • Rural Fair Funding
  • Rural Economy
  • Rural Transport
  • Rural Affordable Housing
  • Rural Planning
  • Rural Health and Care

The seminars are all held online making it easy to attend from your desk with no need to travel.  We like them to be lively events so you will have the chance to listen to the latest thinking or research on an issue, and then share your thoughts in the chat and ask questions of the speakers.

Access to these seminars is provided free to member organisations of the Rural Services Network so if you are a local authority in membership or part of the following groups, Rural Services Partnership, Rural Health and Care Alliance, Rural Market Town Group, view the full programme and book onto seminars by clicking below:
