AbstractThe Fifth International Symposium, The Future of Rural Peoples, addresses the health of people in the context of the economy, the environment, and the community. With profound changes affecting the very survival of rural people, this historic conference sought to connect new knowledge and past experience in new ways to point to the Future of Rural Peoples. The Symposium was intended to be inclusive of all rural settings, from those in fully industrialized countries to those in emerging or subsistence economies. This symposium brought together researchers, policy makers, rural people, and practitioners to consider systems, strategies, projects and processes that have contributed to healthy rural economies, healthy people, healthy environment and healthy communities.
