Post-development as an alternative for "shrinking" regions?

Under the heading "De-Growth, alternative ideas for developing depopulating rural areas", Dr. Thilo Lang reflected in an online seminar on 10 September on the prospects and potentials of regions that are largely disconnected from current economic cycles and development opportunities.

His conclusion: Degrowth, or post-development, is not just interesting for areas that are experiencing a population decline; it also puts smaller, more traditional communities in a good position to do things differently.

The seminar, organised by the Dutch knowledge platform "Kennis voor Krimp", is available as a video recording. The presentation by Thilo Lang starts at 9:48.
