Inspiration: Brain GAIN
Many people know the term "brain drain" but are you familiar with "brain gain?"
University of Minnesota Extension Research Fellow Ben Winchester has been examining the phenomenon of small towns seeing 30-49 year-olds and their families moving into rural communities. He recently recorded a presentation about brain gain - check it out to learn more. The video lasts an hour so treat it like a podcast and get ready for some strong food for thought.
Check out the Brain Gain website for even more information on the trend, resources for communities, the research backing it up, and how it has been covered in the news.
