Malaga: 1st. University campus to face depopulation in rural areas
The Malaga Provincial Council, the University of Malaga and its General Foundation organized in November 2020 the 1ST. University Campus to Face Depopulation of Rural Areas.
Its main objective was for young university students to discover opportunities for personal and professional development in the small municipalities of Malaga, and to help them starting and consolidate a life project.
