Echoes of Change


Parts of rural Asia are changing. Youths who had left their towns and villages are returning – and staying – revitalizing rural economies by marrying traditional livelihoods with emerging fields like e-commerce, eco-tourism, software design, fashion and textiles, content creation and more. What’s compelling them? How will they help rural folks turn the tide and escape the clutches of poverty and build a brighter future? Could the wealth gap between rural and urban communities narrow? What are the impacts to the social landscapes?
