Society. Health. Welfare has become a recognised International Conference which brings together researchers and specialists of various fields: sociology, public relations and communication, health and rehabilitation, pedagogy and psychology, social welfare and social work, economics, law and political science.

The 7th conference Society. Health. Welfare is dedicated to urban and rural studies from different perspectives. Cities and countryside are traditionally associated not only with differences in lifestyles but also with differences in opportunities, highlighting the gap between centres and peripheries.

From a rural perspective, practical issues such as access to health, education, humanitarian services, employment, as well demographic processes, leisure and culture, etc. are still relevant.The opportunities of the contemporary modern society make it possible to experience the rhythm of the globalized world and build links and contacts that today contribute to the gradual convergence of contrast between the cities and the countryside.

The organizers of the conference invite researchers to share and spread their knowledge and experience about transformations and resilience development strategies in urban-rural life in the context of global-local interchanges.

The organisers of the 7th conference invite researchers to share and spread their knowledge and experience to build new trajectories in creating one world for all!
