The emptied Spain speaks from Tierra de Campos | Radio Valladolid



Depopulation and its effects on the whole of Castilla y León have been the main problem in this community for decades. The lack of job opportunities in rural areas has been consolidating a massive exodus whose antecedents date back to the 1960s. Young people born in the smallest towns have grown up accompanied by the idea of ​​”leaving town” to develop personally and professionally and many of them when the time has come have only fulfilled this conviction.

The need to stop the population drain suffered by rural environments is evident. It is strategic for a country not to concentrate its entire population in large cities and therefore have a rational distribution of citizens throughout the territory. The attractiveness of large population centers has been reducing, sometimes extremely, the presence of inhabitants in towns where nowadays only a small group of people reside.

The inhabitants in this case of the rural area of ​​Valladolid do not want to miss the train of the future and for this reason they demand the necessary services and resources that allow them to value all their agri-food, cultural, wine tourism or heritage potential. Quality access to the network cannot be delayed any longer. It does not seem reasonable that there are still areas of difficult coverage in which it is impossible, among other things, to establish a business due to this lack. In addition, it is necessary to increase the commitment to the transformation of the raw material obtained in rural areas into products made here for two fundamental reasons that have to do with the economic benefit, essential when establishing population and with the principles of sustainability that appear in the major objectives collected by all administrations.
