Simona Zollet is originally from Italy and is now a researcher and educator at Hiroshima university who is focused on rural areas around the Chugoku-Shikoku areas of Japan.

Here we talk about some of Simona's insights about successful case studies that she has found in small rural communities and interesting similarities and differences in comparison between what is happening in Japan and Italy. Simona is particularly interested in entrepreneurship and regenerative agriculture projects as examples of sustainable success.
