From Afternoons, 1:30 pm on 1 November 2021

If you're tired of the rat race and expensive living - It might be time to think of leaving the bright lights of the big cities. 

That's what the people behind a new campaign, launched today - are encouraging young people to do. 

Think Rural is an initiative supported by local councils around the country, and its aim is to attract young people to areas they might never have considered. 

Noa Woolloff is the National Programme Manager of the Mayor's Taskforce for Jobs, he talks to Jesse about the opportunities away from the big cities.
