Appalachian Just Transition

In partnership with the West Virginia Reed School of Media, West Virginia Public Radio, and Appalshop’s Making Connections, we work to help rural coal communities and families transition away from a coal dependent economy through the creative use of digital media.

In partnership with West Virginia University, Rural Strategies created 100 Days of Appalachia, a project dedicated to sharing the diverse stories that exist in the region. Past profiles include a 360° video series titled Muslim in Appalachia, a day in the life of a refugee from Kurdistan now living in West Virginia.
