The Celtiberian mountain range is the most disjointed territory of the EU (lower density than Lapland or Siberia); it is a mountain area, sparsely populated, rural and remote. The rural exodus began in the late 50s by a development policy promoted by Franco with booming cities and a little modernized and poor countryside. The cause of depopulation was not natural, was political; highlighting the city and forgetting the villages, so rural world face an endemic problem; while there is no generational change, the aging population simply dies. The lack of social services; education, transport, employment and health are the major causes of migration. Rural organisations are very aware of the lobbying power of other sectors and they believe that pressure at international level may have impact on what national and regional governments do.
