    In South Korea, many island communities face the economic challenges of a declining and ageing population.

    It is a problem for many rural and remote areas in developed countries.

    But one island off the country’s southwest coast is trying to change that, thanks to the colour purple.

    Al Jazeera’s Rob McBride reports from the ‘Purple Islands’, South Korea.
