Dear Blue Blue,

This week we’ve taken a Smart Cities vision piece from Ericsson as a top story because so many of its arguments can we believe be applied to our Smart Villages concept. Access to energy and ICT can just as effectively lead to the Networked Society in a rural context and provide a counterbalance to urbanisation. With an efficient renewables-powered mini-grid, the convergence of many powerful forces, such as near-ubiquitous connectivity, mobility, big data, 3D printing, robotics and cloud technologies could also result in smart, sustainable villages that use ICT to improve livability, workability, resilience and sustainability. In the Smart Villages Initiative we are now looking to understand the issues and complexity of the stakeholder ecosystem involved in achieving this vision. Part of this involves reaching out to the Smart Cities advocates to see ourselves a part of a common approach and perhaps seeing ultimately seeing SDG11 replace “communities”  with “Smart Villages”.
