Our Best Practices Library is a ‘How To’ blueprint guide for Smart Village-supported local economic and community development.
We analyze and document innovations and case studies from around Scotland and the world, and organize these into template models for assembling your own local Action Plan.
- Build out your Digital Economy Infrastructure for rural communities. Expand your broadband capacity and build Co-Working ‘Digital Enterprise Centres‘ and achieve more Digital Inclusion.
- Encourage more Rural Entrepreneurship, expanding key activities such as Digital Tourism – Enable the community to better promote it’s tourism attractions online and similarly equip artisans with ‘Virtual Farmer Markets‘ so they can sell more online and export to global markets.
- Equip your community with better tools for strong Local Democracy, enabling residents to participate in key activities such as budgeting decisions.
These are intended as templates for major program plans for local communities, within overall headline goals such as Building Economy and Employment.
