An Ottawa technology professional has made available 70 acres of land at Lac Des Loups in the Outaouais for regional organizations to support the co-creation of a Smart Village.
A Smart Village offers affordable living with low cost natural housing, food growing systems, shared electric transportation and micro-grid energy. It is a living lab with makerspaces, creative collectives, incubator/accelerator programs for new technologies and business with intergenerational programs.
Smart Villages are new rural communities that begin with open data standards and civic engagement platforms to co-create its design with bioregional data first.
Through experimentation and education, the village updates in real time and enables its residents to live in a circular economy with regenerative design.
Each new Smart Village becomes part of a global network of other Smart Villages that work together and share learnings to solve the greatest challenges of our time.
We are looking to partner with you and your members, customers and employers. We need regional technology solutions, datasets, professionals, schools and educators.
This is for Ottawa, Ontario and Outaouais, Quebec organizations to partner together in the bioregion.
