Smart Village Kootenays

We are at a crossroads with humanity. The Climate Emergency is the most important issue of our lifetime, followed by the intersection of exponential technologies as a disruptive but positive force to wield into economic diversity and regenerative living. COVID-19 has created an exodus from big cities, allowing them to breathe, heal, and mass climate migration has occurred during political turmoil. A perfect storm for rural Canada, and a shock to our system to move ahead in collaboration around the world.

We are a collective of Canadian Smart Cities and global Regenerative Living professionals. We lead a collaborative local-to-global approach to improving smart communities through research and experience applied directly to the problems rural areas face. Partners throughout the world at local, regional, and national scales benefit from our ability to improve capacity to co-create innovation, access data, and connected technology. The global pandemic, with decentralization everywhere, including remote work, ubiquitous connectivity and efficient transportation, will evolve real estate by giving everyone a chance to codesign resilient, affordable, equitable, healthy and regenerative communities together.

Our main partner, ReGen Villages Canada builds these regenerative and resilient communities using Canadian tech, local organizations and development companies. New communities are connected to each other and to existing communities in smart bioregions, through the Village OS platform. This creates a border free autonomous system to optimize and improve our lives, and mitigate our challenges.

Smart Villages are a new, healthier way to live. They are communities that integrate technology and nature into regenerative living. They operate from the principles of biomimicry and biophilic design, creating environments that support the health of the bioregion, and the people & other living beings within it.
