no edit summary
'''Appropriate technology villages''' are places where people live with, make and demonstrate [[appropriate technology]], i.e. technology for [[sustainability]], [[affordability]] and [[appropriateness]] to its setting. They have similarities with [[ecovillages]] and some sustainability-oriented [[communes]], and all these concepts overlap to a degree. Initial schooling into AT is often not available within the AT villages themselves, this is often left to the [[AT_school]]s, which are often situated in regular cities or villages.
