'''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.
== Real world examples:==
* [[Auroville]]{{wp sup|Auroville}} in India (though the emphasis is broader, and there is a spiritual basis).
* [[Open Source Ecology]] - Factor E Farm Facility
See also the Directory of European eco-centres
== Proposed examples:==
* [[User:Vinay_Gupta|Vinay Gupta]], [[User:Spm|Smári McCarthy]] and [[User:Chriswaterguy|Chriswaterguy]] have speculated about setting one up, possibly in the South of [[India]] or elsewhere in Asia. (We could live in [[Hexayurt]]s.)
