This is a new MTU project that looks at technologies that can be used to improve rural livelihood strategies and sustainability in rural communities in the U.S. (specifically the UP of Michigan). This project is tied closely to social science research focusing on establishing community relationships, community driven development, and collaboration for community sustainability and reduction in poverty.
