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:

  • AurovilleW in India (though the emphasis is broader, and there is a spiritual basis).
  • (one in Mexico?)
  • Open Source Ecology - Factor E Farm Facility

Proposed examples:

A similar concept is Living Co-laboratories, developed by Marcin Jakubowski and Richard Schulte
