A national guide on “Smart village, towards a French model for rural territories” has been just published in France! The document, produced by the Association pour le Développement en Réseau des Territoires et des Services, is an initiative of the French National Rural Network.

The guide provides rural elected representatives a methodology and concrete examples to put into practice the Smart Village approach in their territory. It is divided into the following five sections: 

  • Smart village, what are we talking about?
  • Methodological references
  • Resources
  • Initiatives and words of actors
  • Lessons learned

According to Céline Dacy,  project manager at ADRETS, “the Smart Villages are part of a logic of decompartmentalisation of the actors, we wanted to address this guide to a wide range of actors”.
