We accept digital is not everything! People still need to meet up face to face whether for work, village matters or socially. However with the ever improving connectivity in rural Scotland and the amazing tools provided by improvement in digital technology we feel we need to make the most of it.
Through our Smart Village Digital Champions -motivated local people who are highly skilled digitally- we hope to support local enterprises, associations and in turn individuals to become highly skilled in using this new set of tools.
In each Smart Village the SVS Project Manager and local stakeholders will identify local challenges and seek to develop digital solutions. These could be business driven such as e-commerce solutions, booking widgets or for wider community benefit environmental warning and response systems.
