SMART Communities

We, as people, thrive in a community. Since the introduction of globalization, the industrial revolution, and the digital revolution, we have become more disconnected from each other. We are now missing the feeling of coming together as a community to help each other operate and thrive.

Thriving as a Community

For a community to thrive, we need more than just strong economic development. We need to take into account the quality of life, quality of health, quality of systems working together with community stakeholders and leadership establishing a good quality of governance.

Quality of Governance

Together, we can create a better community using additional technologies with web 2.0 (what we currently have), and web 3.0 (blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, NFT’s, DAO’s, metaverse, decentralized apps, etc.)

life, health and systems all connected and balanced together for quality of governance.

Smart Community Planning

Supporting citizen involvement in the delivery of “Smart Services” — for example citizens in urban slums in Less Developed Countries helping with the collective mapping of existing public toilets and then working with planners to identify the most appropriate locations for additional or alternative public toilets (or public water supplies).

Smart Community Governance

Providing a means for public scrutiny of municipal budgets including providing the funding for the training and support required for those with little education to review budgets and ensure that they are being spent appropriately and equitably among citizens

Smart Community Health

Supporting decentralized health support workers and facilities including public health facilities in low income areas–including information and training, a tiered system of diagnostics to ensure an efficient use of scarce public health resources.

Smart Community Citizenship

Ensuring support to location-based electronic interaction among citizens around issues of local interest with information (government data) being structured (geo-tagged) in such a way that the information could be directly accessed and locally aggregated to support participation/intervention in municipal planning and program design processes.

Smart Community Infrastructure

Incident reporting facilities structured so that citizens can report on issues concerning public infrastructure in an aggregated way based on location and where these electronic facilities are transparent to the user allowing for inter-individual and collective collaboration as required to ensure an active response.

Smart Community Resources

Digital support for administrative decentralization so that administration is structured in such a way as to be responsive to local circumstances and requirements and including structured processes for citizen participation in localized decision making including resource prioritization and allocation. A “smart” electrical grid for example should be able to ensure that some degree of control over how scarce electricity or water might be allocated in a municipal region–giving priority to hospitals and schools and less priority to individual users particularly high volume individual users

Smart Community Dwellings

Digitally enabling public land use and dwelling records including rentals, renter complaints, work orders, etc. made accessible (and usable) in local communities including through providing training and support in how to use these to protect individual and communal land rights and to use compiled information to support the rights of renters and those with informal dwellings


There are many technologies and ways to apply these benefits. They aren't limited to just one situation. We can work with you in these areas.
