1st Smart Communities Café (19 November 2020)
The 1st Smart Rural Communities’ Café was hosted by Torup (Denmark), one of the 21 selected villages of the Smart Rural 21 project. Peter Plant from Torup was telling about their ‘local democracy’, voluntary work, community fund, how they engage community members through ‘Torup Ting’ and much more. Participant villages (selected and Come Along! villages of the Smart Rural 21 project) had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss relevant practices over a coffee (or tea).
