      About this list;

      Global Villages (Network) is a network of people that think something called "Global Villages" is desireable and possible and they want to work for it.

      Global Villages stems from the idea of a positive exchange of energy between the city and the village, the idea of a dyadic world where each side  profits enormously from the counterpart.  The core idea is promoting a  new economic logic of extending or creating kinds of "household  economies" to whole villages -  and have those empowered villages  cooperate globally, with cities as hubs of services and inventions, but also increasingly among themselves.

      The purpose of this global cooperation is primarily the improvement of a local cooperative lifebase - virtually anywhere. Cooperation thus means exchange of knowledge, joint research and development, sharing network effects, but also direct buildup support out of a positive self - interest: the more Global Villages exist, the bigger the knowledge base, the higher the standards they can aim at.

      * The topic of this list is to conceive and to prepare to build Global Villages - technologically, ecologically, psychologically, sociologically, architecturewise, philosophically.
