Iivantiira Village Society
Country : Finland
Website : https://iivantiira.net/
Iivantiira Village Society is a non-profit organisation, which on a voluntary and self-reliant basis improves the life conditions of inhabitants of the village neighborhood and the working conditions of local enterprises. The village has been - in terms of finances and voluntary work input - the driving force in the construction of the village fiber network in north-western Kuhmo, Finland. As next step in smart village development, the village will construct a wireless network, which can surpass problems created by long-term electric breakdowns occurring in the region. Apart from being an aid for the local rescue services, this will also speed up the adoption of Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology, which is an essential building block in moving towards information society.
