Adaptive transition in the digital age

Dr. Roberto Gallardo,  the founder and leader of the Mississippi State University Extension Service Intelligent Community Institute, has published a new book titled Responsive Countryside: The Digital Age and Rural Communities.

We, at the Adaptive Transition Initiative, agree with Dr. Gallardo that intelligent communities (not smart communities) will generate regional and rural innovations and facilitate adaptive transitions in the digital age. He further argues that it would be imperative to address the rural digital divide revisiting extension theory and practice with a focus on asset building (also called ABCD – asset based community development).
