Last Thursday, 20 March 2014, XSProject took part in The 1st International Conference on Village Revitalization in conjoint event with The 9th International Conference of Design for Sustainability, Destination 2014-2018. The event was held in Kandangan Village, Temanggung, Central Java, the home of Magno Radio.
The theme of the event is “It’s Time Back to Village”. Now is the right time to think about how village can be a place for future living. Village has a lot of potentials to be a comfortable living place, and also a sustainable community, independent and good social structure. This momentum comes when development in information and communication technology opens the isolation in the remote areas. Village promises a better living quality for human and nature.
