Sarantaporo community network: a social innovation to connect people

Back in 2010, a young group of people in Sarantaporo (central Greece, near the Olympus mountain) decided to take action to develop connectivity in their village, where telecom operators had found no interest and viability to invest in connectivity in this rural area. In this area, located 1-hour drive from the nearest city of Larisa, Sarantaporo.gr emerged as a social innovation which built on collective knowledge to provide a resilient Internet network.

Sarantaporo.gr brought together people with the same problem and managed to collectively bring a solution for the well-being of 15 villages thanks to the engagement of civil society.

Sarantaporo.gr initiative combines a tri-fold approach. It deploys and ensures the maintenance of Internet network in remote mountain villages. It trains local communities on the use of technology and the whole structure of the community network. It connects people and builds strong relationships in communities sharing the need for Internet connectivity.

Discover in our good practice how they built the Internet network and how they trained and gathered people around this project.
