Within the choice of where and how to live, the fact remains that currently over half of the world’s population (54%) reside in urban areas largely attributed to employment opportunities. Digital technology suggests that this specific vocational benefit of city life is actually available worldwide in different formats with simply a stable Wi-Fi connection. Nine to five office jobs shift towards goal oriented remote jobs, Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) open access to high quality education, and social media offer the rapid exchange of ideas and information. A group of individuals, able to reap the economic benefits of urban life from a remote area, seized the opportunity to build a new model of ‘counterunbanization’ in abandoned villages. I have coined these modern-day pioneers, “Buillagers” – the village builders.
