It's a conversation with Jay Wong, who’s developing “regenerative smart villages” in Portugal. What would it look like to have residential, commercial, and agricultural life happening in a multi-generational community, one that handles waste, water, food and electricity sustainably?

That’s a big question, and Jay’s learning about all aspects of the answer, in the project he co-founded: Inspira Villages.
