LACBP | Los Angeles Community Broadband Project - 0 views

  •  
    Internet isn't a luxury -- not when you need to be online to apply for jobs, to access healthcare, and to communicate with elected officials. Here in LA, the big telecoms can overcharge and underdeliver because they know you don't have a choice. We want to change that. We're a group of creatives and tech workers who are building a local, community driven internet service provider to supply affordable, high-speed, net neutral broadband to Los Angeles.

Home - Collaborative Community - 2 views

  •  
    Collaborative Community is an enabler of transformational change in corporations, local government, social movements, and not-for-profit organisations. Wherever there are people that want to strengthen the communities they are part of, we can help. The manager trying to improve collaboration in her team. The support officer tasked with a community engagement initiative. The business owner wondering where the idea for their next product is going to come from. The environmental manager hoping to embed a culture of environmental awareness in their organisation. To these, and others, we say 'draw on our expertise and experience in fostering collaborative communities'.

Sociocracy For All - Sociocracy Training, implementation and community - 3 views

  •  
     sociocracy is about one-ness. One-ness as in: we are all one. And I don't mean it in an esoteric way. I mean it as interdependence. You cannot do anything without others' contribution. And you cannot do anything without affecting others

Bridging Health & Community - 1 views

  •  
    We're innovators. We're curious. And we're dissatisfied with the status quo. We're dedicated to strengthening the field of practice that bridges health and communities. Bridging Health & Community aims to transform how we approach health so that it goes beyond health care and public health to include fostering community agency. Based in Seattle, WA, with an office in London, UK, we do our field-building work through convening and coaching. We share the fruits of our work with a view to further describing and strengthening the field of practice that bridges the health sector and those that foster community agency. We met through the Creating Health Collaborative, an international group of innovators exploring health from the perspective of communities. By sharing our work through the Collaborative, we learned of the critical link between a community's ability to make purposeful choices and its health.

What is Placemaking? - Project for Public Spaces - 0 views

  •  
    WHAT IF WE BUILT OUR COMMUNITIES AROUND PLACES? As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, Placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, Placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value. More than just promoting better urban design, Placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution.

About THE ABUNDANT COMMUNITY - Abundant Community - 0 views

  •  
    Right in our neighborhood we have the capacity to address our human needs in ways that systems, which see us only as interchangeable units, as problems to be solved, never can. We all have gifts to offer, even the most seemingly marginal among us. This book suggests how to nurture voluntary, self-organizing structures that will reveal these gifts and allow them to be shared to the greatest mutual benefit. Block and McKnight recommend roles we can assume and actions we can take to reweave the social fabric that has been unraveled by consumerism and its belief that however much we have, it is not enough.
