We call this body a “Future Center” — a physical, organizational, community space at the disposal of all the residents and organizations operating in the town, to create a town-wide vision operating according to the principles of a “sustainable community.” The goal of the center was to create a civil system of decision making, connected to the local council’s process of decision making.Implemented in Be’er Sheva

1. A place for discourse of “mixing colors” — an opportunity for encounters that don’t usually take place, among people from different fields.

2. A “future museum” — future images of the contents

3. An “innovation laboratory” — a lab to accelerate innovation and initiative, through creative thinking, fruitful sharing of ideas

4. A “learning center” for the development of training programs for teahcers.

Some of this vision is also written up incredibly well in Matt Hern‘s Everywhere All the Time.
