Practical ‘hands on’ ideas – not lots of meetings.
Support for getting things going – no complicated processes.
Regardless of your starting point Every One Every Day has been designed with all your life circumstances in mind. We are really good at making it easy for people to get involved in activity that they enjoy and benefit from. It’s our thing.
Every One Every Day recognises that most people have busy lives. Between work, raising children, caring for older relatives and keeping households going, people need participation opportunities that fit with all the other things going on
imagine.. if we didn’t have busy lives.. ie: a nother way book

Almost every problem we face needs to be dealt with, as a first step, by reconnecting compassionately with the people around us. Inspiring & beautiful piece by @georgemonbiot about this: https://t.co/ySZ4UpJo7c (http://twitter.com/johannhari101/status/1088402256880455680?s=17)
global.. if it includes both missing pieces.. simultaneously..
The best antidote to the rising tide of demagoguery and reaction is a politics of belonging based on strong and confident local communities.
belonging and authenticity/eudaimonia.. need both.. simultaneously..
Just as the council began looking for ideas, the Participatory City Foundation, led by the inspiring Tessy Britton, approached it with a plan for an entirely different system, developed after nine years of research into how bridging networks form. Nothing like it had been attempted by a borough before. The council realised it was taking a risk. But it helped to fund a £7m, five-year experiment, called Every One, Every Day.
after 10 yr research.. let’s try a 1 yr experiment.. ie: short
Researching successful community projects across the world, the foundation discovered a set of common principles..t

Typically, they demand little time or commitment from local people, and no financial cost. They are close to people’s homes, open to everyone, and designed to attract talent rather than to meet particular needs.
They launched Every One, Every Day in November 2017, opening two shops(the first of five) on high streets in Barking and Dagenham. The shops don’t sell anything but are places where people meet, discuss ideas and launch projects. The scheme has also started opening “maker spaces”, equipped with laser cutters and other tools, sewing machines and working kitchens. These kinds of spaces are usually occupied by middle-class men but, so far, 90% of the participants here are women. The reason for the difference is simple: almost immediately, some of the residents drew a line on the floor,..t.. turning part of the space into an informal creche, where women take turns looking after the children. In doing so, they overcame one of the biggest barriers to new businesses and projects: affordable childcare.
lines in the city.. ie: city sketchup ness
the experiment has catalysed a remarkable number of projects set up spontaneously by residents..t
Local people have leapt on the opportunities the new system has created.
this is wonderful.. much better than what most of us are doing.. but we have the means for it to me – local people (everyone everywhere everyday) are heard.. and their daily curiosities are facil’d.. ie: cure ios city
There’s a long way to go. Four thousand of the borough’s 200,000 people have participated so far. But the rate of growth suggests it is likely to be transformative. The council told me the programme had the potential to reduce demand for social services as people’s mental and physical health improves.. t
imagine a means for 7b to leap
Perhaps it’s not the whole answer to our many troubles. But it looks to me like a bright light in a darkening world..t

2 months later.. luba emails me participatory site:
it does mention it and has relevance to your ideas). Thought it might interest you:http://www.participatorycity.org/I keep thinking about Dunbar’s number, though, and the limitations of larger contexts
tech as it could be..
All the research says that it is the participation itself which is impactful — and that’s what we’re finding, says Nat Defriend.
actually.. participation in the thing you can’t not do.. key.. otherwise.. just spinning wheels
begs curiosity (where’s my insatiable itch today) over decision making (ie: what should i participate in)
Defriend is keen to emphasise that each of the growing legion of Every One, Every Day projects are genuine peer-to-peer collaborations. “It’s not one resident donating their time to another who needs it — which would be the charity model — and it’s not a commercial transaction, for profit,” he says. “It’s a genuinely mutual endeavor, shared between the residents. And that’s why it works.”
great.. but unless starts w/in each person .. everyday.. it won’t keep on working.. so begs a mech to listen to every voice.. first thing.. every day.. as it could be..
find/follow everyone everyday:
