how can we ‘positively’ halt the flood of fake news? new project!

It’s as if most bloggers, media and news sites have reached a point where they’ve realised there really is no down-side in misrepresenting, or simply inventing facts to support their stories. If it agrees with their beliefs most readers will share it anyway, and those who do call it out only increases the attention they get ..and of course in turn their profits…

Hack Homelessness and Happiness – February 4th and 5th 2017

We’ve been working on this resource map for 1.5 years now and it’s close to launch. This Hack-Day is to finally finish it, and promote it so it can begin helping those on the streets all around the World.

The map is called the ‘Brighter Tomorrow’s Map’ and it lists all the resources available to people who are living on the streets, with a focus on reducing the barrier between the public who want to do something to help, and those who are living on the streets around the World.

Focallocal is gathering local people to make where they live Beautiful! #guerillaurbanbeautication

Below are some photo’s of a horribly neglected area in the Maiden Lane estate, in Camden London.The story i heard is that the council disputes who is responsible for the area, and so its been left as a dump for close to 30 years.We’re bringing local people together to take ownership for their community, by creating beautiful gardens and landscape to create a lovely walk to school for all the families and children who regularly use the path, and to make the local area a more pleasant place to live. I’m sure those kids would have a nicer start to the day if their walk to school involved a magical oasis of creativity and nature ..than through this horrible eye-sore.Send us an email if you’d like to know more, join in, or help us contacting local businesses to gather materials, seeds and plants.Beautification begins on the 26th and 27th of September

Change HOW? Andy at Focallocal on using Positive Social Action to Change the World

 Andy speaking at the Change How? Festival on how we can use Positive Social Action to Change the World. The Change How Festival was for innovative ideas to progressively change politics, and bring it back to the people. Focallocal is deliberately and entirely non-political, so that we can remain open for everyone to join our Movement and community, regardless of their points of view. We were invited to speak because our ‘Do It Yourself’ culture is all about bringing people together to create change themselves in the World around them, and empowering people in that way does impact the World of politics.
