a unique way of breaking down barriers and inviting people in to share in culturally specific issues in a way that is centred around celebrating the authors creativity, and an innovative method of helping others to see issues from another point of view, largely positive all-inclusive nature of the sub, to me, makes these treasures of the internet

We chose the central train station (Lyon Gare Partie-Deux) in Lyon, France as a place that needed brightening up for the day – a place where lots of people would be, and one where lots are rushing around
Katerina’s idea to try Take a Smile outside the Immigration Office in Barcelona was a spark of genius! Many people came out of that building looking fed up, and we lifted their spirits by inviting them to take a smile. I’m sure there were also many who had recently arrived in the country, and its a lovely thought that we helped shape their first impressions in a positive way
It takes less than 5 mins to set up a Positive Action Activity, and less than 5 seconds to add some Positive Action into your day, so why does nearly everyone i meet say they are too busy? this is the biggest challenge we face at Focallocal

Focallocal is a great project! Its so simple and i think that’s why it works and helps to connect people. We all live on the same planet, but in our cities and neighborhoods we don’t communicate or collaborate as one anymore; we forgot how much power people have when they get together – The power to build better world. To create a global connection we must start from local communities. We have forgotten that in a community we can share many things, skills, ideas, problems and solutions, and also happiness.
