The ‘summer’ in London was ending, and just as it was looking like there wasn’t going to be a Positive Action Road Trip this year, until one of our longest members, Julita said ‘Hey, Andy. I want an Adventure, what’s going on? Lets Go!’ ..and so we did!
..thus the #ChasetheSun Road Trip 2016 was born (more or less an exact representation of what happened)
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
Here’s the route and itenary of the Focallocal Road Trip4 Connection.
It still needs a little collective magic to make it work and you can be a part of making it happen, do you;
have friends in a city between Lyon and Berlin that would like to run an event with us on the 2nd Aug?have friends we can contact to run events and projects in Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia or Bulgaria?know any beautiful beachside or lakeside towns, or mountain villages en-route that my life would be complete if i visit to work from mid-week?

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.
