We need to Connect, and Focallocal is a Great Project – by Dominika

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.

Road Trip: The Prologue

Why would we ever want to jump into a van and drive around Europe meeting the most positive and pro-active people in every city, and sharing our happiness with the people on the streets in each city to brighten their day??? well, that’s a good question. i’ve had a go at answering it here

Amazing bargains, from massages to gigs in your living room, painting and climbing weekends + support the Focallocal project!

Our community has come together to show their support the Focallocal project, and their kind and generous offerings have been astonishing and really creative!

This may be the only chance you will EVER have to have a professional band play a gig in your living room! when else will you get yourself a didgeridoo sound wave massage? or grab a professional photo shoot for a fraction of the normal price Or what about a rock climbing weekend in Wales?!? (as i write you could get both for £5!!!)

Kindness Auction, BBQ and Van Painting – and a big thank you!!

Success!! This event was a different than any we’ve run before because i have just left my job counselling troubled youth (the best job i’ve had for ages), bought a big van and begun living in it. I’ve done this because i have to explore whether Focallocal, the project i started can make a difference to the World. Huge thanks to everyone it was a fabulous day!!!

International Pillow Fight Day London 2014

Thank you to all who came and helped create another HUGE celebration of being alive and a wonderful experience for everyone there! We all filled the city full of smiles and goodwill to all! (expect the authorities who are convinced that people shouldn’t be allowed to come together and have fun without permits, permission and giving them money). I was dashing around with my GoPro against my chin (apparently it helps stabilise the video.. or i’ve been cruelly mislead and will spend the next few months looking stupid ;), perhaps you saw me?
