7 Days left: Free Hugs World Record in Distance. London – Edinburgh 2018.

I made it my mission in life to teach people how they can make the world around them a little friendlier, safer, and happier by using positive projects and activities to target societal issues, and so I seem to have talked myself into something a bit out there again.. Next Saturday, on the 7th July I begin the over 900 kilometre walk from London to Edinburgh, 20-30 km/day, carrying a fabulous free hugs flag created by Irene and creating a new world record for the World’s Longest Free Hugs Event in Terms of Distance to promote our platform focallocal.org re-launching

Change HOW? Andy at Focallocal on using Public Happiness to Change the World

 Andy speaking at the Change How? Festival on how we can use Public Happiness 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.

A Pause in the Road Trip4Connection (and time to build!)

 I’m trying something new! Writing letters is much more enjoyable than writing on a computer screen, and i often write to my friends around the World – so here’s a letter i wrote to you. I’d love your feedback on whether it works and you enjoy reading articles in this format :0)Some of you paying attention may have noticed that i flew back to London from driving around the World to show how we can all use Public Happiness Activities to tackle any and all social issues. Here’s this letter for you is to explain why i took a break, and where the Movement is right now.(click the photo to scroll and i hope you enjoy the read)

Time to start getting Public Happiness articles on here

Sorry for  the absence guys, i’ve been really busy building our Core Team – a crack team of  the most positive enthusiastic people ever, they are from all over the World, mostly because if that much positive energy were ever in a room together i think the whole building would stand up, put on a fake moustache and start doing the Can-Can!!!So lets start getting things moving here again 😀
