It would be great to launch an awareness campaign for a coordinated action all the other fans can take which drowns out the racism in football, showing solidarity and support for the player(s) being targeted, and belittling the behaviour of problem fans. What are your suggestions?
I’m not much of a social media type, so if you want to come along click subscribe on youtube, this vid is pretty much just for you. I’ll try to give a feel of the trip by creating a short video series.
After that long, panic stricken 1st day and the lonely night still sending out messages for people to come help, things began getting smoother. We began coasting. Each of us had out spells of thinking we should stop and drop out on that last day, but the other two and supporters were always there as we neared the end, and mostly it began going a lot easier. Some might call it dastardly, but i hadn’t told my hug partners that the previous world record was 26 hours, to help them avoid clock watching – and they hadn’t checked it. We’d already broken it by 5 hours when i decided it was time and told them.
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
I was talking to an old friend the other day, he was complaining at me for not having a house, stable job, wife, kids, etc. My explanation why seemed to satisfy him, and so I thought some of you guys might find it interesting as well.
Most nations are no closer to solving involuntary homelessness than they were in the 60’s. A connected community solves homelessness on its own, and so a few years back i decided to apply the Focallocal model and see whether we could bring people together to tackle the issue ourselves.
The new website and app are designed to put you, our members, at the centre of our action and decision making. We need strong and clear foundations to keep focused on the original mission and vision to create a friendlier, safer and happier world.. I hope these are good enough, i’d love your feedback x
Mission: Write to your positive friends and invite them to join us for our next International Public Happiness Activity. Our record is 16 towns, villages and cities in 2016. With your help we can beat it this year!
In February we received an email from WhatsappTV asking if we could host an Eye Contact Gathering for them to film and air on Sky One. As a great opportunity to introduce the idea to more people around the world i naturally agreed. Watch it here!
