I came over a video which intrigued me plus left a comment. The comment can do with a wise sub-edits, yet the point was to really DO (write) anything, instead of only THINK regarding it. Get it out plus see where it goes, we not learn you are somewhat more coherent upcoming time: explore, experience, grow/learn.
That movie is here, if you need to take a look, or leave a comment.
Here’s my comment
Great, how do I engage with this movie, this narrative between 2 persons inside a glass-walled workplace inside London speaking of individuals creating water projects function a some 1000 miles away, plus donors, where they are, that are funding these projects.
I think the model is of the project getting/giving funding for equipment/maintenance/initial help, with intention of these projects becoming self-sufficient – and just how to create this a sustainable model for water or any alternative project, nearby or international, run by hub organisations.
I look out the window of my flat inside central London, a couple of vehicles drive gradually down the street; 1 vehicle is a Porsche, costing about £35,000, the alternative is a 4×4 possibly about the same expense. Ummm, today when just they might be persuaded to re-think their values; employ bicycles, walk more, possibly reside a easier house lifetime, perhaps utilize a few of their excessive incomes inside assisting persons less lucky than themselves?
I drift away here … possibly, a should see a direct correlation between what exactly is provided and just how which money is selected, a transparency (social media / socially mediated) of providing .. plus possibly then becoming associated inside alternative ways; from networks of participation, networks of offering, networks of help. Seeing how ‘their’ revenue could function for the advantage of individuals instead of than the detriment of individuals (the pricey, quick vehicle adds to polluting the ambiance, injuring pedestrians, utilizing up valuable resources).
The Question Is.
How to persuade the individual that is going to purchase a Porsche to really employ a few of which cash to purchase a bike or 2, plus utilize the rest of the funds to aid individuals with water plus sanitation inside far away places?
The Answers (selling the idea) functions inside different methods about different levels:
• relationships is accumulated between (ordinary) individuals, amongst the donor (almost Porsche owner) as well as the doer (villager, digger, facilitator, documenter, co-ordinator). Like any advantageous story, these ‘characters’ have names, items happen, existence is shared.
• these relationships could manifest themselves from web networks; images, movie, composing.
• accountability: how cash was utilized, inside a general means.
• transparency: open relationships utilizing easy tools (at when digital camera, wifi phone/camera, nearby wifi networks, Flickr/Twitter/Blogger)
• help (learning) by the hubs; developing self-sufficiency, balanced relationships, how to include others inside a positive means + wider issues of infrastructure and just how this develops beyond localized community plus value. This really is two-way (question-driven, particular, connected to practice) understanding environment, the hub organisation facilitates the processes.
So revenue is the First stage of participation, the initially section inside the story, from there the ‘donor’ may become concerned with all the doer(s) inside different techniques.
The hub (akvo-type) organisations become the facilitators for these processes to happen plus grow.
In impact this really is regarding creating a transparent plus represented understanding environment which individuals will include themselves inside, becoming characters inside, as well as the ‘story’ is facilitated by the hubs. The donors as well as the doers benefit by sharing their stories, plus inside other techniques.
Time for lunch, along with a glass of water.
The nomads theme this week is : Growth
• the task of improving inside bodily size
• anything which has grown or is growing
… population development, financial development, development of vegetation, development of localized companies, development about nose, hyperbolic development, sustainable development (oxymoron?)
