Welcome to Collaborate, the Social Spaces community blog. Collaborate incorporates over 1,000 Thriving Too blog posts that we have written over the last 4 1/2 years, and continues to aim shamelessly to prove the case for optimism by revealing and promoting the explosion in positive actions from around the world. This blog is also used to question, think out loud, stimulate conversation, tentatively share early ideas ... and wrestle publicly together with the complex ideas and challenges that are shaping the future.
The Social Spaces project aims to transform society at community level through surfacing new emergent knowledge, using a transdisciplinary approach to analyse and understand that knowledge, and developing innovative approaches to spread these new ideas and methods.
As part of her undergraduate project Douceurs, post graduate service designer Lauren Currie (a.k.a RedJotter) took a dozen red balloons to a park in Edinburgh and asked people she met to tie them to their favourite thing. How beautiful!
