Just when we think there’s no way we could love ioby more, they go and do something like co-authoring the “Recipes for Change” toolkit with Places For All.
This Saturday we went to the “Recipes for Change” toolkit workshop at the Amplify Creative Communities Exhibition, where we tested out the new toolkit with its designers. If you are organizing projects in your community, this toolkit is a powerful way to learn some time-tested lessons for implementing change.
“Recipes for Change” is based on the very good observation that people living and working in a community are it’s real experts. Nobody knows better than you what’s best for your community, and nobody is better equipped than you to make your community a greener, greater place. And so the toolkit – which will be available both online and in print – exists as a vehicle for sharing expertise. It’s full of patterns for fundraising, volunteer rallying, success stories from other project leaders, and it’s color-coordinated. And as an open platform, it’s been designed to expand with new solutions as they come in. To get a glimpse of what it will look like, click here: http://bit.ly/v8XDa9
Disappointed you missed the event? Don’t fret—the exhibition will be up until November 20th! There’s still time! And check ioby’s page periodically for announcements regarding the toolkit! If you have further questions, consider posing them to agrowculture, Adopt Your Local Bodega, or Bike Lanes in Southwest Williamsburg! They were all at the event, and they’re completely charming people who’d love your help.
Thanks again to ioby, Places for All, Parsons DESIS Lab, and everyone who came out for a great day!
