free and open source software and mass co-production of things like wikipedia has shown that people together can do amazing things.
Business West's Bristol 2050 consulted business leaders from across the City. A group of people associated with Occupy Bristol are starting a rival People’s Bristol 2050, which involves all the communities in Bristol, not just the business leaders. The people of Bristol and the surrounding area have the knowledge, ingenuity and skills to come up with a far greater plan, and start putting it into action. We also think the 40 year timescale frees people to think more imaginatively, and to propose creative and hopeful futures. Occupy Bristol envisage the project including,Open Space meetings, online discussions and information sharing, events in community centres and more. The first event will be an Open Space meeting at the Trinity Centre, Saturday 21 Jan 2pm-4pm (upstairs hall). The hope is to bring interested people together to talk about sensible ideas and plans and kick start initiatives, both big and small.
If you’re interested, please come along. Bring your thoughts, ideas and enthusiasm and, above all, a willingness to listen to others. Full Article
