Wh00p Wh00p! Some exciting news from Rustavi!

After a very successful workshop with our community facilitated by the amazing PSDA (the gov's innovation lab) in the beginning of this month, we're super excited to support several community members in coloring the pavements of Rustavi's park!

Liberals, Conservatives and the Office Refrigerator

Not all Liberal and Conservative is political.  The terms also apply to how you look at your material surroundings.   And it also is a way to look at how people relate to each other as work mates and house mates.  Do you think the well being of the group is best served in a given moment by pointing out problems as you see them or letting them go?   I think of each person with a place on a continuum of liberal and conservative both in the material and the mental realm.  And you can be liberal in one way and conservative in another.

We are proud to announce that Edgeryders has signed a contract with the World Bank Group. They think that young people in MENA region could use a space to help each other boostrapping their lives and work. They were thinking about peer-to-peer support as an operations mode. They were thinking about social innovation as a space to expand into. In short, they were thinking about something that looks a lot like Edgeryders itself, or at least shares its key values.

I've only been on this project for 1 month, and already the speed in which things are happening is amazing. As georgia's community builder, I am building a community of do'ers in the industrial town Rustavi, a few kilometers out from Georgia's capital city Tbilisi. 

When you live with your co-workers

But not just any co-workers.  Lots of people live together who all work for some company. But those are situations where you can go up to your room and shut the door whenever you want.  I mean people with whom you live and work toward commonly held goals employing commonly held values.

My first month as an OpenCare Community Fellow

In April I received the happy news that I was selected as an OpenCare Community Fellow by SCimPULSE Foundation and Edgeryders.

Ironically, in the month that marked the start of the fellowship, I was struck by several illnesses. As a Belgian citizen, I can get the best care for next to zero financial cost for myself. Though, what is mainly just a nuisance for me, can be dramatic for those in more precarious situations. Those here outside the healthcare system and those in areas with weaker or no social security.

No tasks have been added to this group.

The Bible of Christian Artifacts

Noemi's picture

“The Bible of Christian Artifacts” is one such project that promised to “buy up a bunch of extraordinarily rare and expensive artifacts described in the Bible” as well as “everyday Christian icons and relics.” Christians and treasure hunters alike have flocked to the Kickstarter page, which has migrated to their new website (http://www.christianartifacts.com), to keep up with the online traffic. 

wiki to map needs, clients & existing orgs doing what we can do?

K's picture

In the comment to this post, we can list some examples of already existing orgs which are doing things we can do (better). Institutions and bigger orgs do outsource their stuff and also buy services. Whether they need these services, or whether these institutions should exist in the first place is not important for this wiki. Lets be blunt for a start, and analyse later (whether we want to partner with them or exterminate them).
