[Draft] Help create the communication plan for Future Makers!

Future Makers is a collaboratively produced book of case studies [add brief summary of what case studies are about here] with analysis and graphics. The book will provide activists and social innovators an opportunity to discover and draw inspiration from what people in similar situations are doing in different parts of the world, and exchange methods. In the book we collaboratively produce 70 case studies from Armenia, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Morocco, Nepal and Ukraine. 

Our hypothesis is that networked collaboration could help us all achieve our objectives, and achieve impact at scale, by enabling us to make better use of our limited time and small resources. In Future Makers we aim to answer, in a scientifically rigorous way, how and when is there a direct benefit to collaboration for people who are already very busy driving their own projects? 

Based on first-hand experiences of people driving inspiring projects outside the mainstream in seven countries, this book will present the blueprint for what an attractive and sustainable mutual-support program for activists and social innovators could look like in practice, locally and transnationally.

In this task you participate in building communication and outreach efforts around the Future Makers campaign in Armenia, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Morocco, Nepal, Ukraine…and on the Internet at large. Together we imagine and test creative ways of using our collective online presence to draw high quality contributions to the book and turn each chapter into a massive online conversation.

What's in it for you? 

Good for you: You get to be part of building a new kind of global communications machine to draw attention and support towards grassroots projects driven by passionate people. By driving it, you make sure you have access to it for your own projects while contributing towards us all getting smarter and more resilient together.

Good for everyone: a) Discovering what interesting projects and people are near you, how they/we are working. b) Identifying concrete ways how we can get mutual benefit from one another. c) Whatever you come up with :slight_smile:

I suggest a bi-weekly newsletter, and less daily status updates. That seems to much!

I’d add sharing raw notes on an ongoing basis.
