As some of you may know we’ve started a new initiative in the lead up to LOTE4 to unearth the most interesting projects in Europe related to this years theme of Stewardship. The Case Study Adventures - in an effort to establish a better understanding and invite a broader community into the development of Living on the Edge several of us are travelling between different cities to meet with individuals and projects in order to compile case studies and interviews.
Together we plan to visit over 20 cities between now and October, including; Rome, Milano, Vienna, Stockholm, Leipzig, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Nottingham, Istanbul, Athens, Bucharest, Cluj, Budapest and Venice. In many of these cities we’re be hosting meetups, detailed on the schedule below.

More to follow. Get involved and add yours to the list?
If you would like to get involved by joining the adventure, you can do so by equipping yourself with a video camera and going out to interview your local initiatives and the most inspiring stewards in your city - just create a meetup by adding to this wiki and creating an event on Facebook.
Alternatively you can support the existing initiative in a number of ways:
- Introduce and connect us with existing projects on this list - we’re particularly keen to hear of projects taking place in Prague, Vienna, Leipzig, Amsterdam, Nottingham and Istanbul.
- Be the Steward of your city, by helping to host, suggest a location and invite people to the meetups that are happening in your city.
- Provide accommodation for those travelling between cities - just comment on this wiki.
This series of city meetups will be followed by next step in our adventure, Stewardship Summits online, in which we’ll be inviting specific groups together onto a hangout to discuss the key areas relating to stewardship. These will be taking place on 28th August, 11th September and 25th September - inviting participants internationally from our research and travel to discuss the core subjects of LOTE4.
