Updates from the Team call just now:
@kuba_svehla told people from his neighborhood about the project - biomarket and open space where he met about 5 people, sat for a coffee in the afternoon and spoke about their participation. Kuba demonstrated how edgeryders works showing the website. They are supposed to meet again this Saturday.
What I really like: Kuba prepared a manual for signing up and collaborating on the platform. Way to go!
@zalesjan: he’s passionate about the climate movement, so now meeting a lot of people. He approaches them by asking to interview them, but it’s a little too personal too soon. But the social dynamics are positive, and there is a platform building movement for climate in the country…
What I really like: that if Jan is well embedded in this community, it should be natural to offer Wellbeing in Europe as an online forum where the movement and how people learn and mobilize can be shared internationally
Natalia: is working with Aska to organise 3 workshops in 1 event: they are now deciding on the exact topics and will post about it.
From Serbia: the event is focused on bringing together a mix of entrepreneurial people with interesting content and projects to share, and a group that is less active and has more spare energy to engage in a collective project.
Jasen and Noemi are in the process of recruiting a Serbian community member to help @jasen_lakic with onsite organisation.
My humble advice to you all:
- reach out to more people at a higher speed. Allocate more time and thinking how it can work - 10-15hrs a week minimum.
- for Jan: be a community reporter and start yourself with publishing stories about what is happening. Then invite people you know to come in and respond
- for Kuba: send people you meet interesting stories for them, it’s an easier way to contribute by commenting than contribute by posting a full story.
- put communications about your event online. While you interview people individually, you also need to do outreach and help people to find you! You alone will not be able to personally meet 40 people, but if those 5 you met already can share the invitation to the event with others, then you have higher chances to reach people who are interested to participate.
