Amplify Local Activity


#1

Unconference notes: “Amplify Local Activity”
Getting people involved in relative small areas.

Identified barriers:

  • Lack of tech/data and people
  • False commitment
  • Lack of genuine interests
  • Lack of sustainability

Rural areas get ignored easily, since they are less relevant, citizen role undervalued. No clear responsibility.
Use case: areal photography is missing in certain rural areas. We need the stuff.

  1. What are you trying to achieve/what outcome do you want?
  2. What are the other communities to amplify local activities?

Going back to action plan: define issue, find a common problem/solution. Identify trans-local network.

  • Data as a means, not an end.
  • Then you start involving other (government) stakeholders…
  • Then articulate theory of change…
  • Standards – sustainablility…
  • Stakeholder mapping – defining access and dependencies…
  • Workshop to test prototypes…
  • Pivot/improve local activity – value proposition…
