Detroit: If not cars, then what?

Detroit: If not cars, then what? | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

"Everything you need, you already have..." "Look at the courage you already have..."  In Detroit, people are rebuilding their city, one person at a time, one block at a time, one community at a time, one industry at a time.


'Lemonade, Detroit'

The American Dream, Revised

The American Dream, Revised | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it
A new exhibit explores radical solutions for the nation's housing woes.

Saving the suburbs might mean starting essentially from scratch.

An exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art, "Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream," presents five architectural solutions to renew a depleted American suburbia. At its heart, the show is not just about architecture and design, but about blurring the traditional lines that separate public space from private space, owning from sharing, residential structures from business structures, and suburbs from cities.

“Change the dream,” reads a sign at the entrance of the show, “and you change the city.”

“Foreclosed” is the result of a months-long process in which teams made up of architects, designers, community activists, economists and others looked at creating innovative solutions to development in five disparate suburbs around the country. The sites have in common “a significant rate of foreclosure, and a considerable amount of publicly held land available for development.”

Gawad Kalinga: une stratégie pour éradiquer la pauvreté à partir de la base | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

Philippines. Quand l’ancien cadre de Procter & Gamble se lance dans l’entrepreneuriat social en 2003, le défi qu’il se propose de relever est démentiel : 20 ans pour éradiquer purement et simplement la pauvreté dans un pays - les Philippines -, qui compte plus de 30 millions de pauvres. (...) Après s'être immergé dans la vie des bidonvilles, Antonio Meloto a créé dans tout le pays ce qu’il appelle des « communautés villageoises ».

Chacune comprend une cinquantaine de maisons, qui deviennent à terme des villages autosuffisants et écologiquement responsables.

Au cœur du système : l’esprit d’entreprise, le partage de règles de vie communes et les concepts de « caring & sharing » : l’altruisme et la solidarité...

How to Map Assets & Expose Real Wealth for Shared Futures

How to Map Assets & Expose Real Wealth for Shared Futures | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

Harnessed fully, there are more talents and resources within any small group of passionate citizens than are actually needed to manifest deep social change. It is just a matter of how willing we are to step back and see things through a lens of strengths and possibilities, and how creatively we can bring our multitude of capabilities to light.
