Eno Challenge "Campfire Life style product range "

I am just about to try and collate an idea that came into my head.

I have spent a lot of time thinking. I startedmoving thought into written word on the fledgling Campfire site possibly over 4 years ago when the site was in beta stage. It was something completely new to me but in no way did it feel alien or unnatural doing it. This I think is my 100th post. 

So enough introduction. This is what I envisage:

Monbiot has plan to revolutionise housing

At his talk in Bristol on Thursday, columnist and eco activist George Monbiot served warning of a major new initiative he is involved in which will make housing much more affordable.

He said that the report he is currently working on details "how we can make housing much, much cheaper, how we curb the power of the landlords, how we can actually make even buying houses much more affordable, bring it down to 30% of current costs. We have some exciting proposals coming"

"Crate Digging "(10/6/2018

It's the walking past the endless stalls of Snyde designer sun glasses, bits of and whole bicycles. De lo vegetables, mobile phone accessories, industrial power drills and diamond sanding disks the random items of used clothing liberated from municipal council cloths dumps, sold from the back of white vans owned by Balkan chancers. Hand crocheted boob tubes and sun loungers Then there they are!   

The Homeric Games

Each design challenge is framed as a heroic endeavour. The first Homeric, 'We built a temple' aka 'What can hope build?', starting by building a temple in virtual reality. 

Why? To harness the power of the crowd and prove we can indeed come together to create something considered impossible. The timeline:

Celebrating the World

Celebrating the World is an opportunity to share your discoveries, experiences, trustworthy resources and recommendations of the named country or town .... chosen monthly at random, join us on a virtual journey x

 

How it works ....

Each month my 3 children spin the globe and pick a destination. 

I will pop it onto the Campfire   Space for others to join in. 

We then take bits of time out to discover something about that area - over the month covering : Common facts, food, music, art, traditions, habitat, landmarks, wildlife

They own the land, they made the poor door

A recent article by Ben Chu, published in the Independent, offered an excellent explanation of the facts about the proposed use of flats at the exclusive £2bn Kensington Row development to rehouse tenants from Grenfell Tower. Of course, these flats were always intended to be social housing - they were part of the planning agreement between the developer the local authority and this is common practice.

Campfire Curiosity Series

The intro i think explains this project fairly concisely (which is rare for me). It is a space for you to connect with a simple pondering, join the conversation by sharing your experiences or understanding so far and be open to growing it further, maybe in entirely new directions - It is, i feel, what Campfire is all about  - The exploration of ideas, application of new directions and finding the people to create the change we dare to envisage.
