A crowd-sourced co-production fling
Using the lockdown time to get better at protecting yourself, loved ones, businesses and communities?
What are YOU doing?
What do you want
others to do?
A space to share, test, promote and amplify ideas
We all know that while lockdowns are needed at moment that they ‘suck’ for many reasons:
So the challenge here is identifying and actioning behaviours and interventions that could make lockdowns history.
‘Don’t screw it up’ Appeal from colleague in France
Please, please, please, the first lockdown didn’t work, and we all know why! And we all know we are heading for another lockdown! (and YES, nobody wants to admit that yet) Let’s not screw up this time around. Going forward from this point, if we do not all work as one, protecting ourselves and at the same time protecting everyone we have to come into closer contact with, the virus will run rings round us yet again.
What are you doing ?
What do you want others to do ?
In the end, human nature doesn’t like to be told, what to do or not to do.
Engaging people to become part of the solution, is not only about participation but also empowering them. We need people to want to protect themselves and others out of their free will. COVID19 action abstainers and deniers are a threat to themselves and everyone’s health and safety.
