Community Networks In The Digital Age

  1. 1. The Reinvention of Social Housing 3: Community Networks in The Digital Age
  2. 2. Can close-knit, physical communities even exist anymore - or are people migrating more and more to digital by default with each generation? How can we shift from service provider to community builders? Communities are the primary inventors in a democracy. Citizens are the producers of the future - @CormacRussell Questions we asked We hear a lot about 'Government as a platform' but what would happen if we thought of our organisations in the same way? What if we enabled people to reclaim communities spaces with our organisations providing the digital platforms that link health housing care and other vital services?
  3. 3. Our thoughts The proliferation of apps , tenant portals and websites is creating a complex digital landscape. Are we rebuilding our physical silos in the digital space? We need a new network of spaces with community builders who act as connectors and enablers . A role that facilitates community facilitators. Could these be enhanced with digital assistants or navigators to help people through the complex web of public services?
  4. 4. Model One: Community Builder Spaces A space on every street corner - available to the whole community. Provides space, skills and tools the local community wants. A new network established to link places designed to inspire. A vehicle for both digital inclusion, social inclusion and creativity.
  5. 5. Model Two: Digital Navigator There are plenty of community building tools, readily available. But many of these are monetized somehow, so the code is not open source and is difficult to integrate with another product. We could provide one such app, or simply an open source ‘navigator’ that helps people find the right services for them. This virtual navigator would be complemented by real-life support in Community Builder Spaces.
  6. 6. Model Three: Community Reward Reward those individuals who share their skills and resources with the community with ‘credits’ or a cryptocurrency like bitcoin Credits can be used in exchange for other services or goods at certain shops Uses transactional reward as a gateway for change This also fits with idea of housing and care credits discussed in session two
