Community Thrivability
“Thrivability... the designer's role... pays attention to... details of life hidden in the landscape... The invisible frontiers... where modernity has failed to make good on its promises... the wanderer around invisible peripheries, the witness and facilitator of emergent states.”
- "Design" by Joanna Guldi, Harvard Society of Fellows

Community Thrivability Wikitecture [wiki+architecture] "...a diverse spectrum of individuals interested in exploring the potential of applying an Open Source paradigm to the design and production of both real and virtual architecture and urban planning... conducting ‘Wikitecture’ experiments to work out the exact procedures and protocols necessary to harness a group’s collective intelligence in designing architecture... in much the same way Wikipedia enables a loose, self-organizing network of contributors to collaborate on content creation, the Studio Wikitecture group has been using these experiments to work out the manner by which a group of geographical disperse individuals can come together to share ideas, edit the contributions of others, and to vote on the success or failure of proposed design iterations..."

Community Thrivability The American Journal of Public Health recently published a study (field action report) featuring Metamedia collaborator, Mark Lakeman of City Repair Project.
"The Intersection of Urban Planning, Art, and Public Health: The Sunnyside Piazza."

A Quote from the Abstract:
"...In an attempt to invigorate neighborhood stewardship, the community organized and created a public gathering place; together, they painted a gigantic sunflower in the middle of an intersection and installed several interactive art features. As a result of these collective actions of "place-making," social capital has increased, thus revitalizing the community, and expanded social networks among residents have stimulated a sense of well-being..."

Community Thrivability Come support this event and Help... Heal The Ocean!
The ocean can no longer be used as a dump!

Course of Action: instead of lobbying the government for action on ocean-pollution issues, we study the problem ourselves and recommend practical solutions. We undertake scientific studies to identify sources of pollution - from leaking sewer pipes, offshore sewage disposal, leaking coastal landfills or septic systems.

They test for viruses in the ocean, creeks and groundwater to determine if human sources of pollution are present, and what are the likely sources. In cooperation with Santa Barbara County, Heal the Ocean pioneered both the use of environmental DNA testing and virus testing in the local area.

Community Thrivability UPDATE: TRYON LIFE COMMUNITY FARM HAS BEEN SAVED! Portland is a future that continues to nourish innovation and livability. Nestled into Tryon Creek State Park in S.W. Portland is the intersection of rural, urban and wild. An Open Commons demonstrates how multiple communities can efficiently live, work, and play in urban density while learning to heal the land, cooperate with each other and change the world.

On this rare landscape, people are coming together to teach and learn the skills needed to ensure a sustainable future city. Tryon Life Community Farm is seven acres, surrounded by 670 acres of state park. Rolling wooded meadows. Fruit trees, grape vines, vegetable gardens, a bonsai nursery...

Our organization does this through four branches of focus,
education, restoration of degraded lands, direct action, and
documentation of those projects and other projects for positive change.

Community Thrivability Nanoletters reports, "a solar cell made with spinach has been developed that promises electronic devices incorporating photosynthesis, the highly efficient process plants use to produce energy from sunlight....Initial tests showed that the rudimentary device could convert 12 percent of the light it absorbed into an electrical charge, and researchers think they can increase that output to 20 percent by thickening the amount of biological material on the substrate."
