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

O'Dwyer, Rachel. “That was when, in February of 2007, someone mentioned the word 'thrivability' to me, and I knew I found the term that described what I wanted to create in the world. At that time, according to google searches then, there were only 2 people talking about it, one of which set me on my path.” P2P Foundation.
