Our Society was an informal online initiative during 2011 to help people share ideas about local action. This ideas platform was one activity.

I suggest we ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Build a library of standard stuff we all ask about and need to know

    We often get asked technical questions about how to use Twitter or set up a Facebook page. Communities may get asked about Volunteer Policies or need standard H&S training. Create a reference library and don't reinvent the wheel!

    • Create online noticeboards as hubs for community ideas

      Show community groups, networks, individuals how to use a service like wallwisher to make a free online open-access pin-board for their area. This is a great way to publicise what you are doing/thinking/planning, and for others to see at a glance everything that's happening around them.

      • build an online user-created resource hub: research, toolkits and more

        Why keep reinventing the wheel? We all know of useful resources, toolkits, and research on community action. Create a free online library where people can share, upload and download resources.

          There are 8,000+ Parish & Town Councils across England, that can 'precept' (tax)....they should be encouraged to do so in order to 'trigger' Big Soc type ventures
