Create treasure hunts to help people map groups and assets in a fun & inclusive way

What does Our Society look in your community? Difficult to say unless you go out and see what people & groups are involved in the community, what activities there are. How can we make community mapping more exciting & more inclusive - treasure hunts can enable mapping the community & experiencing the activities you're mapping at the same time.

        Agree with David W it should be linked with the "create local maps idea". Oh and do bore me with QR codes as I'd like to establish one for Hartlebury!

        The open buildings day is fab, even if all at the same time and not spread out. I'm curious...are Anneka Rice style jumpsuits are required...?

        Jon, please do tell. Am doing treasure hunt in May and July and would be keen to test out, as well as for wider OurSociety of course :)

        I've done this, very successfully in East Leeds. Would it bore the pants of people if I talked about the potential for QR codes [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_Code] on laminated bits of card that hyperlink real places to information? Only really viable for smartphone users in ready mapped areas though.

        4square for community orgs anyone?

        David, I think it could be a good way to create local maps. I haven't included any ideas on how social technology could link in with this, but am sure u could use SMS & twitter to collaborate. Yes Toby, we do need cheering up :)

        i particularly like the 'fun' aspect of this idea. A sense of fun is always a good thing, but at the moment we all need a little cheering up :-)
