“TO THE NEXT LEVEL”
CALL TO ACTION
"The Starfish and the Spider" is a book by Ori Brafman and Rod Beckstrom. It is about a "new" emergent organizational form, a form that certainly has application for Community Networks, grass roots community organizing, and empowered communities taking on sustainability. Here's a quote from the book:
[THIS IS A PERSONAL DRAFT OF MY VIEWS ON THE SUBJECT. JFB]WHAT WE ARE ASKING OF EACH OTHER, AND WHY?
Join PlacerSustain, renew your personal commitment to living in a way that creates a healthy community, identify yourself and your interests and values, share what you are learning with others, support our basic stewardship of the information and collaboration network, and work together with others to take action in pursuit of your own interests.
The following material are excerpts from Peter Block's Book, "Community:The Structure of Belonging." The book is full of principles and practices that center on people working together in Community to create a sustainable future. A transformation in how we view Citizenship is an important element of creating this future.
