 +**HEAR Mapping and Networks for Solidarity and Campaigning** 
 + 
 +We have a practical outcome from the Networked City exploration. Drew Mackie and David Wilcox are working with four equalities networks, on a two-year programme funded by Big Lottery.  
 + 
 +As project leader Christine Goodall says, the aim is to "​co-produce with small and user-led equality organisations in London a system that uses digital tools to build and strengthen their networks, enable better connections for collaboration,​ campaigning and solidarity, and enhance their voice and influence"​.  
 + 
 +"The project will also have a key aim of sharing learning throughout the project, building a repository of resources that will be made widely accessible"​.

 + 
 +**Games, apps and maps for the Commons** 
 + 
 +We are developing the idea of "​Commons"​ as environments for conversation and collaboration,​ with games to enable the design and development through the use of maps, apps, stories and self-organising. We are building on earlier Living Lab games, and now have a prototype app through pro bono support from [[https://​www.foundersandcoders.com|Founders and Coders]] [[https://​www.networkedcity.london/​livinglab/​commons|More here]]. 
 + 
 +**Mapping the Commons** 
 + 
 +In Islington we been working with The Peel Institute on their [[http://​www.peelinstitute.org.uk/​connecting-clerkenwell| Connecting Clerkenwell programme]],​ and then on various forms of mapping to display local heritage. You can see a Google Earth flyerover, Story Maps and a gallery, with 360 photos and video on [[https://​clerkenwell.commons.london|this demonstration site]]. 
 + 
 +**Hub and platform model for the Commons** 
 + 
 +Our work in Clerkenwell,​ and before that with the [[https://​twcp.org.uk/​|Thames Ward Community Project]] in Barking, provided inspiration for for a model of mapping, communications and storytelling to support local action. [[https://​quip.com/​xUOwAaAlFBXP|The draft model is here]]. 
 + 
 +**People Power Platform** 
 + 
 +David Wilcox is a part of a group that has met twice to discuss models for civil society infrastructure,​ following the [[https://​civilsocietyfutures.org/​pact/​|Civil Societies Future report]]. As [[http://​bit.ly/​2VoElDH|I blogged here in January]] Steve Wyler proposed the idea of a People Power Grid, which chimes with our Networked City ideas. In subsequent discussion Platform was favoured more than grid. There'​s scope for joining these ideas up with last year's [[https://​smk.org.uk/​social-power-report/​|Social Power Report]] from the Sheila McKecknie Foundation, and the [[http://​bit.ly/​2UpZgVW|Compass 45°change pamphlet]].
