Everyone cares about their local area. Sometimes it's wanting to increase quality of life through the creation of a nice relaxing green space, or somewhere for the kids to play. Sometimes it's for economic reasons - transforming a drab high street into a place that people want to visit is good for business.
We'd all like to make improvements. But with councils out of cash, we need a new way of getting things done. The great thing about Spacehive is that anyone can put forward project ideas and anyone can fund them.
Spacehive is a platform that helps catalyze such community initiatives by connecting different parties and getting them all working together:
- Local people with brilliant ideas - like creating relaxing green spaces, shiny new sports facilities, or giving the high street a makeover.
- Designers with imaginative plans that they think communities will like.
- Public bodies looking for ways of funding capital projects.
- Businesses and brands keen to leave a tangible community legacy.
