#HelloNeighbour wants to foster inclusion in your local community and government & inclusion that connects globally. We aim for integration without separation. We all know 'Hello World', a test message, traditionally used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language, 'proof of concept'. #HelloNeighbour rolls with that spirit. 'Be inspired' showcases case studies, community work, local policy, urban planning. 'Do dialogue' provide toolkit & guide, stencils for download. Share

Why do you want to be OpenIDEO's Visual and User Experience Designer?

As Visual and UX designer I aim to create enriching and delightful experiences and encourage meaningful interactivities, that are viable and true to our daily experiences.

What did you learn when developing the deliverables in response to the design brief?

My three key learnings: I’ve learnt that inclusion has many faces. I’ve learnt that fellow submissions are very interesting and varied from spot on inspiring to not answering the brief. I’ve learnt that facilitating dialogue at various ‘stakeholder’ levels and at different scales is key to shaping good connections that are key to quality.

I loved how you focus on neighbors and their relationship.

I like the idea of starting with your local community and local government. I think practicing inclusion starts with taking small actions with people and institutions proximal to us.

Thank you for sharing your thought commenting here - Much appreciate. #HelloNeighbour (smile)
Excellent and very strong point to start practising inclusion in your local context, with your community and government. And I wonder how we can best encourage locally engaged initiatives, business, industry, government, that are active in their local context and conscious in their global connection and impact, to share adaptive methods and best practise.
