"Thriving Together" kit & framework

"Thriving Together is a specific event based on a framework (rules, brand, adv, mobile/website, service). Anyone (schools, associations, libraries, hospitals, private people) cna organize an promote it. It could be an instant event or a recurrent one: you must accept the rules of the TT, specify the event activities (read aloud, toy sharing, simphonic ecc) linked to "animated objects" (books, toys, musical instruments ecc) which will be used to connect the participants and to work on a sense of community and game sharing among the kids and the parents involved.

We want to create a framework (brand, rules, adv, mobile/website, service) for schools, associations, libraries, hospitals, private people that want to open a “THRIVING TOGETHER” point. It could be an instant event or a recurrent one. You must accept the rules of the TT, specify the event activities (read aloud, toy sharing, simphonic ecc) linked to "animated objects" (books, toys, musical instruments ecc) which will be used to connect the participants and to work on a sense of community and game sharing among the kids and the parents involved. Facilitators (coming from different backgrounds and with the opportunity to gain points for school or university ranking) will moderate and welcome the families playing an important role within the TT point. The “Thrive Together” initiative will open a open platform where any organization can open a profile in order to communicate new events into a common calendar.

Who will benefit from this idea and where are they located?

This idea helps parents in low-income communities providing a space for playing-gaming-recreational interaction. During an event parents can find books, illustrated magazines, toys and instruments to play with their children and other parents which can be a source of useful informations. It’s an opportunity to be deeply connected in a local community, involving children to extra school activities without spending money and create community among parents who usually are not enabled to feel in a “comfort position”. Our starting point are big cities suburbs.

How could you test this idea in a quick and low-cost way right now?

- Produce an ad (poster) and check how many people ask for details - Write the TT guidelines and ask for feedback - Organize the first TT event

What kind of help would you need to make your idea real?

- Feedback from the OpenIDEO community - Expert advice

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

  • Yes. I am looking for partners that might be interested in taking this idea forward in their communities.

Hi Guy,

thanks for your feedback. I've just updated the attached files with a user journey

Interesting stuff, Raffaele! Perhaps you might consider helping people better grasp how this idea could play out by describing some example scenarios which describe user journeys through some of the proposed activities you've outlined. Check this example: http://www.openideo.com/open/e-waste/concepting/neighbourhood-e-waste-champion/ where a few simple scenarios were created in an attempt to explain the goodness on the idea in a human-centered way.
