hi all - really interesting idea Mathieu. Just in response to Dina's suggestion of space, thought I'd post up a really successfull project in the UK called Somewhere_to as it might spark some ideas and inspiration about non-monetary support:
somewhereto_ is a service that helps young people access space. Since June 2010, somewhereto_ has unlocked over 380,000 sq ft of space (both physical and digital) across the UK which was previously empty or underused (the rent value of which if leveraged would exceed £2m). We have also negotiated over 4,000 direct matches between spaces and young people in need of space, engaged with thousands of young people and reached millions through high-profile activity around space.
Hey Bradley - I just came across this collaborative art project linked to another OI concept. I've never heard of it before (if you're from the US you may have??) but it's very cool and is a great example of everyday people responding to missions or assignments.
