Greetings All: I snipped this from another email message i received elsewhere. I find this a useful conceptualization and decided to share it. > >I have been thinking of a progression of relationships for a "Neighborhood >to Nation" effort. The first level, common in some places I've lived and >absent in others, is "familiarity" - you know your neighbors' names and >maybe a little more, like what they do for a living. The next level would >be "sharing" - from sugar to concerns, maybe even babysitting. The next >level would be "creation" - neighbors make things together. Could be >gardens or community projects of some kind, such as our atlas. >The next level >would be "governance", which to me would include a recognition that all >issues no matter how global both begin and end right at home; design >thinking and practice; and a level of maturity which affords that community >/ neighborhood the ability to engage in sharing / creation / governance with >other communities who have achieved a similar level of maturity. > Looks like we cohoers are in it deep! -- Mark
