“The value of sharing means that you have access to new resources and they are people resources as well as material resources – so that, for me, sustainability is linked to the combination and you can start being creative.  But you have to trust people and break down the barriers.” Philippe, Rushey Green Time Bank

3.15        Panel 2: Design to support community cohesion

“We’ve built a site that we hope to be global, but you can only ever build a site for an audience that you know and understand. … you make a connection and you all feel the better for it. There’s the practical thing, but I think the emotional connection for community is really important.”   Olivia, Patchwork Present

4.30        Responses

“If we want to understand design for sharing, we must balance a study of technological opportunity with analysis of the practice of people enabling sharing and building infrastructure on the ground. These are the people who are taking sharing from the level of serendipitous encounters to a more organised and mobilising series of engagements.”  Report, Design for Sharing
