Getting people together to do good things
But that’s only the first part of the challenge, and is only half of what Nesta and the Office for Civil Society have funded. The next bit is the important bit.
#wewillgather does one thing; it lets you get people together in a certain place, at a certain time, to do good things. When, where and what you do are entirely up to you. It could be five people for beach clean or a litter pick, fifty getting together and redecorating the local community centre, a few meeting up to start a new project, or a thousand for a flash mob to highlight an important issue. If you need any number of people, in one place, at the same time, then #wewillgather will make it easier for you.
While we’re making sure that it’s easy to do that – and it will be so simple, with just one Tweet starting a whole Heath Robinson-esque machine up – it’s easy to forget about the people. They’re us, all of us, and that means #wewillgather needs you. If you could get people together, in one place, what would your Good Thing be?
