The Power of Collaboration

May 31, 2011

It seems to me that there is little more important to the quality of community than the ability to collaborate.  I think it was Kevin Kelly who first said that

Access is better than ownership.

Collaboration has the potential to allow us to access skills, ideas, money, labour, resources and allows us to achieve things that would be impossible if we did not learn how to collaborate.

  • So what can we do that helps to build our ability to collaborate across the city?
  • What can we do to collaborate over consumption and ownership?
  • What can we do to collaborate over creativity and production?

Today a small group is meeting in Leeds to explore some of the se questions and see just what if anything can be done to make Leeds a more collaborative city.

I look forward to seeing what comes from it.
