Hi Nick,
Sounds like a great idea, but I guess unless you can get people to share your vision they won’t come on board. One of the things we know from community organising is that people act in their own self-interest. A community organising conversation starts by trying to find out what someone cares about enough to take a stand on or take action on. So that’s where you need to start. and you have to do it person by person. once you’ve found out what someone’s self-interest or passion is, then you need to find out what they are prepared to do, and get that commitment recorded so you can ‘activate them’ when you are ready.
I’ll add some more in a minute, but maye you could say some more about how you have tried to get your community on board?
