Hi Nick
this is a actually a great case study for bringing out the principles behind community organising which are:
go to where people are
build relationships through 121 conversations
find out what motivates people and what their self-interest is
ask people to commit to something they feel able to do
involve people in developing solutions, not just identifying problems
develop a network of people who can be activated when you need them
there is strength in numbers – most successful action (projects, businesses, campaigns, services) happen because enough people get behind them to build momentum and create change in a power structure or system
