Abstract

Community 21 is a joint initiative between University of Brighton and The Rural Community Council Network led by Action in Rural Sussex. Co-directed by Nick Gant (UOB) and Teresa Gittins (AiRS) Community21 takes the form of an online ‘toolbox’, social networking and data management system that facilitates community networking and participation, data gathering and innovative community led planning processes. It’s primary aim is to practically facilitate sustainability (social, economic and environmental) through methodological approaches that connect individuals and communities in a an ‘open innovation’, ‘multi-local society’ of active communities of practice. The project sits within the context of new and emerging ‘localism’ and planning legislation formed by previous, and the current coalition government, and within participatory, co-design and sustainable design debates.
