Third places of positive innovation are multiplying around the world. Think-tanks, urban wastelands, living labs, eco-villages: these are all areas of collective intelligence, friction, inclusion & citizen empowerment. Public, private, associations, communities, meet there to imagine and experiment new solutions to the challenges of populations & territories. These pools of co-creation are the first attempts of a collective ambition to renew the living-together. With the Wide Open project, we want to contribute to this research towards another possible. More innovative, more human, more sustainable.

The Project

Wide Open is a think & do tank, which aims at fostering the movement of third places for positive change. During a 15-month expedition, at the heart of 10 inspiring ecosystems worldwide, we combine field research and community gatherings. We work in intelligence with all our partners: associations, private groups, start-ups, and any soul willing to contribute to this search for collective & positive innovation. Here are our main objectives during the trip:

BUILD A NARRATION

Give a better understanding of how diverse and impactful positive-innovation ecosystems can be by broadcasting instructive videos & articles made along the way.

WRITE A GUIDE

Write a collective guide gathering international inspirations, to inspire and give practical insights to potential ecosystem builders - from the public, private, NGO, or civilian sectors.

CREATE A COMMUNITY

Gather thinkers & doers willing to collaborate & share best-practices, experiences & knowledge on positive-innovation ecosystems internationally. Join HERE
