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:

WRITE A GUIDE

Collect our discoveries in a guide, to inspire and give practical insights to potential project leaders after these 15 months on the field

CREATE A COMMUNITY

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

MAKE MEDIA CONTENT

Give a better understanding of how diverse positive-innovation ecosystems work by broadcasting instructive videos & articles that we will make along the way

Concrete Examples

What are their impacts ?

 

Because they are interfaces of collective innovation, we believe that these places can catalyse the societal transformations we are all waiting for. Here are some concrete impacts they have on local populations & territories!
