Positive Action Projects


invite only your most positive and pro-active friends
those who come together at the beginning of a Movement set the culture for everyone who comes later

Positive Public Action Gatherings

Creating a Global Movement of people meeting up for fun and positive activities which invite the public nearby to join in, making it simply normal to be invited to join in a fun activity when you are walking in public. Each action adding a ripple of friendliness to a growing wave of positive cultural change that is sweeping the World, and we are a leading part of building. This is also absolutely the best way to meet positive, pro-active, and amazing people; both when you are at home, and when travelling

The Brighter Tomorrow Map11

(formerly The Big Street Sleeper Resource Map) Creating an online global map for folk who are homeless to help them find essential and helpful resources to meet their basic needs, and get into stable housing/work. Including showers, addiction support groups, washing machines, soup kitchens, CV workshops, free suit lending for interviews, charities who'll support them in building a brighter future. Also crowd-funding to create laminated maps to distribute in London

Inspiring Hero's Workshops

Inspiring Hero's Positive Action Workshops: A creative writing/art workshop for troubled young people (EBD), creating a work on a simple life experience others will relate to which makes them smile; like playing with a dog, or hearing a new favourite song for the 1st time.

To show those too aware of what it feels like to be looked upon as trouble by general society, how simple it can be to boost their self-esteem and be proud at the person looking back at them in the mirror, simply by doing something kind for others. Focallocal members take their positive works into a local hospice to brighten the day of those living their last few days, and bring back a token of gratitude they can keep as a reminder

Socially Responsible News 3

A new way of reporting the news to counter the mainstream media's hyper-reactionary, morbidly fixated and socially divisive culture of reporting. Our news site will report Global news from the perspective of the positive reactions to upsetting incidents by individuals and related groups; while still reporting all important details which the average reader wants to know about, after reading our stories the reader will be left feeling closer to those around them, and reminded that 99.9% of the World are good people

Promoting togetherness and peace, rather than scaremongering, dramatising and dividing our society for their own ratings

Chase the Sun - Positive Action Road Trip
