=============Re-posted=================

Civic and community initiatives are working to vitalize our urban, rural, scientific and digital commons, and promoting a future guided by democratic participation, social equity and environmental sustainability. At the heart of these acts of “commoning” are satisfying, joyful social relationships that regenerate our interpersonal and physical surroundings. We reject the idea that we are merely self-interested individual consumers or competitors in a fierce market jungle. Instead, we also consider ourselves active and cooperative citizen caretakers working for healthy and fair neighbourhoods, cities and societies.

In times when European institutions are losing support and in deep crisis, we as European citizens are reclaiming Europe. We are concerned that many of our governments tend to favour the narrow interests of dominant market forces instead of catering to the common good of people and the planet.

Evan’s Filofax system: how this designer stays organized | ©bombchelle.com

While I love the tactile appeal of analog systems, my usage of them is typically haphazard at best and I always wind up mostly relying on digital means of staying organized. So when Evan Leah Quinn posted a photo of her Filofax that kinda made me drool a little, I knew I had to pester her with a million questions about how she used it. Happily, she indulged me, and you can find all her answers below!

Can you introduce us to you + your biz?

I’m Evan Leah Quinn. I’m a digital strategist & designer/developer. I own a small studio called SixteenJuly. I work with creative and wellness-based small business owners to help them create brands that flourish on the web. My business turned 5 this year! Most of my days consist of coaching calls, designing websites & other brand assets, coding, and all of the regular details involved in running a business.I live on the seacoast of New Hampshire, in a drafty colonial I call my city cottage. In my (carefully scheduled) time off, I create mixed media art, take a lot of photos, spend a lot of time hiking in the mountains, and am currently really into bouncing on my mini trampoline while binge-watching Netflix. I’m obsessed with jellyfish and stationery (as you’re about to see).

If you’re young and angry about the EU referendum, you’re right to be | ©The Guardian

It’s a lesson that I feel my own generation learned too late, the result of which has been apathy, a lack of political engagement, and the feeling that there is no point participating in a system that does not have our interests at heart. And so we do not vote as much as we should, or even bother to register, and then politicians continue to make policy without considering us. Because why should they tailor their policies to you, when they do not feel they need your vote?

Depressingly, and despite having the power to swing the result, it is predicted that turnout among young people was low – though we won’t know exactly how low just yet – and for this we can only blame ourselves.If you are young, and especially if you voted, I hope that the outcome of this referendum doesn’t put you off voting again.

Dancers perform vertical routine across Boston building facade | ©Dezeen.com

Suspended on thin cables and dressed in green, blue and yellow outfits, the dancers ran and jumped across the giant expanse of glass.

During the routine, they ducked under and leapt over one another – clearing impressive air from the vertical surface – as well as displaying synchronised moves.
