Proximus project or how new collaborative approaches are changing social and humanitarian action.
The project definitely relies on collaborative methods, each member giving the time available (from some minutes to some hours per week). This has to be grass rooted, not academic. The project is collectively owned and driven.
Since it is a research project, in a rather unknown field, the roadmap is not clearly defined, and has to be found out collectively. The first phase, however, seems to start with the identification of existing collaborative projects in the social and humanitarian field. It may then try to find out the constraints and the success factor of such projects, including a possible typology of the commons shared by such projects. It may then try to see how to support such projects, and to share this knowledge, creating an open knowledge common.
To be successful, proximus project has to unit a large base of volunteers, preferably from all over the world, preferably having some experience on the field (others are also welcome to ensure cross fertilisation).
