urban development making a difference with open source?
July 26, 2014 4:24 PM   Subscribe

I am finding British social entrepreneurs and charity leads to be very timid about expansion for expansion's sake. I am trying to find more compelling global voices who have shared an urban development idea in an open source way. Not at all in an IT sense, I should add. Bonus if it has zero to do with lending with interest.

Can you expand on that a little bit? I think what you're asking isn't clear.

I run a charity that you can find on your own, for urban development. I am find in i am finding a lot of the charities and social enterprises involved with making goods and services to be very anemic. I am looking for examples of charities and social enterprises even government agencies that have gone open source way to create useful community structures.

What do you mean by "open source"? It has a very specific meaning in an IT context, but not to my knowledge outside of that.

Also what is a "structure" in this context? A physical structure like play equipment?
