Community Lover's Guide

Local people have been inventing unique and innovative projects across the globe. Taken together these projects paint a picture of a different kind of neighbourhood - where positive effects are generated - by everyone, for everyone - in the course of going about their daily lives.

Community Lover's Guide shares these local projects, recognising that these imaginative projects are incredibly important. They stimulate our creative thinking and show us what is possible, as well as encouraging everyone to see how they can play a vital role in building wonderful places to live today ... and a more sustainable future.

We love them.

City Transition

A Community Lover's Guide of Places transformed by people re-inventing everyday life. A number of projects that have been developed and prototyped successfully are open source. This means that they can be tried and adapted without asking anyone for permission. Several of the projects below also have supportive online platforms designed to help people start their own locally. Community Lover's Guide is an open source platform supported by a large network of editors and projects from across the world. They would love to hear from you! If you live in a city with many innovative projects, or would like add your project to the website ...
