If COVID19 has taught us anything, being part of an engaging community gives us a sense of belonging. It enables us to share personal relatedness and support growth of each other, ourselves and our environment.
In its simplest form, it’s a group of people who share something in common. That shared factor could be family or geography; faith or race; life stage—or an overlapping interest passion (and perhaps profession).
A community can be as large or small a grouping as you want it to be. It might include your family, neighbors and childhood friends; people with similar beliefs in an online forum; classmates from school days past…
But for a group of people to form a true community that enriches the lives of its members, the individuals involved must also feel a shared sense of trust, connection, and caring for one another.
Sharing is the joint use of a resource or space. It is also the process of dividing and distributing. In a traditional sense, it refers to joint or alternating use of inherently finite goods, such as a common pasture or a shared residence. It can also refer to the sharing if ideas and knowledge – and this is where its power really comes in.
SHARING creates an environment in which creativity and innovation may flourish. Ideas lead to other ideas, creating expanded value for the community as a whole. It also benefits the community by increasing its collective intelligence.
This builds CONNECTION: our memories, experiences, and emotions. It allows us to bond with other people at a deeper level — which builds valuable relationships and gives us a sense of belonging. This helps us reach our goals – but it also brings security in knowing that we are part of something bigger than ourselves.
Members of shared spaces are more likely to be inspired, solve problems and share their achievements with one another if they passionately agree with the group’s values. People who passionately share their community’s values and beliefs, feel trusted by one another, and work together can accomplish anything.
It also has another importance, RESOURCES – communities are rich in resources. Both knowledge and tangible resources. Resource sharing of infrastructure is an important example as there is so much unused space that’s hidden, locked away and private. By banding together as a community we can help each other by lending what we already have, and making the most efficient use of space.
We believe that through sharing we can change the way we distribute our infrastructure and resources when we don’t use them, to create greener, smarter, and more liveable cities. Oscar helps members of the community to earn some additional income whilst unlocking more parking spaces for the drivers who need them. We believe that as a community, we can help solve our city’s parking woes.
