Users as producers
One hour’s internet surfing costs 30 minutes pedalling. In 2008, campers converged on Kingsnorth power station for a week of learning, sustainable living and climate action. The event was organised by Camp for Climate Action. Image courtesy of Mike Russell.
Users as producers – such as the Expert Patients Programme which teaches users to manage their own health conditions more effectively and be more confident in their own care. Teachers on the programme are themselves living with long term conditions. Also, the US-based Citizen Schools organisation which mobilises citizens who are not teachers to work in schools.
