|ReSpace is a family made up of individual projects working within the same ethical framework. This structure is self sustaining and mutually beneficial. Projects can be buildings, transportation or enterprises… it’s their intentions that count.|
ReSpace’s system is based around the power of a network of projects. Large businesses, internet organisations and governments are far more enabled to take advantage of opportunities partly because of formalised processes and infrastructure. ReSpace hopes to create such a structure for social, community and environmental groups to also enable them to access these opportunities. This is what makes ReSpace different.
Our system – called Holistic Urban Regeneration – is distributed, peer-led and resource-generating. This means that it is non-heirarchical and collaborative. Projects help each other. This networking system also allows for peer review and means that it is less likely to be disrupted by abuse.
The secret behind the holistic benefits of this system is kept in a sophisticated process of “stakeholder analysis”. Expanding the idea of a “stakeholder” to include marginalised and underprivileged groups. Without this process these groups are often the hardest hit by lack of opportunity. ReSpace is committed to ensuring that projects in the RALLY network (ReSpace Alliance) are inclusive and engaging to those in most need.
