We’ve been helping Citizen’s projects come to life through Our MK, a crowdsourcing (and now a crowdfunding!) website to share ideas, volunteer to help projects, and connect with experts. You can join in by visiting www.ourmk.org.
You can also explore our new crowdfunding page on Our MK and start crowdfunding your own idea to improve your community!
We’ve recently successfully funded four OurMK projects by crowdfunding on Our MK.
One of the contracts Community Action: MK delivers is for the MK:Smart project. MK:Smart is bringing together data, enterprise and communities to transform energy, transport and water use in Milton Keynes.
Community Action: MK have been working along side the Open University and Graymatter to collect ideas from people across the city. We’ve been holding workshops, visiting communities and connecting with voluntary and community groups. So far we have recorded over 900 conversations with people across the city, and have heard all kinds of ideas from text alerts if your bus is running late, to a school workshop to teach kids about their energy and water use.
