This is one story...

From a cosmopolitan suburb of Birmingham, to East London's Olympic Park, to post earthquake Kathmandu, to the fragile peace of Kabul, to the refugee camps of Jordan, to the Syrian border town of Gaziantep. Civic has seeded a handful of strategic experiments in places with more in common than meets the eye. Everywhere we're invited, we experience the human condition - spritited, enterprising, restless and with the right enabling conditions - drawn always to doing more together, than alone. Each cluster of Civic initiative with its own unique local identity, yet sharing a common pattern, in relationship globally as part of a growing multi-sited change project.


The 'Gaziantep Change Club'. The 'East London Guild'. Kabul's 'New Club'. Jordan's 'Unlikely Allies Agency' - each an alliance as diverse as the corporate executive, the community activist, the venture capitalist, the refugee, the charity founder, the UN agency and the property developer. Civic has become the means by which unlikely allies, the big and the small, the local and the global, can work together - with common purpose. Like a movement. A baby one, but with ambition.
