      The tent/garden idea within this read is really cool!

        It is! This is their website. I’m sure they have open-sourced much of their thinking around it too, so it can be replicated elsewhere.

      For instance, the project EqualStreetNames brought a group of volunteers together who mapped the streets of Greater Brussels according to the gender of their names. Not all participants were in it to make a statement from the beginning, but rather because they enjoyed mapping. However, through the process of collaborating on a project around gender equality, they were sensitized to the issue themselves.

      Such cool projects. How community can influence people for the better. Readup missed a few paragraphs at the start, check the original for those.
