Connecting local responses around the world
I never realize how I could have observe or experience Local Response until I read the course module, I know it was there but never pay much attention on what it really meant.
But a local response I came across was with some villagers and their way of communicating.
In this village they have a village board which they update everyday with any activity/meeting the village has, but during a SALT visit, they aired their concerns and one was that they thought the village board was not as effective as it should be, because some members would not show up to meetings claiming they were not aware, or forgetting and being late.
So with that in mind they took action in creating a more effective way that can work for them in communicating to the villagers. So together they decided to continue with the Village Board but also purchase a Megaphone for village use, so that when an activity or meeting arrives they would use the village bike to ride around the village and announce it as the day arrives.And I think that action of local response took place because they knew what was not working for them and realize as a community everyone should be involve and they wanted each other to be involve in making decisions, interacting and working as a community. So letting everyone be aware of what was happening will encourage them to be involved in what is happening, and that will lead to the community working more closely together. And I thought that experience was an action of local response.
