There are (roughly) two ways to define the "community":
- The Metabolism of Cities community of contributors and involved parties
- The wider urban metabolism community -- whether they know/are involved with MoC or not
In our current site, we have a section of the navigation menu dedicated to COMMUNITY, which primarily contains things related to point 2: research projects by the academic world, implementation projects that happen wherever, as well as general updates and events in the field. However, in this new format it makes sense to create a home for OUR community, the MoC community. The new Community Hub is still a work in progress, and it actually features a mix: it has a forum (which is the MoC forum and pulls in all kinds of info from across our projects), but it also shows general Organizations and Projects in the field.
Here is what I would say we can roughly identify as potential content:
- Tasks (all the tasks from across all our projects)
- Overview of MoC projects (which you can see in the footer but which can be expanded upon)
- List with people
- Maybe something like a ranking, showing people's activity and their points, across the network
- News and events (that directly related to MoC... e.g. a hackathon we organize)
Wider urban metabolism community:
- News and events
The question is: (how) do we split up these two different types of content? Any thoughts??
