Many people collect data every day as part of their daily routines. Think of step counts, or tracking mindful minutes using a smart phone or a wearable device. Think of keeping a daily diary, recording daily expenditure or recording the birds seen on Berry Head. A daily practice is a challenge but it’s rewarding. See the Brixham-based 365 Sea Swim Challenge for inspiration from their community of everyday swimmers.
And by recording regularly over a sustained period of time, you gain insights and see patterns that you would have otherwise missed.
What if, rather than collecting individual data for ourselves, the community gathered data and shared it for collective benefit? What additional benefit can we get from this? What can we learn from gathering our data collectively? What new insights can we gain into this place and new evidence bases to make a case for change?
Prospect Brixham will be asking these questions in an open and transparent process, with events and workshops to explore options that benefit the community and provide the required ethical and legal protections with technical infrastructure to support it.
Any questions? Please get in touch email@example.com. We’d love to hear from you.
