Local "Society" Fund Printer Friendly Version
I think it would be a fantastic idea for companies to have an optional "local society" fund. I know a lot of companies have a "social" fund in which employees can opt in or opt out. Even something as little as $10 per month can help immensely. For example, if there is a workplace that had even 30 employees contributing to a local society fund, that would come to a total of $3600 per year for causes to the local society fund, which could be helping their local society out in any way, shape or form. Some things I would do are: building homeless shelters, operating another food bank, buying toys and clothing for women and children's shelters, etc. I think it would be a great idea, a little can go a long ways. $10/month to a local society fund among several employees can change a lot of lives.

Community Centers Printer Friendly Version
There could be more public community centers in America that people could visit just to exist with other people. These community centers could be open 24/7 to accomodate people of all sleep schedules. Especially as we become more dependent on technology, and spend most of our time sitting in front of a screen, why do we have to sit isolated in our own homes to do it?
In college, I spent most of my time in such wifi enabled common areas, and quite enjoyed it. The most similar thing we have to that right now that I see are coffee shops. these are nice, but it is a requirement to buy a drink in order to sit there, and seating is usually limited. There are also public libraries, but they tend to be dirty, and talking isn't allowed. Obviously, a big challenge would be in keeping the place from being decimated by random miscreants, and keeping it open even though it doesn't offer a product or service. Perhaps the supervisors could charge a small admittance fee, and could be free to remove from the premises any people who destroy the property.
Reward: A more connected community.

Primary School Climbing Frame Printer Friendly Version
Children in primary school typically want to climb on the roof. Usually this is a dreadful crime, but must it be?
What about a low, single-story primary school with a roof garden/ playground accessed by ladders, rope ladders, fireman's poles and slides that all lead down into classrooms, the playground, or a central courtyard? There could be wobbly rope bridges from one classroom to another, jungle swings across the courtyard, and whatever else the architect's imagination can dream up?
Reward: The pleasure of seeing it built and enjoyed.
