Sharing Action

Stories of Action

One of the great things about working is Paradigm is that we get to connect with people around the UK and beyond.   Our passion is connecting people. ideas and action SO in this section we will share stories not just about our work BUT about the work of people internationally.

Why start from scratch if we can be inspired by other peoples actions?  Why not share ideas and make things happen locally?   Chat about what other people are doing, take the seeds, the values and make things happen to ensure ordinary lives for all where ever you are.
