George Monbiot wrote that bottom-up community activism could be one of the ideas that prevent the further decay of UK communities. What he was referring to is a series of community initiatives that together create momentum around community regeneration and resilience. So he says,

“Turning such initiatives into a wider social revival means creating what practitioners call “thick networks”: projects that proliferate, spawning further ventures and ideas that weren’t envisaged when they started. They then begin to develop a dense, participatory culture that becomes attractive and relevant to everyone rather than mostly to socially active people with time on their hands.” (Read mote on Interurban Lines).
