Thrivespring

Thrivespring is a free platform for community resilience, self-sustainability and community-based disaster risk management. To start, the platform has two main features: a community projects notice board, and a resources hub. Additional features will be built over the coming year.

The notice board enables people to get connected and work together on local projects to enhance community resilience. Project leaders are able to request volunteers, resources, donations, fundraisers, partners and sponsors. The projects must fit into one of the following categories:

  • Preparedness & Mitigation (eg. flood action groups; community emergency hubs)
  • Emergency Response (eg. evacuation assistance; search and rescue)
  • Recovery (eg. post-disaster “shop local” campaigns; neighbourhood clean-up crews)
  • Food Production and Distribution (eg. urban farming; community supported agriculture; community gardens; surplus food rescue)
  • Water Security (eg. rainwater harvesting; water recycling systems)
  • Local Energy (eg. renewable energy microgrids)
  • Communications (eg. wireless mesh networks; amateur radio)
  • Local Exchange (eg. time baking; local exchange trading systems)
  • Community Assistance (eg. running errands for seniors during Covid; lost pets search groups)
  • Health Initiatives (eg. community mental health support)
