towns and cities international

What if?

What if towns and cities had a purpose beyond housing, feeding and an opportunities to earn a living? What if towns and cities had a mission that empowers and unearths potentials? What if we build communities instead of accumulations of houses? What if towns and cities had a focus? Something to aim for? Something to contribute? What if a town or city was alive and thriving?

Welcome to the easy town website for towns and cities international, an easy town project to rethink and inspire towns and cities around the globe, and a demonstration that rethinking towns and cities is a promising option to address the messes humanity is in.

Unfortunately the town ideas don’t have a priority right now, even though notes for more ideas keep piling up.

With your support it will be possible to get a lot more done.

The easy town ideas website has a comprehensive overview of the project ideas which are presently first in line to take the next steps, plus information on what these steps might be, how the environment can benefit from the projects, and more.

The aim of the easy town projects is to create businesses and initiatives that do better than many present players; businesses and initiatives that defy stupidity and empower creatives, craftspeople, customers and communities worldwide; and businesses and initiatives that contributes to a healing planet instead of adding more destruction.
