Building Community with Vancouver Makerspace
This creative community of makers and artists used Loomio to take the hassle out of decision-making, so they can have more time to focus on doing what they love. If, as a kid, you loved breaking things apart and learning how they worked, or creating things out of material like wood, cloth or cardboard you would fit right in at 1907 Triumph Street.
Helping NZ teachers win the fight for better pay
Teachers in New Zealand used Loomio to gain an important victory of increased pay and better working conditions for all teachers.

Increasing accountability with human rights metrics
It is the year 2019 and billions of people around the world still lack access to necessities like food, shelter and healthcare. Autocratic regimes and human rights abusers continue to capture news headlines, while populist leaders preach hate and intolerance. The state of human rights today can seem dismal, but the truth is these human rights challenges are not insurmountable. The Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI) has set out to quantify each country’s human rights performance, using a first-of-its-kind human rights measurement framework.

Many people like to support local business by shopping at their neighborhood co-op, but they may not realize that they can take that support to the next level.
Uniting charities for a common cause
Charities are built to support communities but they are rarely offered support, themselves.

Around four years ago, after Bath lost it’s charity support agency, the founders of 3SG stepped in to quickly build an organisation that could act in its place—facilitating funding from regional sources and helping to unify charities with similar missions.
