Our local newspapers can sometimes reveal small surprises about our communities and the initiative of individuals. This week’s paper includes a news item about a healthy living project developed by a local couple. They started a free online program titled Fit With Friends using a weblog and facebook. The project presents a daily 15 minute fitness program that can be done with friends and family – a kind of social networked social fitness. This is the kind of project that Enabling Suburbs will profile. It shows how some personal commitment coupled with accessible networking tools can usher in positive change. It we all care about each other’s health and wellbeing – and work together to realise benefits – the locality’s social capital also gains.
