Spacehive is an online crowdfunding platform based in London that aims to make community projects as easy as online shopping.
similar to Brickstarter, Spacehive wants to make community projects an easy and engaging activity, with inspiring examples that range from revamping city halls and planting new green space, to playgrounds and public art installations.
Once projects have gone from proposal to verified status, funders can pledge their contribution online, with the project going ahead if the entire goal is raised.
Aside from its potential to address underfunded or otherwise unaddressed municipal issues, Spacehive endeavors to empower citizens with ownership over their neighborhood and inspire them to transform where they live in a democratic way.
