Give a Day is a ‘pure’ civil society activity, meaning it is not owned by any individual or organisation.

This is the second input in the Pembroke House Summer Learning Series. We are talking about doing the work.

This is the first input in the Pembroke House Summer Learning Series. We are talking about core ideas to get you ready for learning.
There is a recurrent theme in the group. How do we get other SRG members to see the potential of data and learning from it, as we do?

The group is interested in data in three areas. One, health; they want to know how being part of an SRG is helping with their wellbeing. Two, SRG dynamic; to what extent levels of connection, trust, and belonging (or the quality of ‘jellying’ to use member’s words) in the group affect their mission. Three, money; how is each member and the group doing financially (savings, profit).

The group has moved from a simple one to 10 How are you feeling today? question asked daily on their WhatsApp to experimenting with collecting health data with six wearables (Apple Watch, Huawei band, Fitbit Inspire, Leaf Urban, Samsung Galaxy Fit, Healbe). The task is here is to learn from existing objects to be able to build our own.
