Um...  /me scratches head.  I wonder why they believe that.  Anyway, I
disagree and I'm still interested in a specialized list/group/event.

I just realized this thread may have drifted from Garrett's initial intent,
which may have been more about "what policies should nb adopt now to solve
urgent social problems such as people sleeping or cooking."

I'm imagining something distinct but complementary to the "rebase /
runlevel 6" movement which I see as more specific, short term, and
concrete. By contrast, I believe what we are discussing here is more like
an ongoing discussion group about social change within noise bridge.

Does that distinction make sense?  Nuts and bolts versus skills and theory?

I'm thinking more along the lines of discussion groups, workshops,
show-and-tell for topics like conflict resolution methodologies, mediation
techniques, communication skills, therapeutic techniques, safe-space
facilitation, consensus lessons learned talks, etc...
