Flashmop in Poland
Newsflash
PL - U Siemachy

On the 12th of March 2010 the Polish INCLUSO group organised a flashmob in Krakow (see the definition of flashmob here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashmob). The ideal was to mop the surface of the Small Market and that is why we named the action "flashmop". The event was fully organised online - on chat, Ning network and Gadu-Gadu communicator. The event itself was about 20 minutes long and it was filmed all way trough. The footage got edited and broadcasted on YouTube.

It's built using the Ning platform which SHMU in Aberdeen, Scotland, is using for its own researches. (Other partners use it too.)

A trip to the national police training college has given an Incluso team an opportunity to engage members of their Youth Radio Project (YRP) on a much deeper level. Staff from SHMU in Aberdeen, came up with the idea after a visit to Scotland's police training facility at Tulliallan, near Stirling. They have set up an online forum discussion to ask two questions:
