From the Project Manager
Where paths cross interesting things happen, ideas spark, preconceptions are challenged and friendships are built.
The essence of our being and the vitality of our lives stems from simple interaction with other people. From friendships developed at nursery through to the new people met in a care home, our lives are filled with decisions we each take individually but on the basis of an interpretation of a meeting with someone else. Not all interactions are positive. Sometimes crossed paths lead to cross words or worse. Without human interaction though the stimulus to vary one’s path would be lacking.
As a child it can be possible to envisage a route through education and onto success, happy marriage, a home and family life. Many will achieve those goals but none will get from point A to point Z without taking plenty of detours along the route. The largest influence on those detours is the people we meet.
This could be a matter of how businesses seek the benefit of economies of agglomeration, how crime can be reduced through intervention, the way in which voters engage with democracy or how good ideas can become movements for change.
Where paths cross business can flourish, people can reach safety and communities can come together. Where paths cross what follows is a thoughtful next step.
