N21online.com was set up in 2009, to explore how the Internet could be used to link up people in the local area where I live, the London N21 postcode. It has been designed as a community portal, with lots of useful information for people living in the local area.
The formula is simple: ABC
C: Campaigning and Connecting
All three are vital to sustaining a local community.
My name is Helen Osman and I have lived in London N21 for 25 years. My children attended local schools and I spent over a decade commuting into Moorgate from Grange Park, working in research, marketing and business development, with major companies from Axa – Yell; helping clients to develop new business opportunities.
N21online.com was developed to meet three key trends:
The Internet – is changing how we live, connect with people and do businesses on an unprecedented scale, so why not use it at the local level to connect people, both online and face-to-face. We are social animals and there is plenty of scientific evidence to show that connecting with other people, being active and socialising is good for a person’s mental, physical and even financial well-being.
The Green agenda – we have to learn to live more sustainable lives and a key way to do this is to live your life locally, reducing waste, transport miles and supporting your local economy.
The Age of Austerity – financial insecurity is now a fact of life, meaning that businesses, charities and other not-for-profit groups have to work harder to get a share of diminishing spending power.
Our residents and our businesses are both vital to the health and well being of our local economy, including the hundreds of businesses in the ‘hidden economy’, people working from home or from hired premises.
