VocalEyes is a platform and process for modern day community organising and there’s quite a lot more to it than meets the eye. It’s only a tool, but when used skilfully, it can be a powerful process for community organising and positive change. This 30 second video should help explain some of the features and benefits..

Great news for Swansea Bay, the crowdfunding bid #bikes4swansea for the Santander Cycles University Challenge was successful, with Swansea raising the highest amount of promised funds for the scheme!
That means lots of new bikes will be appearing soon, starting with docking stations along the bay linking the two university campuses with the city centre. The amount raised was way above the goal, £100,210 (£53,178 target) which is brilliant news because...
"To win the competition we need[ed] to raise more than our target. 50% of any funds raised over and above the target will be used to make further capital investments – more bikes and docking stations – which could include more locations. The other 50% will pay for the additional running costs that will come as a result of the extra investment."
This is brilliant news for Swansea, well done Abertawe! We're looking forward to seeing more people out and about on the bikes, experiencing the joys and freedom of cycling!

Art has always been a source of joy for many. It is a form of therapy to relieve the stresses of the mind, and can come in many forms. From paintings to sketches, clay statues to wire figures, it is appreciated by the masses.
As educators, you must feel a strong sense of pride when you see your students excel, just as a parent does as they witness their child grow. Therefore, one of you proud mother (or father!) hens gave the lovely suggestion of encouraging the art students to produce a small structure that would be showcased in the courtyard at the end of term.
165 of you logged on to rate this idea and show our support and even take this idea to new heights with your comments!
With the initial suggestion only being 1ft high, comments responded to it questioning "Why can't it be bigger?", obviously encouraging bigger and better. While another comment opened up the doors to include the welders and carpenters as opposed to just the art students.
How lucky these students must be to be taught by such encouraging academics.
We all know the pain of trying to change the channel on the television, only to come to the realization that the batteries in the remote are flat.
Well, have no fear, VocalEyes is here!
You logged on to suggest that a rechargeable battery system be put in place per department. With an encouraging rating of 3.2, 107 of you agreed with this suggested idea.
This came with the added bonus of an estimated annual saving of £1000. Illustrating how good going green really is!
