Hands-on improvement: communities moving libraries, transforming swastikas

Two life-affirming videos from BBC, showing how communities can get their hands dirty (or dusty) in responding to their own challenges, or disaffected elements. 

From Germany, these young graffiti artists are taking their spray cans and transforming the swastikas sprayed in their streets (click on the image above for the video report). 

And below, the citizens of Ghent collectively decide the best way to move books from one library to another - click on the picture below for the video report (Ghent is an extraordinary town for collective endeavour - see here and here).
