World Model involves building a big model, first of the Isle of Wight, in lots of parts, by anyone who wants to join in.
The pieces don't necessarily have to come together. They could be joined at a website perhaps.
The model has in fact already been started - with the wonderful Model Village at Godshill (above).
Theory behind the World Model project needs a bit of work yet. It connects with the basic human desire in most of us, if not all of us, to create, to produce, to build; and/or the need simply to be occupied. For instance, to have a practical hobby. It starts with childhood and our love for puppets, action figures, model cars, tanks, planes, animals, dolls and dolls houses... you can find models of almost everything. The passion for models seems universal.
This idea is to come together to build a huge model, in many sections, at different scales, of the whole world. To build it in real time and space, perhaps as a counter-balance to computers and virtual reality. To spark an interest, a sense of pride, start a new tradition, establish through it a world project open to everyone. Parts could be used as working models for suggesting and testing ways to improve the real world, at local and national levels...
