The spur: Standard

A periodical of what we're up to, our thoughts on social change, and everything else.

Hello there,

In this issue of The spur: Standard we're excited to announce the expansion of  spur:org as Ravi Bodanam joins the 123+ team as Coalition Builder. Ravi will be working to expand 123+'s network of partners, experts, and ally communities as the project looks to further support LGBTIQ+ initiatives globally. Welcome Ravi!

As we've been wrapping up some client work for some friends in New Zealand, we've been getting stuck into our latest in house project Sticks & Stones — an initiative to help make the internet more human by reducing harmful content in digital spaces. In addition to finalising some beautiful branding from our mates over at DSR Branding, we've gotten stuck into looking to understand who we all are/ how we handle ourselves when we use online spaces. If you're keen to help us to do so check out this survey and sign up to our holding page for further updates, as we also get ready to launch Sticks & Stones into the social media-sphere!

Lastly check out our updates from our 4 day work week experiment in the latest journal article by Lee.

Until next time!

Case study

The world's largest real-time mental health survey

spur·org · How is the World Feeling?

Mental health is intensely personal. Various campaigns and programs attempt to nudge individuals towards seeking help, yet struggle to accomodate for the individual themselves. How do we better understand how who we are, affects how we feel?

spur: designed and launched a global initiative to track individual mental wellbeing through a custom smartphone app and public campaign, reaching more than 11,000 people across the globe with 1 million+ data points.

How is the World Feeling?'s data has been employed by the likes of Black Dog Institute and Beyondblue in mental health research and provided a model for targeted, demographic specific mental health programs.
