BY PAULA DE MATOS

By closing the road regularly for just a short period of time and allowing your community to use it brings a whole load of benefits. Find out about Paula's journey and why she would like to see more people setting it up.

Joe DiVanna explains how social media, fake news, cyber currencies and new means of transportation are now moving from innovation to commercialization and consumers are redefining when, where, why, how and by whom they will be used.
