MANY is a platform to facilitate migration through an exchange of needs. It serves people who might say, “We don’t want your citizenship or your victimhood or your segregation or your bad jobs. We don’t want to stay.”
Working around national obstructions, MANY reflects the persistence of resourceful people making secure group-to-group connections. Shorter project-based journeys that trade in non-market exchanges of time and training are generated and aggregated for global credentials.
There are no haves and have nots, and no solutions—only needs and problems to put together.
MANY is a heavy information system that exists to build spatial networks and cosmopolitan mobility. Cities can bargain with their underexploited space to attract a changing influx of talent and resources—matching their needs to the needs of mobile people to generate mutual benefits.
