What does participation yield for participants?
Responding to the call to take part enables people, through different channels, to experience a passionate optimism: they want to experience now what it is possible to accomplish; they want to do whatever is beneficial and meaningful for others and for coming generations. What is done on a small scale in one context creates meaning and repercussions within a broader compass. What people engage in may appear not to affect themselves directly, but it feeds and promotes something essential for the collective actor. It enables the actor to realize an effective mobilization or rapid and widespread diffusion of a service-project through multiple affiliations.
