Page/section development Plan

This plan also applies to its child pages.

Add example activities to outline page vision
Get to add some activities to ensure the process of doing so is easy to learn
Make a first attempt to curate the activities, such as grouping and categorising
Refine the core information required about each activity
Ask contributors to add more activities
