8 #digital #skills we must #teach our #children | Alternative solutions: the world is changing | Scoop.it
“The digital world is a vast expanse of learning and entertainment. But it is in this digital world that kids are also exposed to many risks, such as cyberbullying, technology addiction, obscene and violent content, radicalization, scams and data theft. The problem lies in the fast and ever evolving nature of the digital world, where proper internet governance and policies for child protection are slow to catch up, rendering them ineffective.Moreover, there is the digital age gap. The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.So how can we, as parents, educators and leaders, prepare our children for the digital age? Without a doubt, it is critical for us to equip them with digital intelligence.”

"Unwasted: The Future of Business on Earth" - Beyond Recycling - Documentary | Alternative solutions: the world is changing | Scoop.it

 

 

                                   DOCUMENTARY (54.27)

             "UNWASTED: THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS ON EARTH"

A close look at companies who are working on creating a less wasteful, more cost-effective and environmentally tenable society.

There is no waste in nature. When a tree falls it's only halfway through its life. When a bear or animal finishes eating food and processes it in its body that becomes fertilizer for future life in the forest flora.

So it's a beautiful thing the way nature has worked this all out. There is no waste in nature; the human animal is in fact the only animal on the planet to create waste that nature cannot process.

The reason you should care about this is because that's going to make a difference for the environment, for the economy, for your costs, for all the things you care about. In economics there's this term of "externalities" and there's a lot of cost out there that we collectively bear as a society, whether it's habitat destruction, whether it's cost that are directly being imposed on us the citizens who didn't ask for those costs to be put on us.  http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/unwasted-future-business-earth/

▶ MORE WITH LESS:  WHAT WOULD NATURE DO?

We are using resources faster than they replenish -- from fossil fuel reserves and groundwater to the thousands of plant and animal species now permanently lost from our planet.

   To support outer efforts towards sustainability we need to radically adjust our inner attitudes toward the material world. Relationships based on greed, over-identification with ownership, and the use of material goods to establish status and power over others, can be traded for new values and ways of living that empower a healthy and dignified relationship to all the earth's resources.

Being responsible for recycling 100% of our waste is an essential part of the Zero Footprint equation.  If we don't do it ourselves, we are making someone else do it.   How selfish is that?

Towards biodiversity in currencies | Alternative solutions: the world is changing | Scoop.it

Specifically, I believe that we need to support the introduction and expansion of three different kinds of currencies alongside our national currencies:

 

 

(1) an inflation-proof global complementary currency designed to stabilize the world economy;

 

(2) business-to-business currencies designed to counteract the effects of conventional money shortages during periods of economic crises and contraction; and

 

(3) community currencies that address a variety of social problems and strengthen the fabric of society.

Green Governance: The Human Right to a Clean and Healthy Environment

Green Governance: The Human Right to a Clean and Healthy Environment | Alternative solutions: the world is changing | Scoop.it

Efforts to protect the environment have hit a wall: the unwillingness of the State and the Market to set limits on market abuses and excesses. A Commons-based governance could solve the problem.


CSRWire Talkback Series on GREEN GOVERNANCE

About the Authors:
David Bollier is an author, activist and independent scholar of the commons. He is Cofounder of the Commons Strategies Group and blogs at Bollier.org. Burns H. Weston is the Bessie Dutton Murray Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus & Senior Scholar of the Center for Human Rights at The University of Iowa. Bollier and Weston jointly direct The Commons Law Project.

 

▶ ECOLOGICAL SURVIVAL, HUMAN RIGHTS, AND THE LAW OF THE COMMONS. The vast majority of the world's scientists agree: we have reached a point in history where we are in grave danger of destroying Earth's life-sustaining capacity. But our attempts to protect natural ecosystems are increasingly ineffective because our very conception of the problem is limited; we treat 'the environment' as its own separate realm, taking for granted prevailing but outmoded conceptions of economics, national sovereignty and international law. Green Governance is a direct response to the mounting calls for a paradigm shift in the way humans relate to the natural environment. It opens the door to a new set of solutions by proposing a compelling new synthesis of environmental protection based on broader notions of economics and human rights and on commons-based governance. Going beyond speculative abstractions, the book proposes a new architecture of environmental law and public policy that is as practical as it is theoretically sound. http://www.csrwire.com/blog/series/56-green-governance-ecological-survival-human-rights-and-the-law-of-the-commons/posts

For Haiti, the hospital is a shining symbol of what the future might look like, powered by the island's plentiful sunshine. Solar energy is definitely the future for Haiti, says Daniel Schnitzer, whose non-profit EarthSpark International plans to expand the country's first prepay micro grid with a 100-kilowatt solar power system to cover all of Les Anglais town centre in southern Haiti by June.

A Dutch company is about to unveil the world's first-ever bike path built entirely of solar panels. It's about 230 feet long — you can traverse it in few seconds of pedaling.

The bike path, built by SolaRoad, "is made up of rows of crystalline silicon solar cells, encased within concrete and covered with a translucent layer of tempered glass." It will open to the public on November 12.

The glass that overlays the panels has to be tough enough to withstand the thousands of cyclists who will ride on the path every day.
