SOLAR POWER:  CHINA LEADS WORLD TO SOLAR POWER RECORD IN 2013 In the last two years, countries around the world have added almost as much new solar photovoltaics (PV) capacity as had been added since the invention of the solar cell. Nearly 38,000 megawatts of PV came online in 2013, a new annual record. In all, the world’s installed PV generating capacity is now close to 140,000 megawatts—enough to power each home in Germany. Falling costs and effective policies continue to drive tremendous growth in solar power. http://www.earth-policy.org/indicators/C47/solar_power_2014

▶  IN BEIJING YOU CAN PAY FOR TRAIN RIDES WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES.
Across the world, there are many ways to encourage recycling. Tax breaks, virtual points, deposit payments--there's no shortage of ideas. Recently, we even came across a machine in Istanbul that gives out dog food in return for a bottle or two. Beijing is now taking its own approach by giving free train rides and mobile phone top-ups to people redeeming used plastic. Machines in 34 locations take bottle deposits and calculate their worth, issuing a credit to the person's mobile account or transit pass. Sensors scan the bottle's weight and composition, then prompt users to choose their option. http://www.fastcoexist.com/3034720/in-beijing-you-can-pay-for-train-rides-with-plastic-bottles

 -▶ BUILDING A BUBBLE-like BIOME IN BEIJING COULD LET RESIDENTS BREATHE CLEAN AIR. Beijing's notorious air pollution has reached beyond hazardous levels in recent years, with the city covered in thick, toxic smog for a good part of the year. While the Chinese government has implemented various pollution-battling policies like car bans and the planting of green roofs, others like London-based design firm Orproject have gone down the road of more extreme design measures -- suggesting the building of bubble-like biomes, sealed from outside pollution, that would allow residents to actually breathe clean air. http://www.treehugger.com/urban-design/beijing-bubbles-biome-clean-air-orproject.html

While some details of the fourth draft are still under discussion, it has been agreed that the principle of prioritising the environment above the economy will be enshrined in law, according to scholars who have been involved in the process. The fourth draft is due to be completed within weeks.

"(Upholding) environmental protection as the fundamental principle is a huge change, and emphasises that the environment is a priority," said Cao Mingde, a law professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, who was involved in the drafting process.

Samantha Groen's curator insight, February 17, 4:44 PM

It is crazy to see the costs of the pollution and impacts of big companies that are having an impact on the environment around them put into a dollar value. It really gives a better view ti the picture. Hearing that in 2009 alone the damages exceeded the worth of $7 trillion. That is a giant amount of damage that is being done to the world we live in. The article states that a great deal of companies would not be able to continue making a profit if they stopped making the damages. This is very sad. 

 

This article gives insight about what kind of trouble our generations have gotten us into throughout the years and some of the damage done is irreversible. It emphasizes the importance yet struggle to improve how we do things that impact around us. With the discussion we had in class regarding the increase in population and what will happen in 2050; this will have a huge influence in the future. Becoming more sustainable should be a top priority for the world to approach together. 

 

Just my thoughts.

“Here is this vast, savage, howling mother of ours, Nature, lying all around, with such beauty, and such affection for her children, as the leopard; and yet we are so early weaned from her breast to society, to that culture which is exclusively an interaction of man on man.” Henry David Thoreau



Treehugger, February 26, 2015
- ▶ 'LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS" IS A MUST-READ FOR PARENTS AND EDUCATORS. Kids are developing more problems than ever (think obesity, technology addiction, adolescent depression, suicide, etc.), all of which Louv connects to nature deficit disorder. Spending more time outdoors could help resolve many of these issues, but this can happen only if kids are allowed greater access to nature. That’s where parents and policies come into play   http://www.treehugger.com/culture/last-child-woods-must-read-all-parents-and-educators.html


November 19, 2012 The Guardian, George Monbiot

- ▶  IF CHILDREN LOSE CONTACT WITH NATURE THEY WON'T FIGHT FOR IT.  With half of their time spent at screens, the next generation will be poorly equipped to defend the natural world from harm...

... While the surveys show that the great majority would like to see the living planet protected, few are prepared to take action. This, I think, reflects a second environmental crisis: the removal of children from the natural world. The young people we might have expected to lead the defence of nature have less and less to do with it... http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/19/children-lose-contact-with-nature

LEARNING IN NATURE IS GOOD FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS. Children belong outdoors. We know this intuitively, but now an extensive and ever-growing body of research supports it.

- ▶  WHY KIDS NEED NATURE. When a child is out in nature, all the senses get activated. He/She is immersed in something bigger than themselves, rather than focusing narrowly on one thing, such as a computer screen. They're seeing, hearing, touching, even tasting. Out in nature, a child's brain has the chance to rejuvenate, so the next time he has to focus and pay attention, perhaps in school, he'll do better.  http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/parent-child/why-kids-need-nature

documents innovative outdoor-education programs around the country created to help children understand and experience the wonders and joys of nature. The film explores the immediate and lasting benefits of introducing young children to "green" experiences. Natural spaces - in the form of gardens, small trails and outdoor "green adventure" areas - allow for the discoveries and choices vital to child development and learning. In addition, outdoor education can cultivate in children a permanent connection with the natural world - a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility. http://vimeo.com/channels/371945/30186232/77981721

Christian Allié's curator insight, February 14, 2014 6:25 AM

.........""""""""""""""............

 

[  .......  ]

 

....... 

And here we meet the other great loss. Most of those I know who fight for nature are people who spent their childhoods immersed in it.

 

Without a feel for the texture and function of the natural world, without an intensity of engagement almost impossible in the absence of early experience, people will not devote their lives to its protection. The fact that at least half the published articles on ash dieback have been illustrated with photos of beeches, sycamores or oaks seems to me to be highly suggestive.

 

Forest Schools, Outward Bound, Woodcraft Folk, the John Muir Award, the Campaign for Adventure, Natural Connections, family nature clubs and many others are trying to bring children and the natural world back together. But all of them are fighting forces which, if they cannot be turned, will strip the living planet of the wonder and delight, of the ecstasy – in the true sense of that word – that for millennia have drawn children into the wilds.

 Peter Buffett, son of billionaire investor Warren on the conflict between capitalism and humanism. "THE CONFLICT BETWEEN CAPITALISM AND HUMANISM... YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH"

 

 New York Times, July 26, 2013 - by Peter Buffet

-▶ THE CHARITABLE-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX - PETER BUFFET

 As more lives are destroyed by the system that creates vast amounts of wealth for the few, the more heroic it sounds to “give back.”

Peter Buffett, son of billionaire invester Warren, argues that philanthropy needs to do a better job of listening. He says that the structure of philanthropy is such that nothing seems to get better, but rather locks existing problems into place.

"Poverty, hunger, the environment, education, health - all those things are symptoms of a larger problem of nobody really wanting to get in there and blow some things up," Buffett says... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/27/opinion/the-charitable-industrial-complex.html?_r=1&

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, December 1, 2013 6:43 PM

When all is said and done about the pros and cons of philanthropy today, we are rely on it more and more. As our government continues to replace democracy with Casino Capitalism, it is leaving the 99% behind in this high stakes poker game being played by the 1%. This has also increased the crevase between wealth and the poverty by creating a new socio-economic class, The Middle Class Poor.

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help Sustainable Business and Environment - Restoring Values

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help  Sustainable Business and Environment - Restoring Values | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it



A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security."~ Albert Einstein



Guardian Sustainable Business, January 08, 2013

 -▶ HOW A SENSE OF SACRED CAN HELP SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS - RESTORING VALUES. Sustainability leaders could learn from Buddhist Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, who believes in a deeper human connection with Mother Earth...

 "If nothing is sacred, most of all nature, then we create the potential for the perfect kind of storm, to which it will be virtually impossible to adapt, let alone mitigate." He hits the nail on the head; we are not going to save ourselves and countless species from destruction with innovations in technology and business thinking alone, unless we heal our profound disconnection with Mother Earth. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/sense-sacred-sustainable-business-buddhist

IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The term sustainable development rapidly gained wide-scale acceptance, with the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development just one of the many (inter)governmental or top-down bodies that have set up in the past three decades to include environmental goals in planning and policy.. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

WHO'S IN CONTROL? -- NATION STATE OR GLOBAL CORPORATIONS?
 "By many measures, corporations are more central players in global affairs than nations," writes Benjamin Barber in Jihad vs McWorld. "We call them multinational but they are more accurately understood as postnational, transnational or even anti-national. For they abjure the very idea of nations or any other parochialism that limits them in time or space." "We are in government but not in power," said Lula's close aide, Dominican friar Frei Betto. "Power today is global power, the power of the big companies, the power of financial capital." http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/02/control-nation-states-corporations-autonomy-neoliberalism

TriplePundit, June 26, 2014
-▶ CONSUMER DEMAND COULD TURN THE TIDE ON SUSTAINABLE FISHING. In 2006 Walmart sold fresh Atlantic salmon fillets in its stores for $4.84 per pound — an incredibly low price. Where did it all this cheap salmon come from? As it turns out, over the previous 10 years, fish farms had proliferated along the coast of Chile, a country far from the natural habitat of Atlantic salmon in the cold waters of the northern hemisphere. Lax regulation and price-driven suppliers eager to meet Walmart’s demand led to exactly the kind of overcrowded, antibiotic-heavy, environmentally-destructive fish farms that environmentalists caution against. In 2007 an outbreak of an infectious disease led to a near-collapse of the salmon farming industry in Chile....  http://www.triplepundit.com/2014/06/corporate-policies-turn-tide-sustainable-fishing-push-consumer-demand/

                                  JAPAN:  ROBOTS THAT CARE.  

To ease the burden on medical staff, Japanese hospitals and retirement homes have opened their doors to humanoids to fill the gap left by a growing shortage of manpower. It's no secret that Japan is facing a demographic crisis. Its population is aging and its birth rate is on the decline. The Japanese government admits it doesn't have enough nurses to care for the one in four people aged over 65, a ratio that will only increase in the next few decades. http://www.france24.com/en/2014-05-25-1915-down-earth-robot-japan-elderly-care-health-palro-humanoid/

 THE HIDDEN CONNECTIONS - SUPERORGANISATIONS: LEARNING FROM NATURE'S NETWORKS

Fritjof Capra, in his book ‘The Hidden Connections’ applies aspects of complexity theory, particularly the analysis of networks, to global capitalism and the state of the world; and eloquently argues the case that social systems such as organisations and networks are not just like living systems – they are living systems. The concept and theory of living systems (technically known as autopoiesis) was introduced in 1972 by Chilean biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela.

                                 NPR FreshAir, February 12, 2014
                           Interview With Elizabeth Kolbert, Author

▶  IN THE WORLD'S "SIXTH EXTINCTION": ARE HUMANS THE ASTEROID? Elizabeth Kolbert is the author of the new book The Sixth Extinction. It begins with a history of the "big five" extinctions of the past, and goes on to explain how human behavior is creating this sixth one — including our use of fossil fuels and the effects of climate change.

"We are effectively undoing the beauty and the variety and the richness of the world which has taken tens of millions of years to reach," Kolbert tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "...

             https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0deJfPUj1f8#t=267

 There are so many different ways to fight poverty, and it's getting easier every day for people from all walks of life to get involved in doing so. But such unprecedented and growing opportunity to do good also carries the risk of repeating past mistakes at an unprecedented and growing scale.

Professor Ananya Roy, at the University of California at Berkeley, takes a class of around 700 undergraduates each fall semester on a journey walking the fine line between that opportunity and risk, or in her words, "the impossible space between the hubris of benevolence and the paralysis of cynicism." http://www.nextbillion.net/blogpost.aspx?blogid=3413

Simply put, if people aren't safe, nothing else matters. Shipping grain to the poor, helping them vote, or assisting their efforts to start a farm is irrelevant. Whatever material improvements we provide will simply wash away in the face of the corrupt police forces, out-of-control, armies, private militias, organized criminals, and — not least — failed justice systems that plague poor countries....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY0FRy4JLYo

-▶  RETHINKING PROPERITY. CAPITALISM vs ENVIRONMENT.  CAN GREED EVER BE GREEN?
Is it possible to run an expanding capitalist economy while keeping its impacts within safe ecological boundaries, or is the greed-driven system effectively a suicide machine that is doomed to destroy itself? The fact that the now dominant capitalist economic system is unsustainable is not in doubt. It has contributed to the breaching of several ecological boundaries, in relation to climate change, biodiversity loss and nutrient enrichment. At the same time as damaging the natural systems that sustain it, capitalism is also leading to increasing inequality, in turn creating social tensions that make it still more exposed.

THE CONUNDRUM OF THE HEART - SUSTAINABILITY http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/conundrum-heart-sustainability


 The most widely accepted definition of “sustainable development” appeared the 1987 report of UN’s World Commission on Environment and Development, titled Our Common Future. It said: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”


InterPress Service, November 28, 2014
IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The term sustainable development rapidly gained wide-scale acceptance, with the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development just one of the many (inter)governmental or top-down bodies that have set up in the past three decades to include environmental goals in planning and policy.. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

▶ HOW NATURAL CAPITAL IS REDEFINING SUCCESS

As far as we've come in redefining corporate governance and success toward the triple bottom line, we still have a distance to go before there is real specificity and widespread agreement among companies and consumers about what terms like "natural capital" or even "sustainability" mean.

This can be seen as a shortcoming or a vacuum, but it's also a huge opportunity for smart businesses to take up. The moment is ripe for disruption; potentially revolutionary understandings of businesses' goals and metrics are increasingly coming into focus. More than ever, consumers want to live meaningfully and to engage with brands that have a purpose. That's galvanizing companies to drill down on defining their social and environmental purpose today, and anticipating how it will evolve in the future.... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tensie-whelan/how-natural-capital-is-redefining-success_b_6005244.html

TIME TO TRANSFORM?

It has become patently clear to many that business is undergoing a metamorphosis. Due to a perfect storm of social, economic and environmental factors, organizations have little option other than to seek out opportunities in these volatile times, adapt and evolve to what the book The Nature of Business refers to as “firms of the future” – businesses more akin to living organisms than mechanistic monoliths designed for the Industrial Era. These firms of the future can take inspiration from nature at all levels within their strategies and operations.

BEYOND 'BUSINESS-AS-USUAL': THE CRISIS OF CIVILISATION IS AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY

The Converging climate, energy, and economic crises. Importantly, that's not to say that we're all doomed. Far from it: while the crisis of civilisation shows that business-as-usual is not sustainable - and could at worst lead to an uninhabitable planet by the end of this century based on the consensus science projections - I've argued that we are already in the midst of a process of civilisational transition which offers unprecedented opportunities to re-envision new forms of prosperity that can function in harmony with our environment, rather than in conflict with it.   http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2013/sep/24/crisis-civilisation-unprecedented-opportunity-transition

  As China’s economic growth slows, it is shifting its base from manufacturing, which has powered its growth, to tertiary industry, where the IT and software sector holds the key. In the forefront of this trend is Neusoft Corp., one of China’s biggest software companies. Founded 23 years ago by Liu Jiren with three computers, the company has introduced new services to China one after the other. The company provides IT services including car electronics, health care, social insurance, energy and telecom.
Liu has also established universities that specialize in IT education. The schools allow students to start in-house ventures where they can gain hands-on experience in management.
Liu shares his views on the role the IT industry should play in the Chinese economy and how to nurture IT talent. http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/asianvoices/141107.html

 ▶  TURNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY INTO LOCAL CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  "We no longer know where our food comes from when it ends up on our plate or where the waste goes when we finish a meal," observes Michelle Long, founder and chief executive of Balle .. Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth). But the more connected as individuals we are, she maintains, the happier and more fulfilled we'll be as human beings. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/global-economy-connected-communities-local

-▶  LESSONS FROM THE SHARING ECONOMY

Companies everywhere are jumping on the sharing economy trend. From sharing skills to houses to cars, the sharing economy is transforming many industries. Technology has lowered the barriers so that anyone can provide services blurring the line between “personal” and “professional.”

The consumer peer-to-peer rental market alone is worth $26 billion. Private investors are noticing as Airbnb recently received a $10 billion valuation, and startups like Lyft, Poshmark, fitmob and Uber, which received a $17 billion valuation in its last round, are gaining traction while consumers benefit from lower prices, higher quality, and unprecedented convenience. http://techcrunch.com/2014/08/30/critical-lessons-from-the-sharing-economy/

-▶  A COLLECTION OF STWR RESOURCES ON THE SHARING ECONOMY. There are both reasons for optimism as well as caution about the current development of the sharing economy. On the one hand, its gradual political evolution suggests that the ethic of sharing is set to become increasingly essential and popular in the years ahead, especially in the wake of continuing economic crises and the collapsing model of debt-fuelled over-consumption. 

     On the other hand, however, there are already signs that the sharing economy is being co-opted by purely commercial interests and stripped of its transformative potential as an answer to gross inequality, ecological destruction, the lack of true democracy, and almost every other progressive cause. 

     For this reason, STWR has published various resources over recent months and years that outline how authentic forms of sharing relate to the political and economic challenges of the 21st century... http://www.sharing.org/information-centre/articles/collection-stwr-resources-sharing-economy?dm_i=M4P,2IZXQ,E854AO,97N3S,1

The Guardian, June 1, 2014
THE OPEN SOURCE REVOLUTION IS COMING AND IT WILL CONQUER THE 1%  Today's capitalism is inherently predatory and destructive: "Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era."

Open source everything, in this context, offers us the chance to build on what we've learned through industrialisation, to learn from our mistakes, and catalyse the re-opening of the commons, in the process breaking the grip of defunct power structures and enabling the possibility of prosperity for all.

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth. The wealth of networks, the wealth of knowledge, revolutionary wealth - all can create a nonzero win-win Earth that works for one hundred percent of humanity. This is the 'utopia' that Buckminster Fuller foresaw, now within our reach."

A DREAM FORECLOSED:  WALL STREET FORECLOSURE BUYBACKS AT FIRESALE PRICES. As President Obama touts the "housing recovery," journalist Laura Gottesdiener examines the devastating legacy of the foreclosure crisis and how much of the so-called recovery is a result of large private equity firms buying up hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes. More than 10 million people across the country have been evicted from their homes in the last six years. Her new book, "A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home," focuses on four families who have pushed back against foreclosures. "The banks exploited a larger historical trajectory of discrimination in lending and in housing that has existed since the beginning of this country. The banks intentionally went into communities that had been red-lined, which meant that the Federal Housing Administration had made it a policy to not lend and not to guarantee any loans in minority neighborhoods all throughout most of the 20th century that didn’t supposedly end until well into the 1960s," Gottesdiener says. "And they exploited that historical reality and pushed the worst of the worst loans in these communities that everyone knew were unpayable debts — that Wall Street knew." ... http://www.democracynow.org/2013/8/6/a_dream_foreclosed_as_obama_touts

WALL STREET NOW LARGEST OWNER OF SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL HOMES You may not have heard of the Blackstone Group, but it’s the largest private equity firm in the world. And now it’s become the largest owner of single-family rental homes in the country. Over the last few years, Blackstone and other Wall Street firms have been quietly grabbing up huge swaths of the rental housing market, purchasing more than 200,000 cheap homes, hoping to turn a profit. At one auction in Atlanta, Blackstone swept up 1,400 houses in a single day.   

And as private equity firms gobble up huge swaths of the housing market, they are partnering with big banks to bundle the mortgages on these rental homes into a new financial product known as "rental-backed securities," reminiscent of the "mortgage-backed securities" that helped cause the last financial crisis. http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/10/wall_streets_land_grab_firms_amass

RISING RENTS - COMMUNITY/SOCIETY  IMPACTS

                                    ==========================


 TripleCrisis, March 19, 2014

▶RENT IN A WARMING WORLD. Rent isn’t just the monthly check that tenants write to landlords. Economists use the term “rent seeking” to mean “using political and economic power to get a larger share of the national pie, rather than to grow the national pie,” in the words of Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who maintains that such dysfunctional activity has metastasized in the United States alongside deepening inequality.
When rent inspires investment in useful things like housing, it’s productive. The economic pie grows, and the people who pay rent get something in return. When rent leads to investment in unproductive activities, like lobbying to capture wealth without creating it, it’s parasitic. Those who pay get nothing in return. Two other types of rent originate in nature rather than in human investment. Extractive rent and Protective Rent.... http://triplecrisis.com/rent-in-a-warming-world/

Naked Capitalism, November 07, 2014
AFTER MESSING UP THE HOUSING MARKET, THE "SMART MONEY" BAILS OUT. – smart because it has access to the Fed’s free moolah – is abandoning the housing market.

Wall Street money entered the housing market gingerly in 2010 and 2011, then piled helter-skelter into select metro areas over the next two years, grabbing vacant single-family homes out of foreclosure with the goal of first renting them out, then selling to yield-desperate investors and unsuspecting mutual-fund holders their latest toxic concoction: rent-backed structured securities that are even worse than the mortgage-backed structured securities that helped take down the financial system only a few years ago.

It worked. Each wave of buying ratcheted up prices via the multiplier effect, not only in the neighborhood but beyond. It created instant and juicy paper gains on all prior purchases. In this way, the same companies, now mega-landlords, were able to push up the value of their own holdings with new waves of purchases. It was a wonderful game while it lasted. And it was funded with nearly free money the Fed graciously made available to the largest players. Housing Bubble 2 came into full bloom.

▶  ARE WOMEN LEADING THE SOCIAL ENTERPRISE REVOLUTION?

Today, according to the according to The Independent, “Women are almost twice as likely to reach the top ranks in social enterprises as they are in mainstream businesses,” and “more than 90 percent of companies that focus on tackling social problems have at least one woman on their leadership team.” To put it even more bluntly, as former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said in her address at the 2012 Social Enterprise World Forum in Rio de Janeiro, it seems that “women are natural social entrepreneurs.”..http://www.forbes.com/sites/yec/2013/10/17/can-women-lead-the-social-enterprise-revolution/

PATRIARCHY IS KILLING OUR PLANET.. we see that our relentless plunder of our own planetary life-support systems, correlates with our unnerving tendency to divide, exclude and 'Otherize', often in ways that are so insidious we find it difficult, even painful, to acknowledge these processes. But to this day, one of the most ever-present yet still unacknowledged processes is patriarchy. http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2790589/patriarchy_is_killing_our_planet_women_alone_can_save_her.html

NAMIBIA'S QUIET "ZEBRA SYSTEM" GENDER EQUITY REVOLUTION: Namibia's Gender Equity Revolution aims for 50 percent representation of Women in leadership positions.  A quiet gender revolution the like of which has been unseen in Southern Africa and perhaps anywhere in the world, is now firmly underway in Namibia. The ruling party, SWAPO has not only committed to filling half of its seats in parliament with women but also committed to what they call a ‘Zebra system’ whereby if a Minister is a woman then the Deputy Minister will be a man and vice versa. Even more ambitiously, the implication is that the roles will be switched in successive elections... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/92420

Women make up half the world's population, but don't nearly share half of the world's wealth, well-being and opportunity. Two-thirds of the world poor are women, disproportionally exposing women to precarious living conditions, disease and unmitigated natural disasters. The media, meanwhile, remains a male-dominated sector in much of the world, contributing to women's voices lacking a crucial amplifier to put their concerns on political agendas and unleash the development potential of their ingenuity. Rather than then stereotypical victims of local and global forces, women are also organizer, innovators, conservators and community builders. These are some of their stories. http://www.ipsnews.net/news/gender/

Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
 Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges. She blogs on Doughnut Economics at http://www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth

InterPress Service, November 28, 2014
IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 29, 2014 9:26 AM

Indeed, it's not enough to call the dollar value of what you're people are buying and selling "wealth".

 

Where are the environmental factors that will cost us money due to the loss of economic activity (thanks to weather and climatic difficulties)?  Where are the markers for well being and other aspects of human happiness?

 

Capitalism is going to kill itself off, regardless of what anyone does to try to save it in its present form.  The death has already happened, just as the roots of death are in anything that we may develop.  Either things will be eclipsed by better things, or else, they'll collapse into worse things that we'll have to dig our way out of.

 

I'd rather have things go the former way, rather than the latter.  Unfortunately, I don't have much of a say about how we achieve that.

 

So, we're stuck, thanks to the stuck brains of our leadership cadre.

 

Enjoy!

 

Think about it.

RETURN OF THE DEBTORS' PRISON?  MANY STILL JAILED FOR INABILITY TO PAY FINES. Cities across the country are increasingly turning to what are known as private probation companies to collect unpaid fines. But are indigent people ending up in jail because they can't afford to pay? Since NewsHour Weekend's first story on this issue aired last spring, the Childersburg Municipal Court issued a “standing order” stating that “In no case shall an indigent defendant be incarcerated … based solely on his or her inability to pay fines.” But the practice continues elsewhere in the country. Special correspondent John Carlos Frey takes an in-depth look at what some are calling the return of the debtors' prison. Continue reading http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/return-debtors-prison/
