Verandering van tijdperk - Æneas, Uitgeverij van Vakinformatie

Verandering van tijdperk - Æneas, Uitgeverij van Vakinformatie | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Nederland zal de komende decennia transformeren naar een nieuwe samenleving waarin de machtsverhoudingen zoals we die nu kennen radicaal zijn omgegooid. Dit is geen idealistisch vergezicht, maar de onontkoombare uitkomst van de kantelperiode waarin Nederland zich nu bevindt. In 'Verandering van tijdperk', het vervolg op de bestseller‘In het oog van de orkaan’, beschrijft Jan Rotmans ook de nieuwe sectoren onderwijs en financiën en geeft daarmee een compleet beeld van Nederland in transitie. Rode draad is dat alle maatschappelijke sectoren hun houdbaarheidsdatum naderen, omdat de mens niet langer centraal staat. Mensen ontwikkelen zelf alternatieven en voeren die uit. Samen vormen zij de beweging van onderop, essentieel voor de transitie naar een beter aangepaste samenleving en economie.

Imagine a world where urbanization and a desire for healthy living result
in next-level products like pockets embedded with a silver-based,
antimicrobial nanotextile that sanitizes your hands on the go, or pots and pans that broadcast your every pancake flip and soup stir, or a rewards card that measures your credibility and trust for the sharing economy.

The Great God Pan Is Dead: Creatives in a Post-Industrial Society

The Great God Pan Is Dead: Creatives in a Post-Industrial Society | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

My next stop was a place I had never heard of, Pioneer Works Center of Art and Innovation, down in a neighborhood in Brooklyn called Red Hook. I was going to see a show of photos by Mark Hogancamp. I got on the number 4 train on the Upper East Side and took a long ride to downtown Brooklyn. From there, I got on the B61 bus. No subway went anywhere near Red Hook, as far as I could tell. But the bus put me within a few blocks of my destination. It was along trip--I hoped it would be worth it. It didn't seem like an especially artsy neighborhood at first glance, and I almost walked right past the anonymous red brick building that houses Pioneer Works.
