Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project

Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

The way it is usually told, the message Everything is Connected to Everything Else is not fun to hear. It is intended to cause repentance and reformation. More often, of course, it causes guilt, fear, and an uncontrollable urge to avoid environmentalists.

What we are rarely told is that solutions are as interconnected as problems. One good environmental action can send out waves of good effects as impressive as the chain of disasters that results from environmental evil.

Good reminder of the power of both/and. When it comes to solutions to problems acceptance of both/and is often the key to finding the third alternative
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 11, 1:36 PM
Hannah Arendt contended that action is what transcends the space and time we exist in. Teaching is that way. What happens in this moment can transcend space and time, finding new solutions and creating new problems unexpectedly. If we teach children to be environmentally aware, it is a gift that will find its way into the future.

Don Idhe proposed that humans have always lived and worked with tools. Heidegger returned to the etymological roots of the word technology (techne + logos), which is about a wise and practical conversation with, through, and about our tools.

Unlike fish, humans have the capacity to realize the world they live in has tools that can become taken-for-granted. They have the capacity to untether themselves and think about the consequences of being tethered to their tools. Heidegger argued we should not blindly fight against or simply accept.
