Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog

Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Changer de paradigme : passer de la « corporate social responsibility » à la « creation of shared value ».

 

Il y aurait d’un côté la valeur économique, et de l’autre les valeurs sociales, les deux n’entrant que très rarement en contact – sauf pour une lutte à mort.

C’est à cette vision binaire que s’est attaqué Michael Porter, un des professeurs de stratégie d’entreprise les plus reconnus dans le monde, en faisant paraitre, à l’étonnement général, en 2011 un article fondamental intitulé « Creating shared value » dans la Harvard Business Review. Il y faisait deux constats principaux.

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn?

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Are mistakes a part of the learning process? If they are, what does this say about our current education system? This post explores these ideas, asking the following questions and following each with a number of responses that explores each question in greater detail. The first section has two questions:

* Why are mistakes important to achieve engagement and learning?

* Why do we avoid mistakes in our current model?

The second section, Turning Mistakes into Learning Opportunities asks one question:

* How can we use learning errors to our advantage?

At the beginning of this post the author speaks of James Joyce, and also does so at the end where she states (referring to Joyce) "a true genius sees all learning as an opportunity to improve and discover. Errors are taken at will. In making mistakes, we can reach new heights and find our true genius." Will schools move in this direction?

Rifkin énumère les cinq piliers de sa vision : la convergence entre une révolution énergétique et un nouveau mode de communication (Internet), une distribution décentralisée d'une énergie distribuée par des millions de bâtiments devenus microcentrales électriques, le stockage de l'énergie renouvelable par l'hydrogène, l'intégration des réseaux d'énergies par les technologies du Web et le transport de l'électricité. « Il faudra créer beaucoup d'emplois pour monter les nouvelles infrastructures.

How an Industrial City Reinvented Itself as a Sustainability Hub

How an Industrial City Reinvented Itself as a Sustainability Hub | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

The city of Nantes, the fifth largest in France, is a place of rich history dating back at least as far as the second century.  Economically, Nantes was long a port and shipbuilding center of considerable significance. 
But the shipping and shipbuilding industry in western Europe began a serious decline in the 1960s and 70s, and the last major shipbuilding facility in Nantes closed in 1986. 
The proud city needed a new identity in order to remain relevant. That new identity became, first, culture and then, sustainability. Today the two have come together in some highly innovative ways that have led the European Union to designate Nantes as its "Green Capital" for 2013.

The EU’s annual green designation was created by the European Commission in the last decade, with Stockholm selected as the first honoree, for 2010. The prestigious competition involves a lengthy application process and is judged on the basis of twelve overlapping environmental criteria:

Response to climate change
Transportation
Urban green spaces
Land use
Nature and biodiversity
Air quality
Noise pollution
Waste reduction and management
Water consumption
Wastewater treatment
Green municipal management
Dissemination of best practices

The 2013 award for Nantes included specific praise for the city’s efforts regarding climate, transportation, water, and biodiversity...
