"If the justice system does not allow changes, we will then change that system" | Insights | HiiL | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Around the world, legal systems and legal professionals, as well as social entrepreneurs are challenged with delivering more justice, to more people but with fewer resources. Innovations in the ready-made garment industry are helping global supply chains with the growing pressure of providing stable and fair conditions to its workers. We need more innovators who are up to the task. Governments, corporations and NGOs also need to learn how to work with them to strengthen their effectiveness, impact and return on investment.

Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 | Kathmandu Living Labs

Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 | Kathmandu Living Labs | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 Posted on May 17, 2015 by ktmlabs When the first earthquake struck on April 25th, the Kathmandu Living Labs team quickly joined together and worked long hours on mapping needs and relief efforts. After two weeks at this furious pace, the team felt that things were starting to return to normal. Our hours slowed, and we were somewhat burned out. We got back to our normal routine of playing futsal as a team. Then on May 12th, another large 7.4 earthquake hit us. Like many in Nepal, who had started thinking that life might go back to normal again, we were discouraged. We had worked so hard, but here we were again in the same position we started. Many of our team members had to spend time taking care of their family and their homes after the 2nd quake, and our spirits were low. On top of it, we were told that we could no longer continue situation room from the same space for safety reasons. An old building, it had been damaged in the first quake, and then continued to be more and more damaged with each aftershock. Now with everything else, where would we go?
