KARE Givers: Interculturalism- Engaging Diverse Communities

Kids from every corner of the globe attend Canadian schools; simply acknowledging this multiculturalism isn't good enough anymore. This educator asserts the need to move beyond a reciprocal appreciation of our differences toward an intercultural perspective that maximizes the social, emotional and academic potential of every student. We do this by fostering and teaching intercultural competence... the ability to effectively communicate with and learn from people of other cultures. This author introduces the Hope Wheel; an action oriented learning tool designed to support the development of respect, understanding, relationships and responsibility as students become interdependent travellers on the journey toward socio-cultural and academic competence. To help prepare our children for the realities of their future, and to function more productively within the realities of the present, educators must embrace the diversity of our world and do everything they can to help kids connect with and learn from each other.

Global Risks

Global Risks | #SocEco | Scoop.it

Economic imbalances and social inequality risk reversing the gains of globalization, warns the World Economic Forum in its report Global Risks 2012. These are the findings of a survey of 469 experts and industry leaders who worry that the world’s institutions are ill-equipped to cope with today’s interconnected, rapidly evolving risks. The findings of the survey fed into an analysis of three major risk cases: Seeds of Dystopia; Unsafe Safeguards and the Dark Side of Connectivity. The report also analyses the top 10 risks in five categories - economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technological.

 

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Geneva-based non-profit organization best known for its Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the Annual Meeting of New Champions in China (Summer Davos) and the Summit on the Global Agenda in Dubai.

Transforming water economies

Transforming water economies | #SocEco | Scoop.it
Without action, global demand for water could outstrip supply by up to 40 percent by 2030. Rapid population growth and economic development, particularly in emerging markets, will increase the need for food and energy and accelerate industrialization and urbanization, driving a corresponding increase in the need for water. At the same time, many scientists warn that temperatures may rise around the world, potentially increasing water scarcity. The climate may also become less predictable, possibly compounding the challenge by increasing

David Week's curator insight, July 7, 12:11 AM

"Communities Aren't Just Places, They're Social Networks." Indeed. They're networks before they are places. In fact, this obsession with "place" is just the designers' obsession with physical things, grudgingly moved only half a step towards the social. It's too painful for most to make the second step.
