The SDGs, the New Cornerstone of the Sustainability Agenda

The SDGs, the New Cornerstone of the Sustainability Agenda | grassroots innovation | Scoop.it
SDGs are here to stay – They will shape the sustainability agenda for the next 15 years. SDGs are only 2 years old: although somewhat complicated and sometimes confusing – especially for companies - they are rising above other sophisticated standards (GRI, ISO 26000) and they are here to stay. The UN is going to put in a lot of efforts to support them. New guidelines have been released during the conference to help decipher the SDGs and before long everyone will be talking about them. Hence do not have misgivings about the SDGs, you would have no other alternatives but to get into it.

Innovation & Imagination: 12 Benefits Of Creativity - TeachThought

Innovation & Imagination: 12 Benefits Of Creativity - TeachThought | grassroots innovation | Scoop.it
“Without imagination and investigation of ideas our collective fund of knowledge would languish. We do need assessments to determine what students learn and understand, but we can incorporate imagination in the creation of those assessments to insure that students’ creative thoughts and higher executive functions are incorporated into their assessment experiences,” said Dr. Judy Willis in Planning For Creativity: 4 Simple Strategies You Can Master. Creativity should be encouraged alone with technical knowledge since the two go hand in hand.

And maybe more importantly, creativity infuses life with a different sort of depth and richness. As Osho said, “To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”

Creatives, Non-Linear Thinkers and So-Called Misfits

Creatives, Non-Linear Thinkers and So-Called Misfits | grassroots innovation | Scoop.it

The idea of the misfit worker occurred to me when I considered the challenge of bringing together individuals whose unique identities and contributions had been critiqued for so long that they were 'burned' by the concept of collaboration. How might we start to welcome them into a less-critical innovation or creative team?


Good ideas arise when people are given space to truly explore, in-depth, a particular train of thought. Susan Cain's recently-released Quiet details the challenge of introspection in the modern work environment. As she describes it, the prevailing concepts of what's best in the workplace are premised on the often-incorrect theory that group discussion and constant collaboration are the best way to solve problems. Instead, she suggests that we consider the extensive research which shows that better-quality ideas—especially those related to complex problems involving a lot of variables—require time and nuance to develop.

The Sharing Economy Lacks A Shared Definition

The Sharing Economy Lacks A Shared Definition | grassroots innovation | Scoop.it

You may have noticed the terms “sharing economy,” “peer economy,” “collaborative economy,” and “collaborative consumption” being used synonymously. Ideas like “crowdsourcing,” the “maker movement,” and “co-creation” are being thrown into the mix. The space is getting muddy and the definitions are being bent out of shape to suit different purposes. So, do I think these terms have different meanings? Yes. Are their common core ideas that explain the overlap? Absolutely.

 

People have asked me why I have not publicly clarified this earlier. To be honest, it is hard to do so without being accused of trying to “defend” a term. The words used concern me less than how they are being defined, and the core meaning of the space being misunderstood. Definitions are hard, especially when they are trying to capture new ideas never expressed before. As Bertrand Russell famously once said: “Everything is vague to a degree you do not realize until you have tried to make it precise.” When I first began writing about this space nobody knew how big it might get. Its growth and expanding nature are, for the most part, a good thing but we need clear definitions that will enable us to move forward with a common understanding.

Good news from Germany: A 'global transformation of values has already begun'

Good news from Germany: A 'global transformation of values has already begun' | grassroots innovation | Scoop.it

Overview of the 400-page report World in Transition: A Social Contract for Sustainability from the German Advisory Council on Climate Change (WGBU), the heavyweight scientific body that advises the German Federal Government on ‘Earth System Megatrends'.

‎"A key conclusion here is that ‘individual actors and change agents play a far larger role as drivers of transformation’ than they’ve been given credit for in the past.

The most effective change agents, states the report, ‘stimulate the latent willingness to act by questioning business as usual policies’. They also put open questions and challenges on the agenda, and embody alternative practices in the ways they work.

Change agents, the think tank finds, ‘tend to frequent the margins of society where unorthodox thinkers and outsiders are to be found’."
