Defining bioregions in these islands II – | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
I think the bioregion considered at ‘morphoregion’ scale may be a pointer here (See Kirkpatrick Sale’s Dwellers in the Land for where the concept is introduced. I mention it here:  and point towards Mark Burton’s work on Manchester/Mersey bioregion here. These won’t necessarily provide answers but might begin to shape the edges of the question space!

Sustainable Forests: Government Control vs Social Self-Organization | Synthesis

Sustainable Forests: Government Control vs Social Self-Organization | Synthesis | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
The overarching point I want to make in this article is that what I would call social governance architecture does not need to be run by or through governments. The governance of the whole sustainable forest infrastructure is widely distributed and does not run through a single, global hierarchical organisation. Indeed, PEFC would see itself as a part of the enabling environment in this domain, not as a top-down controller.

Cities worldwide are seeking to become more resilient to environmental, social, and economic shocks and stresses. However, traditional methods and existing resources often fall short of tackling today’s challenges.

Weaving Networks of Regenerative Projects – Joe Brewer –

I have recently taken a role with the Regenerative Communities Network to build a global tapestry of these real-world projects. Our vision is to bring as much of humanity as possible back into harmony with the rest of nature. We are doing this now and there’s no time to waste.

We are part of a much larger movement that has been coalescing in recent years. This article by Daniel Christian Wahl outlines the explosive growth of regeneration. The photo at the top of this essay shows the Global Ecovillage Network. Add to it the landscape restoration projects of Ecosystem Restoration Camps, new economic practices being embedded in Transition Towns around the world, spread of regenerative farming across the hubs of Savory Institute, and the launch of bioegional projects to coordinate entire regions and you begin to glimpse what is possible today.

Scaling Social Justice: A Latinx Immigrant Worker Co-op Franchise Model | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Can worker co-ops be franchised in Latinx immigrant communities? In New York City, a nonprofit with a strong co-op development track record is giving it a try. Focusing on cleaning and childcare, the co-ops developed are providing a living wage alternative to what are often exploitative low-wage industries.

Most Public Engagement Is Worse Than Worthless — | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Nothing good comes of public engagement in which the public isn’t asked questions they can meaningfully contribute to answering. This is not how you build a trusting relationship: a strong foundation on which to work together. This is how you corrode trust.

Toward a Matrix of People Engagement | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Throughout the People-Led Innovation Methodology, we make an effort to tap into the distributed expertise of people. Yet determining with whom to collaborate, and at which stage, can be difficult, especially since plans for engagement need to be fixed early in the process. Context varies between cities, the nature of a problem, and the people themselves.
