This site represents one idea for making the world work for 100% of humanity, and it doesn't change much. In general to get to the world working for 100% we need a bunch of people to do everyday things better!
So I made a site that will be a resource of the best way to do things. Ways that are better for you and better for the world.
I called it The Story of Stuff You Can Do! dot com
I really like 'The Story of Stuff', but I don't feel like they give you a good list of things you can do. I asked them to make it but they didn't reply, so I just made it :)
Check it out, and help me out, send in guest posts or suggestions
My friends often ask me for advice on 'tech' because they know I like to keep up to date with what's new, but these days when people ask me "What's the next new thing to get", I'm not telling them anything about 'tech', I'm telling them "Mindfulness :)".
it's definitely not new, but I think it's the next big thing. It has so many benefits, to our health and well being, and maybe surprisingly, to our productivity that I think it's going to be the next big thing. I knew I was on to something when I saw 'mindful eating' posters in the cafeteria at work. Below is a nice little primer on the subject.
And below that is a very inspiring talk on fish farming. I feel like I've only heard dire predictions about the future of fish, but this talk gives some hope. But I think the only way to make this a success is if the consumers demand it. Ask where your fish comes from, let them know where you want it to come from, and if you find a good source, support them and tell other people!
The founder of Global Citizen has his TED Talk released recently, and it sounds like an org I need to be a part of. It's trying to tackle lots of issues at once, educate lots of people, and use the readers to apply pressure on the concerns that
I don't know if they know anything about Bucky but they seem to be thinking pursuing goals in a new way, with lots and lots of .
1) Tell people what to do
2) They have a reward pushing people to do more
3) They even had Chris Martin adorn their shirt while playing a t the super bowl
I really hope I can get in touch with them and help them become a household name.
Wish me luck :)
I don't know any more details than this talk, but it seems like this lady saved us from a future where big corporations would have way too much control over the building blocks of life. She seems to eliminated patents on genes.
A lot of people seem to be wearing superhero t-shirts these days, they probably wish they could be superman or captain america, but I don't think they realize they could. I think Tania Simoncelli is a good example, she saw a bunch of problems, picked the worst and figured out how to fix it. It looked impossible, but that just seemed to make her prepare harder. Just amazing!
I'm sure she had a lot of help and maybe the monument should celebrate a bunch of people, I have no idea, I'm just grateful for the work they did on this.
Here's an economist that is trying to make the world work for 100% of humanity!
She's got a doughnut diagram for all the factors that should be considered in every endeavour. It's brilliant!
"This diagram in a way captures the challenges we face in the 21st century, that challenge being, how can we assure that every human being has the resources they need to meet their human rights? But then collectively we do it within the means of this one planet."
If you go to iTunes you should be able to find a 53 minute podcast under RSA Audio. If you can't find that check out the shorter version below.
Here's a great talk that I felt drives the issue of climate change home better than the rest.
This lady and her team were able to break through the paperwork and processes that have broken social services and make it work. I think her work could be applied to the corporate world and the rest of the world and make the world work (for 100% of humanity!).
Nancy Lublin is an inspirational person involved with some inspiring organizations!
A great talk, with some really good advice. I can't believe it doesn't have more views.
Here's his website
I'm always finding interesting videos and articles, so I thought I'd share them.
