How to save the world...by giving power to well-defined communities?

HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD?......A tad tongue in cheek, perhaps and certainly trying not to take ourselves too seriously but we do think about big issues. A lot. The more we think about it, work on it, do…Continue

An excellent thought Julie. The artists' colony in Lewes I'm a member of is full of ladies debating such things and organising natural childbirth things amongst themselves.

 One of my big issues is the high birth mortality rate in some developing countries. I regulary go onto Yale on-line and attend one of their lectures and have passed this link on to loads of friends too. Recently on-line I was able to view a lecture delivered by the head of Italian Classics at Yale, great stuff and completely accessible to me, my idea was if it is so easy why cannot community workers in remote parts of the world have access to learning something like midwifery?, there are some language barriers etc but nothing insurmountable and its no extra hassle for the lecturer who is giving the lecture anyway. Might make a big difference as all that would be needed is some IT know how and a load of goodwill.

One tool required - and much needed - is that trust. We need to increase the levels of trust in most spheres of activity.
FastCompany magazine has an article on that today at:

W have been following the "Smart Cities" project for a long time. It was started by Ericcson, and a lot of very interesting work has already been done.
There's a page you can use to view a movie/status report which has been heavily updated from the original versions, and which breaks the material into 20 minute segments. Some thought provoking stuff - aimed at a Networked Society.

Ethos Connect - Learning to scale Ethos efficiently

Posted by Annabelle Lambert on July 18, 2014 at 10:14 0 Comments

Earlier this year we laid down the gauntlet to ourselves to grow the Ethos Network to several thousand partners by November 2018, all part of our ambition to meet our growth challenge for the same period. In the last year we have achieved steady growth to over 40 partners, but to reach our target we accept we need to become a lot more efficient at finding new Ethos partners in their thousands. With this in mind, we had an idea that if we could share an opportunity to tell the Ethos Story through our vision and our partners stories and explain what it’s like to work with Ethos to 100 people in one go that would certainly be a step towards efficiency. Before taking on the full 100 we decided to run a pilot event, which became our first Ethos Connect event, held on Wednesday 9th July. 30+ potential partners attended and were hosted by 20+ current Ethos Partners, and all participated in a fun, interactive evening at the Union Jack Club near Waterloo. We were also very lucky enough to be supported by Euan Semple, internet and social media expert, who kindly shared some of his thoughts and experience, and moderated and hosted various parts of the evening.

Feedback from the pilot event has been both very positive AND has enabled us to learn many lessons about how to improve this idea moving forward.

Positive - in the sense that everyone had fun and many left the event wanting to know more with the first follow up sessions being scheduled.

Many…
