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:http://www.fastcompany.com/3003277/trust-currency
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.See http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/networked-society/

JustPark has just raised £3.7m in 34 days on Crowdcube. It's an interesting story, using driveways and other private land to create new parking solutions.
Apparently, a study by IBM in 2011 found that 30 percent of city air pollution is caused by desperate drivers on the hunt for parking.
Good to see people deriving value from existing assets to support good work
