  12. 12. 2 Happy At Last. Gallup Poll Contributed by Fred Dust The predominant means of measuring national success is a financial metric. Some countries however have started making a shift from purely monetary means of measuring the health of their nations.
  13. 13. 2 Happy At Last. Gallup Poll Contributed byHow might wetruly measure and valuewell-being as much as GDP? Vincent Cheng Studies show that GDP growth produces diminishing returns for our life satisfaction and happiness. Other factors, like social relations, health, meaningful work, freedom, etc. become far more important for our overall wellbeing.

  15. 15. 3 Who’s Next? Bridge International Academics (Nairobi, Kenya) Contributed by Sandy Speicher Bridge International Academies are low-cost private schools rapidly scaling in africa. They’ve innovated the space with a “School In a Box” model, planning to have 1800 schools under their umbrella by 2015.
  16. 16. 3 Who’s Next? Bridge International Academics (Nairobi, Kenya) Contributed byHow might werapidly innovate education tofoster the next generation? Adam Hueniken There is a severe lack of design and innovation education throughout many schooling systems. How can we encourage them to provide more opportunities to learn about the power of innovation and design?
  17. 17. 3 The Discussion Johan Löfström they have going on there. Really interesting November 24, 2010, 08:15PM and definitely the type of thing I think we need Feel free to add information about a project to see more of. that I wrote about, Innovation plant It is written as comments in an inspiration made by user : Nicole (scroll down to the bottom) http://openideo.com/open/what-is-the- global-challenge-that-most-concerns-you- right-now-and-that-global-innovation- leaders-could-begin-to-solve/inspiration/ interdisciplinary-incubators/ PABLO QUINTERO November 29, 2010, 06:17AM Hey man, very good point there and we definitely need everyone to apply creative thinking in every field, the only thing i’d like to add is that i personally believe that even though i agree with you saying that children should be exposed to creative thinking at an early stage, i also believe that Design itself is a profession that people chooses based on their understanding of their skills and prefer- ences, current education programs introduce a variety of subjects in order to give students a broader vision of the world and its complexities and finally giving them the choice to develop an expertise in a particular subject or profes- sion; creative thinking can be applied from any profession and therefore it should be actively encouraged in every subject being taught , but how can we do that in a more effective way that hasn’t been tried out by the educational systems already? Adam Hueniken November 29, 2010, 07:47AM Very good point Pablo. I’m definitely in agree- ment with the thought that design and innova- tion can come from any profession and area. So it’s not only providing more opportunities to design and innovate but to provide them in various different subject areas. Johan that sounds like a wonderful event that
  18. 18. 4 Not the Problem. Mahila Milan “women together” (Dharavi Slum, Mumbai) Contributed by Meena Kadri Mahila Milan means “women together” and provides a vehicle for the empowerment of women via leadership roles and advocacy alongside its pivotal daily savings collection.
  19. 19. 4 Not the Problem. Mahila Milan “women together” (Dharavi Slum, Mumbai) Contributed byHow might weenable and empower women tocreate lasting change for lowincome communities? David Griffith There’s a growing recognition in the world that focusing on women and girls is the most effective way to fight global poverty and extremism. Women and girls aren’t the problem; they’re the solution.
  20. 20. 4 The Discussion Arjan Tupan December 27, 2010, 09:17AM Important concept. The position of women is fortunately more and more being seen as important all around the world. The rise of Grameen bank and micro financing is a great example of this. Although I really feel this is an important issue, my question is if there is not already so much being done around this issue, that it might be better to take more specific action. For example how to ensure that young girls get equal access to education. Demian Repucci January 03, 2011, 09:25PM David, thanks for this concept. It is a vital issue to be dealt with. Unfortunately made all the more complex by the many and varied contexts within which women and girls are repressed and relegated. If it were simply a matter of edu- cation that would be one thing, but too often it is the environments and societies within which these women live that resist any change to the status quo. No amount of new educational resources will help if the culture in which they are delivered does not see women’s education as valuable and vital also. Positive change for women needs to happen as a change on the larger cultural, societal and religious scale if it is going to have a lasting effect on each woman and girl in that community on an individual level. Therein lies the trick, I think. Great stuff to think about and lots of opportuni- ties. Thanks for putting the concept in there!
  21. 21. 5 When Bad Things Happen. Ushahidi Contributed by Meena Kadri, Arjan Tupan, Adriana Olmos Ushahidi means ‘testimony’ in Swahili. It’s now a website used to map violence, disaster response, corruption, sexual harrassment and more in the Congo, Gaza, Chile India, Haiti, Pakistan and beyond.
