  19. 19. thehungergames singapore GROW A BETTER FUTURE In  Panem,  the  Capitol  enforces  scarcity.  Though  there  are  a  mul,tude  of  resources  throughout  the  Districts,  though  Katniss  and  Gale   are  expert  hunters,  the  Capitol  uses  its  power  to  enforce  ar,ficial  scarcity.  This  forces  ci,zens  of  the  Districts  to  break  the  law  or  to   enter  their  names  for  the  Reaping  over  20  ,mes.  The  system  is  designed  to  keep  the  rich  in  the  lap  of  luxury  and  the  poor   scrounging  for  scraps  to  feed  their  children. Our  system  is  broken  too.  There  is  enough  food  in  the  world  to  go  around.  There  are  enough  farms,  enough  resources,  to  ensure   that  no  one  goes  hungry.  That’s  why  Oxfam  America  has  dedicated  its  GROW  campaign  to  reforming  these  systema,c  injus,ces.  It   addresses  5  major  failings  in  our  system  that  lead  to  starva,on  around  the  world.

  21. 21. Currency/Concurrency Jongosier social currency ‘...enables  collabora,on.    But  collabora,on  is  more  than   just  the  exchange  of  ideas  and  intent.    It’s  also  where   ac,ons  occur.  These  interdependent  ac,ons  are   concurrent  to  each  other  —  meaning  they  occur   simultaneously,  because  of,  and  in  spite  of  each  other.’   ...crowds  are  mo,vated  to  work  together  because  of  social  currency,  intangible  assets  that   offer  value  for  others.  But  the  mechanics  of  the  crowd  work  because  of  this  concurrency   and  collec,ve  intelligence.  Working  together  to  achieve  a  big  thing,  allows  individual   contribu,ons  to  maWer  more. In  this  increasingly  connected  world,  the  value  of  monetary  currency  is  diminished  where   the  currencies  of  social  exchange  and  collabora,on  maWer  more.    Individuals  can  self-­‐ organize  for  the  greater  purpose  of  achieving  a  collec,ve  task.’ Tuesday, 5 June, 12
