"'The Man In The Mirror'"
As a child of the '60s I followed my experiences into pharmacy. In the latter part of my career I became interested in continuous quality improvement. That eventually led to systems and complexity and their applications to improving socio-economic-political situations, especially education and urban development, as well as wellness. Over the past 10-15 years I've been involved one way or the other in trying to move the system toward collaborative, democratic solutions.
Hi, Folajoba, Being a fan of good governance I like your ideas. I'm not sure if you are already aware of the concept of "resilience" or not. If not, in one way it is being applied to governance to help connect human activity with the environment that supports us in a very flexible way that helps 'top-down' control flow and "bottom-up' innovation. Here are a couple of resources if you like to get started: GRAID - What is Resilience http://whatisresilience.org/en/what-is-resilience/ The Resilient Society (Cisco) http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en_us/about/ac79/docs/ps/The-Resilient-Society_IBSG.pdf A Framework For Resilience Based Governance of Social - Ecological Systems https://www.ecologyandsociety.org/vol18/iss1/art9/
