Lo-fi solution for places where technology is not prevalent.  A mural is painted on a safe, trusted public space, it asks simply: "How Safe Are We All Feeling? On one side "I Feel Safe," on the other "I Think Danger is Coming."

50,000 Estonians get together and do in one day what it would have taken the government 3 years and 22 million euros to do - clean up all the garbage in their country.

Women are running the planet, they are simply not being recognized for it. From Bangladesh to Kabul, Papua New Guinea to the Amazon, women are the backbone of culture, society and in many cases, industry. Yet...they still in many cases have to hide i

One of the big inhibitors that I see in our governmental work right now is inertia bred through fear of failure. Innovation is a series of learnings that only come from experimentation and failure needs to be embraced as such: part of a learning jour

Paul commented on Hold Seasonal "Open House" Days at Local Farms

Hi Rachel: I was in the same group as Ben, and agree that your concept generated a lot of positive discussion and interest. The most exciting part was having an actual farmer in the room who is already doing this, so it really validated what you are suggesting. Great work, thank you for your participation. Very cool!

Paul commented on A celebration of imperfection

Hi David: I ran the group that explored this idea at the workshop - we all really loved it as a concept. One build was to explore the idea of heirloom varietals - rather than just celebrating imperfection, celebrate food diversity. Perhaps there is a call to action, along the lines of "Australia, Time To Reclaim Your Heirlooms," that asks the nation to look more broadly at what "good" food looks and tastes like. Agree with your idea of using celebrity chef-dom to push this - here in Australia, Masterchef is huge, so a "Masterchef Heirloom Challenge" could be really exciting. Thanks so much for your passionate involvement in this - it's a really great concept.
