  • Cooking the Climate

    Greenpeace published a report last week, entitled Palm oil: Cooking the Climate explaining many of the largest food and fuel companies risk climate change disaster, by driving the demand for palm oil and biofuels grown on the world's greatest peat deposits.

    'Unilever, Cargill, Nestlé, Kraft, Procter & Gamble, as well as all leading UK supermarkets, are large users of Indonesian palm oil, much of which comes from the province of Riau in Sumatra, where an estimated 14.6bn tonnes of carbon - equivalent to nearly one year's entire global carbon emissions - is locked up in the world's deepest peat beds.'

  • The (Social Innovators) Hub

    Heating, lighting, chairs and desks. Walk around phones and voicemail you can pick up from the bath. Machines for scanning, faxing, copying, printing, posting and projecting. Spaces for meeting, working, reading and playing. You can be here by the hour, the day or the month.

    The Hub is a multi-sited network of physical and virtual spaces connecting social innovators around the world. You can find them in London, Johannesburg, Rotterdam, Bristol and Sao Paulo. Fabulous!

    The kitchen is a highly complex place, a permanent "MAKING OF" - a workshop for the senses. - The Farm Project

    The Farm Project, designed by Mike Meiré transformed the kitchen into a barn-like, “real-life” stage, charged with aromas, animals, plants and objects – and with an outer cover made of a patchwork of materials. A beautiful exploration of design and living. Click here to watch a video of the project.

    London based Ethical Media helps organisations to innovate and manage their reputations in a climate of change.

Ethical Media develops "communication strategies and tools designed to provide real leadership, dialogue and learning around social and environmental issues impacting organisations today."

    Worth checking out their projects, collaborations and latest news.

  • Get your ethical/social project up and running

    Community, Communication Design

    Do you have a project that aims to create public or social benefit, rather than money? Perhaps you are planning a green exhibition or art workshops in your local community? London's ECCA are hosting an event on November 15th, entitled "How to get your ethical/social project up and running".

    From 2pm at Chelsea College of Art & Design, the event will teach you what you need to get going and give you some key tips for survival. You'll learn from a range of people that have been there and done it very successfully.

    Speakers include:

  • Traditional versus Modern knowledge

    Well-being, Environmental Design

    The more I visit and meet rural people, the higher my respect for their knowledge rises. It amazes me that we from the cities and academies regard them as uneducated, illiterate and "subjects" for our "expert" inputs. Much of their knowledge and expertise is not in the form that we would recognize (as in "notice") or recognize (as in "award"), because it is embodied. However, they are masters at being resourceful, innovative, living light and being content—what else could one ask for? And isn't it ironic that despite our high knowledge and technical expertise, we are struggling to achieve precisely the same ends?
