This publication focuses on one of the most challenging questions in the coming decennia: how can we feed, house, clothe and transport two billion more people in the 20 - 30 years ahead within the ecological limits of our planet? Today, in Europe, we are consuming the equivalent of 2.8 planets’ worth of natural resources, yet we only have one planet. Business as usual is not an option. Innovative solutions and adequate measures to mitigate the impact of a growing demand for natural resources are more needed than ever.

Behr is a street-artist active from the age of 18 years, which comes from the world of graffiti traditional but always fond of Futurism and broadcast by HBO Dadaism.

His installations are amazing collage of cardboard, packing tape and plastic bags, that invade public and private places, changing and completely altering the perception of space.

Anywhere in the world that has a climate which is changeable over the seasons usually has its fair share of windy conditions. Even in mild and calm places the air actually moves a lot more than you may think.

In the UK, we have some of the most suitable weather for different types of renewable energy systems to work at their best. Although both solar and tidal power are renewable energy sources which are being put to good use already, it is wind power that has made the biggest impact on the general awareness of clean power generation.

Loosely based on the 1915 adventure novel The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan, the film is about a man in London who tries to help a counter-espionage agent prevent an organisation of spies called The 39 Steps from stealing top secret information. When the agent is killed and he stands accused of the murder, he goes on the run with an attractive woman to save himself and stop the spy ring.

As society developed throughout the 20th century, public drinking water has come a long way. However, there are still many risks associated with drinking water from the tap. As public water systems cater to larger populations with each passing year, is drinking city water worth the risk? - See more at: http://www.pelicanwater.com/blog/the-miracle-of-clean-water-infographic/#sthash.nXNkgBjC.dpuf

Understanding social and public labs

Social innovation & labs

  Understanding social and public labs



 This note summarises a view of the field of innovation labs - and what might lie ahead. It looks at the ways in which labs need to be both insiders and outsiders at the same time – and the practical challenges of the classic ‘radical’s dilemma’. If they stand too much inside the system they risk losing their radical edge; if they stand too far outside they risk having little impact. It follows that the most crucial skill they need to learn is how to navigate the inherently unstable role of being both insiders and outsiders; campaigners and deliverers; visionaries and pragmatists.

This  paper looking at the various social and public labs I’ve come across around the world.


It suggests a typology for understanding them and describes some of the challenges they face – in particular, the radical’s dilemma of having to work both inside and outside established systems.
