I'm Not Creative?


By Jeff Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and Clayton M. Christensen  via HBR Blog Network
Did you know that if you think you are creative, you're more likely to actually be creative? This surprising fact pops up again and again in our research. In our database of over 6,000 professionals who have taken the Innovator's DNA self & 360 assessments, people (entrepreneurs and managers alike) who "agree" with the survey statement "I am creative" consistently deliver disruptive solutions — by creating new businesses, products, services, and processes that no one has done before.

Before you start pushing for smarter cities, it helps to know exactly what you’re advocating for.

Urban Agriculture - World Food Day


Five Examples of Successful Urban Agriculture Done Differently Around the World

by foodtank.org

These five projects are not the only examples of worldwide efforts to bring attention to growing populations and food systems, but represent the different forms that urban agriculture can take. (Bridget Hildebrandt).

As the global population approaches nine billion by the year 2050, nourishing the world and preserving diminishing environmental resources presents a daunting challenge.
