The Globe – global education in a complex world

It was once upon a time that people were born perfectly good enough. In this educational project this is our reality. We are not proclaiming to capture eternity in the Greek understanding from Alpha to Omega, nor to be the best educational project in the univers – our goal is to be a beta and to accept that IT never will be finnished.

In the complex world we live in, we accept that we live or do at a level of “beta” ….so that IT will always be space for improvements.

This photo is from NASA and show interactive educational video of our Globe – or Gaia, as the Greek would have expressed it in the time when Eratosthenes was the chief librarian at the ancient Library of Alexandria. He was recognized as the father of geography and was nicknamed ‘beta’ for his different skills in many directions. This is what we need right now – art must synthesize with science, and business with education, so we together can create our small learning villages in this complex and paradoxical time.

360hub Global  and Pufferfish Display will do a ‘beta’ of this unique Globe during The Climate Festival 112, from 18 – 28 January 2017.

The theme  will be OUR OCEANS. If you follow is link to Vimeo you will see a video and the beta-version The Globe and the different  NASA films about our oceans.

The local films from the community of Molde will telling different stories why we love our  local community and our love for nature. The city symbol for Molde is the whale, and this will be displayed on The Globe. In this way a very unique local part of the city identity will be connected to the global story of our oceans.

Our small village is still not a perfect in the terms of Circular Economy, we are on this level on ‘beta’. On our local Globe we will display more than 10 different companies busy in their work for a more sustainable world, and to bring forward this educational project.

Science meet art and busy-ness for a better understanding of our complex world. Welcome to join our ‘beta’ for a better world!

Impact Molde – small villages & circle economies.

Impactmolde_237

Imagine how much impact a small group of people can have! Imagine that the world as you know it is changing in front of our eyes – for the worse and for the better. Crises manifest fast and most of the time to our surprise. The character of change has accelerated and changed its dynamic. Nowadays, even the good stuff will have the embodied impulse of manifestation faster than you think. Miracles? Magic? No, not at all! The impact of people living apart and united in spirit: a deep commitment of driving positive impact for humanity.

For us an Impact Journey is an act of traveling from one place to another, coming into contact with- and having a positive (in)direct effect on someone and the environment. Hereby the process of change and development is key, with an emphasis on aftercare.

The creative capital – the social capital – in synergy with social media with impact Facebook and Google Plus give the free change agents and social entrepreneurs the tools to connect, to write, to tell, to share and to the impact of synergies beyond our common sense.

It is the new stories of connecting people. It is an co-creation of a web of hashtags of what works.
It is a togetherness from all paths of life:

Molde – a small city in Norway – had its impact webast in July. It is part of the Nordic Impact Summer 2016, accelerated into a crescendo during The Nordic Impact Week in San Francisco – Oakland – Silicon Valley and Bay, 10-16th September 2016. Molde is just one city among many – nothing special as such. Still very unique and important. All small cities, villages and growthpoints are! How and what can we learn?

The Impact Molde Model – a city as a Learning Stage.
1. A city festival as a stage to leverage the idea of “YES, we are a city of circular economy!”
The Molde International Jazz Festival is a showroom and a learning stage for creative and social capital, leverage with frivillighet.
2. Run with business operating already in Circular Economy – normal garbage problems to be solved, and a municipality level.
3. Kick-start – partnership across industries and sectors
4. Take a lead in trend industries like fashion- and sportswear.
5. Food – zero wast policy – make people join and to create conscious relationship to seeds and the deeper values of our food systems.
6. Play along with the leading sports association in the city, define commitment for participation.
7. Have meetings and use free social media.
8. Start a training network on Social Media
9. Go commercial – go fun – go trend!
10 Let it be “space” to improvise and to let people take a lead – take part – for dynamic feeling of “we do not know it all”.

We welcome to share your perspectives, to improve on this list and to take part in the high-speed-acceleration of Circular Economy through global pop-cultur, football and the happy joy of a village celebration.
