The meme of true social innovation -ACT1

My choice for ACT1 is Phillip Zimbardo.



Back in September 2008 I watched a TED video on the "Lucifer Effect", a term and idea created by Phillip Zimbardo. This idea started growing in me and making so much sense in so many situations that I was reading about and have encountered.

It really is a different and constructive way to look at human nature and the design of social systems. Human nature is not a question of just good or bad, it is dependent on the social education and… Continue

Necessity is the mother of invention- LEARN1

Innovation (often) comes from constraint (If you’ve got very few

resources, you’re forced to be very creative in using and reusing them.)

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem?
