My objective was to increase someone's food security near me.
So the question is how to help respectively whom should I support?
Generally in Germany, the country I live, and like in other industrialized countries we have no problem with food security. On the contrary we have a problem with high abundance of the food. Meanwhile, the food is usually thrown away when it doesn't look enjoyable anymore although you can still eat it. And it is so unjust because on the world there…

It's the year 2013, and the next pandemic flu has just reached my part of the world.
So what to do?!Panic?! No problem - we are prepared!
I have organized a specific team to support people in an emergency. In such situation many people need a psychological support. They have to be calm down and they need instructions to avoid their panic. We have organized a forum, where the people can put their questions about the pandemic or what to do in a difficult situation. The team consists…

It is the year 2088. I am 100 years old and I decide to pass on my elder's wisdom.
"Much has changed in life. Because of the clime change it is now possible to practice agriculture in the areas like in the north of the Scandinavia, Russia and Siberia. In the countries like central Africa it is impossible to live because of the heat and water deficiency. There was a great mass migration in the year 2050.
Novel Communication technologies have made possible that everyone in the…

Managing Panic in a Pandemic
I have chosen "Managing Panic in a Pandemic", because in my opinion this is the most important part of Crisis Communication.
In general it makes no sense spreading panic, because "panic" evokes a feeling of being out of control and this is not very helpful in a crisis situation. So trust in authorities will prevent people from panicking.
The idea behind the public trust is this: If people are concerned about something and you…

A horror scenario:
We write the year 2050. Overcrowding has negative effects on both the environment and social conditions. There is an uneven population distribution, on the earth live many older people and less young people.
The older people have problems to follow the fast technological development --> these older people are replaced in job by younger people.
Besides many jobs like a teacher are disappear in their…Continue

I have read many articles of the UN gender equality newsfeed page. There are so many problems of different types about the women's rights and other problems around the world.
It is conspicuous, that in the industrialized countries women have successfully fought for equal rights and professional opportunities that were once reserved for men. Education and knowledge play a major role. In contrast in developing countries the status of women is still low and they have no say in family…Continue

My favorite solution is from the Futurist Douglas Rushkoff. He speaks about the alternative currency systems like "complimentary currencies".
In his article "Life Dollars: Finding Currency in Community" he speaks about "Life Dollars",an electronic currency used in the Pacific Northwest. Life Dollars are not exchanged for traditional currency. Instead, members of the Exchange earn credits by performing services or providing goods to one another.
Here is an example for such…Continue

After a long time I returned from Argentina. Because of my job I spend a lot of time abroad and so I rarely see my parents, my sister and my friends. Today is a special day for me, because I celebrate a reunion with friends and my family. For this event I have all invited to my house by the sea. We make a great garden party. Nowadays most houses are built environmentally friendly. The sun provides our house with the necessary energy. The light energy is converted with the help of solar cells…Continue

In the present time everybody has a laptop, ipad or a smartphone, that is used everyday over several hours. After some time we need to connect our laptop, ipad or smartphone to the outlet.The battery goes fast all. That's pretty annoying, because you're tied to a specific space. And especially during the summer you will likely enjoy the sun.
We can combine this. We can use the thermal energy to recharge our battery of the laptop.
Like a house, we equip the front side of our laptop…

For me,it is difficult to choose a certain person as a hero.

I can well imagine that it is very difficult to follow his goal respectively his wishes, because there are many problems which can arise.
So for me is a hero a human, who doesn't readily let things get him…Continue

I live in Germany, an industrialized country. As in most industrialized countries, the people have forgotten what it is to suffer hunger. In most industrialized countries, the food is often thrown away because it no longer looks good. While many people struggle in developing countries every day to avoid dying of hunger. They are two different worlds. That’s pretty unfair!
It is our duty to ensure that no person should ever suffer in this world of hunger.
I searched the Internet,…

All secrets could change the world, each secret do it on his own way. Anyhow the secrets are closely interrelated with each other. As a social innovator, i think foremost we have to understand external circ***tances, in which people find themselves. Therefore it is important for the understanding process to observe the environment, infrastructure, culture and lives of people by being there.
The best solutions are of no use if they are not accepted by the people, living in such…
