Invitation To Speak 「說話的邀約」

There are different energies present in listening; among the strongest of these is the “invitation to speak.”

Normally, the solo time is for three nights and four days. During that time, there is no contact with other humans, one stays inside a specific circular area and often there is a simple fast from food.

Blue Economy 藍色經濟

I'd like to showcase a popular book and movement called The Blue Economy which began as a project to find 100 of the best nature-inspired innovations to create 100 million jobs within the next 10 years.  The Blue Economy aims to pragmatically transition the conventional model of perpetual industrial growth to a model of sustainably providing for basic human needs through the principle that whatever is necessary in life should be cheap, and whatever is indispensable for life should be for free.


Organic Organizations | 有機的組織設計

This month I feature an article by Gina Hinrichs titled “Organic Organization Design”, about the evolution of organizational design.  Hinrichs observes how organizations are moving from mechanistic forms to an organic forms characterized by being purpose driven, open, whole, locally focus and empowered, distributed/networked, connected, diverse, growing and changing.  Increasingly more know-how is emerging in the world about how to shape organic processes of change that demonstrate harmony, balance, integration, and ongoing evolution; are more productive and ultimately more resil


Democratic Dialogue | 民主式對話

Green Parties and civil society movements convened in Dakar, Senegal this April 2012 to discuss the world’s critical intractable issues of today, and it was at this Global Greens Congress that I experienced the connection between dialogue and democracy.  From these discussions among 400+ delegates emerged resolutions declaring our common voice on clean technology, the rights of indigenous peoples, sustainable development, LGBT rights, land justice and biodiversity, marine ecosystems, the occupy movement, Syria, Tibet, Western Sahara, Greece, and many more.  The following article
