The World We Explore- Sir Ken Robinson Zeitgeist Americas 2012
Alternative Energy and Fuel News: Is There a Future in Solar Boats? One of the highlights of this year's World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi was a tour of Planet Solar's incredible solar powered yacht — the Turanor. The largest solar powered boat ever to set sail, the Turanor is on the final leg of a round-the-world tour, the first time anyone has managed to sail around the world powered entirely by solar energy. The massive 8.5 ton boat comfortably carries a crew of a half dozen or so with plenty of room to host a dockside party for 100.
‘Jackson Pollock’ models for leadership In his keynote, Andrew Jones shared an interesting analogy for thinking about leadership models. Such models are often depicted in the form of neat coloured boxes in a hierarchy or workflow- and we saw several such diagrams during the day depicting complex, but highly organised visions for collaboration right up to local authority and national level. The problem, as Andrew put it, is that whilst much time, effort and money is spent on defining these organised models, the reality of practice on the ground usually ends up looking more like a Jackson Pollock image.

Sir Ken Robinson: Transform Education? Yes, We Must As the new members of 111th Congress wander through the building looking for their desks and lockers, it may feel for some of them like the first day at school. They should hold on to that feeling. One of the biggest challenges they face is sorting out American education. Given the recession, the dire situation in the Middle East and the general state of the planet, education is probably not at the top of their to-do list. It must be soon. Transforming education has to be at the root of everything the new administration hopes to achieve, and nothing it does in the short term will be sustainable otherwise.
