Since last time I wrote up the #changeblogger meme response, so many things have changed, that even the write-up two months ago have become obsolete in some sections. This brings me to a total extreme write-over, first and foremost to increase clarity that has come from interaction from some of my deep peers and key-connections, in plain English called friends - for real! Ah, and yeah, things changing all the time for a changeblogger? Well, naturally, of course ;).
What is one change - big or small, local or global - you want to see in your lifetime?
Seeing millions of sustainopreneurial ventures and events take place, big and small, local and global, virtual and physical, for the benefit of the billions of people, everywhere. With the largest number being small, local and offline with a big, global and virtual connection and mindset. Sustainopreneurship is ALL about change to make the world a better place - so it is all the way reflecting the spirit of the meaning of "changeblogger" when blogging away this topic! The agenda is big enough to create millions of businesses for the benefit of the billions of people - and planet - to turning the world's biggest problems to even larger business opportunities. If I need to prioritize within which areas, I would refer to my SEEDS Model - Strengthening of Health, Education, Entrepreneurship, Digital Unification and Sustainable Distributed Energy and Mobility. Poverty. Climate Change. Water and Food Security. Health issues at large - reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, sleeping disease, preventing pandemics. Clean production, consumption, tech, water, energy. Communication for all. You name it. Solutions are captured within these SEEDS areas. Maybe to call it The Business of Peace-making in the end, tackling all the root causes in a broadest applied spectrum at deeply rooted local level?
Who is already working this issue that you think others should support?
So support me ;).
And that is not an act of shameless self-promotion, rather to support the work I do to make leverage to the sustainopreneurial movement at large, e. g. things I focus and point to with those making a change already - change makers I find along the way and blog about. Help them out. Blog their work. Use your sphere of influence to give them a helping hand. For some inspirational case stories, see the SEEDS Innovation Fund web. And that is so far beyond 'me' it can be. 'We'. For real. The Family of Humanity.
How are you going to use your Web/tech/marcom skills to further this cause? (Or, what are you already doing that works?)
I have defined six action areas with ventures rolling out in part parallel, part serial process, with my own practical down-to-earth contribution. The prioritized, here and now -
to get the primary SLICE Service and Publishing ("Sustainopreneurial Lecturing, Inspiration, Consultancy and Events" - my freelancing brand at http://www.slice.nu) project focused reaching success - getting the virtual freelancing platform and space Ki-Work Category Marketplace Sustainability Entrepreneurship empowered with 75 Category Experts (see press release).
to have the research venture ÆREAS ("Association for Enactive Research, Education and Application of Sustainopreneurship") constituted, finding 150 Founding Members, with the Virtual Community "Sustainopreneur's Café" as its home, with http://www.aereas.nu and http://www.sustainopreneurship.org as the two destinations for the web and community for the interim association, and
In the central, though, in order to get even more leverage, spread, speed and power for the issue through my SLICE-Published blog; Notes from a Sustainopreneur - the blog you're reading now - covering the Why, What and How of Sustainopreneurship. And where I will use ALL thinkable and unthinkable social media tools and approaches both in spreading the idea and concept (e. g. spreading it through a Conceptual Campaign), developing (writing up a book through some tools) and concrete venturing (using collaborative tools and communication engines in the process, internally and externally). Social media is a key to create leverage for the movement!
