We, i.e., individuals and organizations around the world, face unprecedented social, economic, ecological, and political challenges. Worse, we can expect these challenges to multiply in the next decades we must confront them. What’s needed are new and fresh ideas to tackle and solve today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.
There are thousands and thousands of new ideas how to confront these challenges. And yet, most of these ideas remain just that: ideas, figments of our imagination, remote from reality. This raises the questions: if we have so many ideas, why don’t we do more with them? What is necessary to follow up on them and put them to work? What’s holding us back?
AND how can we translate global concepts into local projects?
This is where i-Sparks comes in. In the i-Sparks community you can develop and review global concepts. But it doesn’t stop there. You can invite the i-Sparks community to help you translate global concepts into local projects that make an impact to your neigbhorhood and immediate life.
How can you start? Post your ideas, problems and/or projects for social change in either the IDEAS forum, on the IDEAS wall, fill out the contact form or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. i-Sparks will consolidate all input in one major IDEAS mindmap (see sample mindmap below). This way you can see in one sight what’s happening in the i-Sparks community.
