Among the ideas we explore include ways to transform businesses to be more organic and reflect the complexities of the modern world. We are seek to transform buisness from mechanistic to organic applying lessons from community and social enterprises.
At a recent workshop “Looking Ahead to the next Decade” we brought together a diverse group of participants under the auspices of the Social Innovation Network at the University of Wollongong. From their responses to a range of future scenarios in digital communication and coordination we are co-creating a white paper soon to be released.
Following the completion of our 2014 project resulting in the publication “Being Practical with Theory” we are now concentrating our efforts on a range of activities to support isolated seniors to engage socially and productively online for more positive ageing.
