The challenge is to establish large enough service platforms so cities can learn by doing. Our smaller and lighter scouter.fi and our Future Ready city process is aimed the same goal.

Excellent holistic appraisal of the Venezuelan dillema (in Spanish). Corrupt and corruptible by design, the process is leading to needlessly abysmal outcomes no matter who are the players. Yet as Lander points out, the system design and deeper contextual issues are not shaping the debate of what needs to happen. ...How can the process be nudged to emerge a truly sustainable and prosperous reality that provides the very possible wellbeing of people and all living things?

“So I went to the forestry department,” Rinaudo recalled. “And I said, ‘Look, what you’re doing isn’t working. You have a forest guard at the entrance to every city, but the wood comes in anyway. Would you let us try something? If you give people permission to harvest trees, we will teach them to take care of them.’ ” As it turned out, the foresters were easier to convince than the farmers. “We had ten or twelve in as many villages who agreed to try it out,” Rinaudo said. “They were ridiculed and laughed at. As soon as it looked like the idea was taking root, people would come in at night and cut the trees back down.” The real battle wasn’t against the Sahara, he discovered, but against people’s ideas. “If we could change their minds, we could change everything.”
