Greenhouses: from Shanghai to Yangjuan

by Lise on Tuesday, 27 March 2007 Comments
Networks link people and groups, allowing for exchange of resources and information.

Within knowledge networks, “information” becomes “knowledge”, allowing a group to think and to act together.

The globalization of issues such as environment, violence, international trade and workers’ rights induces people to connect to groups that share similar concerns.

Capacity for learning, room for discussion, and openness in membership, discussion and sharing are requisites for the efficacy of the network.

The flexibility of the network helps it to facilitate exchanges, action and empowerment.

The debate on climatic change shows that scientific conclusions are themselves reached through the nurturing of a permanent network of information and debate.

The policy debate is nurtured by networks of citizens, experts and companies. Interconnection between these groups helps to go from traditional lobbying to innovative networking

The mobilization of cultural resources for nurturing sustainable is exactly what a knowledge network might want to achieve.

What are the knowledge networks that I am presently engaged into?

What kind of knowledge networks does my environment need, and may I be instrumental in fostering such alliances?

Our participation in knowledge networks should encourage us to become active citizens of a world whose destiny will be determined by the quality and intensity of our interactions.

Knowledge Network might also need some Spiritual Empowerment
