All over the world people are building a new world together. Amazing projects demonstrate hope for the future and visions of the world which is possible when we work together. In London, Brixton Village became a thriving example of what people can achieve when young entrepreneurs worked together to revitalize a fading historic arcade). Many people living their dreams together changed one corner of the world. Global Challenge in collaboration Edgeryders wants to collect examples of these important green shoots, espcially around the Baltic Sea Region. Please tell us about the amazing things you and your friends are doing, or have visited, so that we can showcase the cultural innovation which is shaping a new way of making our way in the world. We are interested in new kinds of employment, social enterprises and other projects which embody new values, cultural centres, galleries, projects and teams. If it's a place that people can visit, so much the better - take a tour in your own city or while you are travelling, and see some of the New Planet.

Where does this all go?

1) An anthology on youth, the labour market in the Baltic Sea Region to be published by Edgeryders and Global Challenge. We want to inpire one another, and others who are navigating a difficult socio-economic climate and connect them into an ever growing pool of knowledge, mutual support and opportunities for collaboration with peers through Edgeryders. It builds on work we all did together in our first book, the Edgeryders Guide to the Future for policymakers produced in collaboration with the Council of Europe last year.

2) Global Challenge and Edgeryders will be hosting a workshop on the 15th of March in Stockholm. The workshop brings together labour market and democracy researchers, people in the academia and other European experts, alongside YOU. The workshop discussions will be heavily based on the online conversation around this initiative (#baltedge). A limited number of selected contributors will be invited to the workshop, with their travel expenses covered by Global Challenge. After the workshop, we envision these contributions to be further developed into individual articles (2500 words), meant for publication with an ISBN number this year. Each article selected for publication in the book will be paid for. 

All the comments and reactions in this project group will be valid submissions for a workshop invitation, provided they are published before February 25. The more relevant your comment, and the more active you are in the conversation, the better.

Product Camp Yerevan

During @Alberto's stay in Yerevan we had the chance to visit Tumo Center and met the people behind this wonderful initiative - MarieLou and Pegor Papazians, who recommended us to meet Amoor David Avakian and I finally managed to contact him. He turned out to be a very bright person who loves Armenia and its people and is involved in several initiatives that might be interesting for our community.  Below is the short summary of the conversation we had this summer afternoon in a cafe in downtown Yerevan.

The Regeneration of Meaning

In one of his darkly observant essays on the fall of the Soviet Union and its lessons for present-day America, Dmitri Orlov advises against being a successful middle-aged man :

Building resilience in between the cracks in the economy

How we cope with the crisis will affect not just how we can build a better future, but whether we can conceive of a better future at all. What can we learn then by the way cultural identities shape the way we see the world and in particular those embedded in the Scandinavian and Baltic psyche? How could we redefine these identities to create new meaning for how we cope with creating new ways of making a living?

Education of Tomorrow

I was happy to start school 1990, before the internet revolution. School was better back then. Probably not better in absolute term but it was better because is was better aligned to the current society. School today have developed but it has failed to keep up with internet, globalism and changed job markets.

Preparing for Stockholm 15/3: What we learned so far about making a living and making sense

Noemi's picture

For three weeks now we’ve been hosting a discussion on how young and not so young people in Europe are coping with the challenges of making a living and making sense of their working lives, much of it against the backdrop of the global crisis aftermath. If you missed parts of it, you can now glimpse through this summary. I recommend reading the original pieces, the quality of all contributions is very high. Thank you Dougald, Christopher, Nadia, Alek, Natalia, Petros, Noel, Bridget, Arin, Eimhin, Andrei and those of you reacting on twitter.

Innovation and Work

cbrewster's picture

Everything is defined in relation to work. Many writers and thinkers have deplored this for decades but still nothing has changed. The situation has become worse and worse. Particularly, the ideal of education as an end in itself, as a virtuous improvement of the intellect and the soul, has been entirely lost in a language of "preparing young people for the workplace". And of course as we now see there is little or no workplace to "enter". At the World Economic Forum in Davos, it was clear that if the problem of large scale unemployment is recognised, the solutions proposed are entirely conventional - making the labour market more flexible (i.e. reduce worker protection), reduce holidays, increase part-time work etc. resulting in an overall "cheaper" labour force.
