Big news: TWO amazing educators will be facilitating our next Disruptive Design Method Workshop, live online this May 🧠🧠🥳 AND as a bonus, @leylaacaroglu will be at the first and last session! 🙌 Creative changemaker Emma Segal (@emmasegal) brings over two decades of experience designing and producing local and international manufactured consumer goods. With formal training in international relations, design and illustration, along with a Masters degree in changing the way designers create products, she has a deep breadth of work, from creating multi-million dollar programs for multi-national organizations to bootstrapped entrepreneurs. Over the last decade, Myrthe Lanting (@myrthedlanting) has broadly focused on bottom-up and sustainable urban development and social entrepreneurship. Her work is driven by a strong desire to re-imagine and amplify the transitions towards socially just and sustainable societies and is biased towards smart all-round approaches that touch upon the intersection of social innovation and sustainability.

We know, we know — it’s going to be hard to look back on 2020 and remember lockdowns, social distancing, and masks with fondness 🙄 We’re all ready for the year to end and for a fresh start in 2021. However, since part of our philosophy at The UnSchool is to become problem lovers, we wanted to end the year on a high note by pointing out that as difficult as it’s been this past year, some good has certainly emerged. From the massive shift underway toward a sustainable, regenerative and circular future, through to a big improvement in 2020's Earth Overshoot Day, we rounded up our Top 5 Favorites from 2020 🌎 Click the link in our bio to read them all! What "good" are you taking away from this year?

The band @coldplay has paused all their tours -- and it's not just because of Covid. Instead, they're taking a year or two to design a carbon-neutral concerts. "We’re taking time over the next year or two to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial," said band lead Chris Martin in a recent interview with @BBCnews. "'Our dream is to have a show with no single-use plastic, to have it largely solar powered. We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s not so much taking as giving?'” 🖤 Read the full article via the link in our bio 💥

"I was always heavily involved with tech startups, and after having my business acquired at 28, I realised just how uninteresting more success and money is. I was also really uncomfortable with where we’re going with technology. For the last year, I’ve been out searching for answers to many of these questions and despite all the negativity and fear surrounding us today, I believe that both business and technology have a key role to play in solving the world's biggest challenges. We just have to rethink how we apply them as the tools that they are to the problems we’re facing.⠀ ⠀ Every year, the world’s smartest and most trusted voices keep saying we live in an unprecedented and scary time. I used to submit to this narrative, but the more people passionate about change I meet, the more of an optimist I become. ⠀ ⠀ I believe it’s on us, the changemakers, to redefine this narrative around our future, from all the evil and injustice we need to eradicate, towards what we need to build. We live in an exciting time that will see us shaping the future of humanity for better, not for worse. And we have all the resources and people we need to build a world that works for everyone.

Wow: "Scientists say the weight of human-made objects will likely exceed that of living things by the end of the year. In other words, the combined weight of all the plastic, bricks, concrete and other things we've made in the world will outweigh all animals and plants on the planet for the first time. 👉 From plastic bottles to the bricks and concretes we use for buildings and roads, the weight of all the things we produce has been doubling every 20 years recently. At the same time, the weight of living things has been falling, mainly due to the loss of plant life in forests and natural spaces." 📰 Read the full @bbcnews article via the link in our bio.⠀ ⠀ PS: If you want to take on your consumption habits and learn how to take action to make change, join our 30-day Take Action Change Activating Challenge!

"My life has always been driven by my passions, my family and my purpose of meaningful impact on everything I do. My passion for problem-solving, connecting nodes and pragmatic action delivery have influenced my career path and work experiences. The last 18 years of working experience have centered around supply chain & operations, working across mining, resources and manufacturing industries in South America, USA, Asia and Australia. Additionally, I have worked with fantastic people whilst performing the role of Senior Manager in Tier 1 consulting firms, advising leaders in the areas of operations strategy, technology integration and program execution as part of Digital & Business Transformation initiatives. ⠀ ⠀ There was one thing I have always encountered whilst helping organisations transform to deliver a growth and financial performance agenda: change. Specifically, dealing with the complexities of our resistance to it. ⠀ ⠀ The journey towards a deeper understanding of this social problem is what led me to find the Circular Economy and its principles.⠀ ⠀ To me, the principles underpinning circular economy were the missing link I always felt existed in an organisation’s transformation journey. This is why my latest career adventure is now as a Founder and CEO of Bivio. We are a for-impact enterprise providing circular transformation advisory services focused and tailored to supply chains & operations and their challenges/objectives." ⚡ Read more about alumni Rocio Rutter and her amazing change initiatives via the link in our bio 🔗

A long-time sustainability pioneer, @IKEA is now also leading discussions in the transformation to a circular economy, as shared by a recent article in @dezeen: "IKEA is looking at all 10,000 of its products to investigate how they can be designed to circular principles. Through its partnership with @ellenmacarthurfoundation, it hopes to advocate for wider adoption of circular economic principles in its supply chain and further afield. 👉 'What we realised quite quickly is that IKEA being a circular company on its own is quite pointless,' explained (IKEA's Head of Circular Design) Malin Nordin. 'We are interdependent of other businesses.' 🔊 IKEA will promote the ideals to its supply chain, customers and designers, and the two organisations will develop a set of global definitions for terms surrounding circular design and aim to impact legislation."⠀ ⠀ Read the full article via the link in our bio, or dive into your own #SustainabilityInBusiness journey by signing up for one of our brand new, online organizational training courses at #UnschoolsOnline 💥 ⠀ ⠀ 📸 courtesy of Semen Borisov on Unsplash

"Disruption was asked to be banished in 2012, 2014, and 2015, yet it still is a hot, overused ‘buzzword.’ Just like many aspirational terms before it (like sustainability and innovation), popularity leads to overuse, dilution, confusion, and fatigue. Frankly, overuse sucks the meaning right out of a concept until it’s just a shell of an idea held together by ink on a page.⠀ ⠀ Disruption, like so many overused words, is intensely misunderstood. While conceptually the term means to create an interruption into something that is maintaining a status quo, colloquially it is much more about making loads of money from the newest, most ‘disruptive’ (read: newer) technology out there. It’s toppling old industries through new smart, young, and agile upstarts. In this context, it’s not about making change; it’s about winning customers, clicks, and clients." ⠀ ⠀ Read the rest of @LeylaAcaroglu's explanation of disruption -- and how it relates to innovation and design -- in our Journal 💥 Link in bio 🔗

“I’m a writer based out of New Mexico. For the last eight years, I’ve been working on a book called Lightning Flowers: My Journey To Uncover the Cost of Saving A Life, which (finally!) came out on November 10. The book opens on the night in 2012 when I took three accidental shocks to the heart from my implanted cardiac defibrillator (ICD). I’d had the device implanted in 2009, after I passed out in a parking lot and was diagnosed with a genetic arrhythmia—Long QT Syndrome—that could cause the heart to quiver instead of beat, sometimes leading to cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death.⠀ ⠀ In theory, an ICD goes off when you’re unconscious, resetting the heart so it can beat normally again. But that night in 2012, mine went off while I was awake, because of an error in its settings. To take 2,000 volts to the heart is a searing, otherworldly experience, and in the moments after the shocks stopped, I found a strange question landing in my body: If the device had saved my life, and the metal inside me had come from a conflict minerals area (where women were kept as sex slaves or children were conscripted to work), was it worth it?”⠀ ⠀ This alumni spotlight about Katherine Standefer (@girlmakesfire) is one that you absolutely don't want to miss! 🔗 Click the link in our bio to read it now 🔗

How can we increase the positive impact technology has on the world? 💻📱 That is what @miloszfalinski is working on through his consultancy Luminous and the volunteering community digitalforgood. Milosz strongly believes in the key roles of business and technology, and rethinking how to apply them as the tools to the problems we’re facing. As an experienced designer and tech-entrepreneur, he joined our online Disruptive Design Masterclass last February, to expand his understanding of the innovation process beyond his familiar digital space, and learn more tools that allow us to steer it to create positive change. We caught up with Milosz recently, and were excited to learn he is now successfully experimenting with #systemsthinking and life cycle assessments in the digital space! No matter your background, the DDM will help you activate positive impact, foster a systems-based mindset, design change outcomes, and develop the leadership skills for challenging the status quo. The next Masterclass starts November 2nd – applications are now open! 👉 Unschools.co #sustainability #design #techforgood #sustainability #takeaction #sustainablebusiness #businessforgood #leadership #circulareconomy #circularbusiness #corporateresponsibility #changemakers #buildbackbetter #greenrecovery

129 billion face masks and 65 billion plastic gloves per month. 😷😵⠀ ⠀ That’s the estimation of how many of these we will use and dispose of for every month that we face the Covid-19 pandemic. ⠀ ⠀ Covid regulations and increased concerns around safety and hygiene have sparked a surge in the use of disposable single-use products, including medical and hygiene items, but also in food and convenience packaging. The @financialtimes recently called this a ‘toxic pandemic waste crisis’. ⠀ ⠀ More so than ever before, we need ways of meeting the needs for personal safety and the need to protect our planet for future generations through #sustainable and #circular solutions. ⠀ ⠀ Read the full article in our journal this week (link in linktree), including 8 ways you can avoid disposable, single-use products. 🌎💚⠀ ⠀ #sustainability #reuse #reduce #greenhabits #zerowaste #covid19 #staysafe #circulareconomy #circulardesign #sustainabledesign #packagingdesign @plasticfreejuly @aplasticplanet

Over the years, we’ve created a range of toolkits at The UnSchool to help you develop the skills you need to make this transformation happen. ⠀ ⠀ We’re committed to sharing at least 20% of our content free for all and open-source and have listed all of them in this week’s journal. So head over for a kickstart on activating change for free! 🤓👊 Find the link in our bio! ⠀ ⠀ #TheUnSchool #changemakers #takeactionnow #makechange #keeplearning #resources #toolkit #sustainabledesign #greenrecovery #lifeaftercovid #sustainability #systemschange #zerowaste
