In France, creativity at school is only taught in artistic fields. There is no creativity method taught in others fields, or as a method for applied creativity. It is probably the same in others countries. And children are asked more and more to be flexible, adaptable, imaginative, etc.
I run communication workshops and am amazed to see how frightened and difficult it is for people to walk down and street and say hello to a 'stranger'. They have prioritized 'stranger' above 'fellow human being' and therefore hestitate to connect, are terrified of eye contact and embarassed to say 'Hello!"
I walked a highly trafficked Los Angeles street saying hello to every single person and waving to drivers. It was my own expression of the joy of being alive as well as my response to the alienation I felt suffocating the human spirit. At first there was astonishment, some even thought I might be crazy but as I openly and authentically engaged them all keeping the connection light and playful there were a lot more smiles. People felt 'seen'.
Wind turbines at sea can utilise the surrounding water to store the energy by using the energy to mechanically pull buoys beneath the surface to a depth and generate electrical power by letting them rise when the energy is wanted.
Buoys can be constructed of used tyres formed into cylinders and inflated. Having made such a buoy I know that it works. We have many millions of used tyres (or for the U.S. "tires") these can be put to use as an energy store.
The energy can be stored until needed later in the day or even months later. The wind speed does not need to be sufficient to generate but a mere breeze can produce energy that is stored for use later.
How can we get the world's geometrically growing number of creativity/innovation consultants, writers, speakers, coaches, researchers to share, integrate, combine their efforts in order to truly make a significant difference around the globe.
