In this day and age, you can do pretty much anything online (including surviving a global pandemic). While those of us post-uni might not be keen on going back to full-time classes, we are sometimes confronted with a skill we want to brush up...

I'm curious. Is there interest here in a conversation about the value of investing in higher education as a means to end poverty? Or has that topic come up before?

    Great question @Lonn Dugan :) When you say "higher education" what do you mean? I'm curious if you meant taking MBA after university? or taking university after high school? Please clarify :)

    Hi Lourdes: In this case Higher education means College Education in poverty stricken sub saharan africa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A client of mine believes education will help people solve their social, humanitarian, and economic problems. I wonder what others think about this?

      Hi Lonn: I agree with your client. Knowledge is power! gives you the power to change your personal condition and the awareness of the infinite possibilities you have. Applying this concept to an Educational Program means change the the future of a Nation.

    Education is an important pillar but not the only one required to eradicate poverty. There is at least 4 pillars for each for 3 different floors

Are indoor vertical farms the future of agriculture?

By 2050, the global population is projected to reach 9.8 billion. How are we going to feed everyone? Investment-banker-turned-farmer Stuart Oda points to indoor vertical farming: growing food on tiered racks in a controlled, climate-proof environment. In a forward-looking talk, he explains how this method can maintain better safety standards, save money, use less water and help us provide for future generations.

    These vertical farms are certainly an inspiration for the future, particularly as part of green, sponge cities solving all the sustainability problems 'in a go'

    Vertical/Urban farming is the way to go. Not only will they help to reduce the agrarian footprint, they will also redefine the meaning of "fresh". Any green that is produced some hundred kilometres away and transported either in the heat of the day, or in cooling containers, or is exposed to traffic fumes, can not be as fresh as th greens that come from the vertical urban farm in your neighbourhood. And I am not yet talking about the environmental impact of the transport vehicles. Yes, urban vertical farming is a worthy movement to support.

So great to be a part of this community. If you want to create lasting change, you first need to understand how change takes place on an ontological level. I have been researching this for the past decade. Please inform me if you would like to know more, as this truly is a game changer.

The "opportunity gap" in US public education -- and how to close it

How can we tap into the potential of all students, especially those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds? Sociologist Anindya Kundu invites us to take a deeper look at the personal, social and institutional challenges that keep students from thriving in the United States -- and shows how closing this "opportunity gap" means valuing public education for what it really is: the greatest investment in our collective future.

Time for a regenerative and decentralized economy...

A healthy economy should be designed to thrive, not grow

What would a sustainable, universally beneficial economy look like? "Like a doughnut," says Oxford economist Kate Raworth. In a stellar, eye-opening talk, she explains how we can move countries out of the hole -- where people are falling short on life's essentials -- and create regenerative, distributive economies that work within the planet's ecological limits.

Some amazing ideas from the Nobel Prize winning duo. Particularly their summary that "poor countries are not doomed to failure because they are poor, or because they have had an unfortunate history. What often needs to be fought is ignorance, ideology and inertia". Worth a read!

The world's most-feted economist couple have dedicated their life to fighting poverty.
