    What was sparked

    More than 170 people from 14 countries tuned into the Stanford Social Innovation Review webinar in February where we shared our learnings around the concept and practice of inscaping. A number of interesting questions and comments were raised during the Q&A. Since we did not have time to respond to all of them during the webinar, I thought it would be worth sharing our responses here in writing.

    Protest is never enough to secure a long-term vision for a country, so the straight lines of demonstrations have to be re-shaped into new patterns of participatory democracy and dialogue. This is what is happening in Brazil. Brazilians will continue to show their discontent about a country that is known for its corruption, and for the huge gaps that exist between rich and poor. But alongside [...]

    Children’s social services in England, like those of many other countries, don’t always have a sparkling public reputation when it comes to face-to-face relations.

Knowing this, I take it further to imagine that by ‘higher levels’ he meant higher levels of [...]
