Monica Sperens's latest proposals
"Environmental protection" owner ex county councils.
See also my comments under "Stationary info". (I was a team coach at our Design Thinking workshop at Skanstull in Stockholm.)
"Environmental hides" is an attempt to describe a new old idea that I perceived emerged in a group during the lab, but which I do not see described here in this digital place. The idea, however, is worth considering - It has great potential, as I see it. - It speaks to the physical reality of our time, in a new era. For this idea coincides with a security thinking, from eg our authorities and grassroots movements, around our vulnerability in a digital time. - The idea is also the mother so far that it responds to deep existential needs combined with desired information.
The person who originally came up with this idea talked about recovering telephone booths in Sweden. I imagine a warm cottage, an igloo, a heated old telephone booth, a tree house - yes, innovative and fun design, effective design solutions adapted to the climate in our elongated country.
Owners and senders could, for example, be the county administrative boards: Close cooperation with the authorities and close local conditions and needs, and with the responsibility of taking responsibility.
The contents of these huts: computer / information technology driven by pendulum, bicycle or other electrically independent mechanics; survival gadgets and physical map and compass, a puppet doll or a majadock, etc.
The computer communicates clearly and pedagogically what has local priority according to the sender (on the ex start page). The visitor can also search and find information based on their area of interest.
Suggestion: I suggest more DesignThinking labs. Partly to work with the sub-components of this innovation idea. Partly to work with different actors at different levels (eg the county administrative board in Dalarna, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Or SSM, Forsmark, Uppsala municipality, the school in Lövstabruk ...)
Needs-driven innovation is, in my firm belief, the wisest and most successful way to choose for the future. The tasks of the authorities cannot, according to me, be filtered by "what users say they want" because there is a risk of erosion and trivialization. It would be unfortunate for the authority to be said to carry core qualities such as deep expertise, long-term thinking, seriousness that creates confidence among us all citizens. The assignments, so to speak, are owned by the authorities, which regularly informs about what is relevant and thus also "creates needs". similar to the description of the mission / heading for the innovation process.+2
School with pilot activities
What? A school, with holistic thinking and inspiration of educator/theorist Freinet. The heart of the business becomes dock-where students alternate in cooking on a monthly basis and involve their local environment ss families and neighbors to share how the raw materials are handled, recipes and traditions, where the explicit education contributes to the added value, research and spontaneous meetings. Wellness, natural sciences and Humanities studied thematically.
-Where the live workshop educators build environments with students and follows the seasons. In the Centre stands the human needs. The pilot followed and evaluated professional.
WHEN/TIME? My guess is that provisioning occurs in three phases (preferably low-, middle-, high school). When the first Brood as a concept introduced in primary schools reached high school age launched teaching-thus preparing for six years and implementation in three years.
Where? Two separate geographic locations-one in storstadslän (in Stockholm) and one in the provinces (as in Köping).
HOW? Ask me to come and talk about the idea of the SKL. Set aside scholarship for the preparation of the plan.

Be useful. Beeing usefull.
Be useful for a while. Beeing useful for a while.
This is a social concept that includes, on loose terms. (Not yet knotted, but at the same time, the idea turns away from preparation solutions such as variants of "meet and coffee" and "must-talk about without clipping over" and turns to the direction where strange things happen in something that needs to be done by weight and value. )
The benefit is to actually make a difference in a context for a while. The reward the individual experiences by doing something useful can provide incentives for participation with ever increasing frequency. It gives an increased interest simply to want to contribute, and to feel the satisfaction of having meant something. What this means concrete is up to each local organizer. I am convinced that when the prospects for opportunities are activated, concrete actions in concrete situations begin to appear. Tasks crystallize. Need always exists. I imagine that an effort can be from 30 minutes to a full day, from a full day to many days. The right is to participate. Obligations are only about following a supervisor's directive so safety is taken into account. I mainly think of physical chores.
Who is this good for? Society that normalizes for a while the cloudy and whimsical. Individuals who dare to participate, participate, in something, become someone to count on, make use of. (The need to make use of it is possible to observe neurologically.)+4
1. Bicycle Cafe and 2. well
1. Bicycle Cafe: in this first spontaneous sketch I see before me a nice open room with barliknande serving for me and my bike (much like we have with us baby strollers today). The need for cyclists may be to stay a while on the road, to drink the city's happiest coffee, eat morning porridge, shelter, warmth, rest, meet the ... The need for others to be hanging with the bikers (which in General is really nice), do statistical surveys with the target group "we like bikes at happy bike path" (and then the riders also have a residual income). On the test of the route-see comment. Need is available here as an opportunity for commercial operators < br/> 2. Well: a beautiful meeting place where you can drink fresh spring water, without having to get off the bike (!), where it is possible to stay for a minute, fill in with force, smile and ride on. The city is built well with historical insight or reopens wells (such as on the main square). The city fuss if the well as a valuable gem.
Laboratory work based on needs-driven innovation as a natural working method.

Suggestion: I suggest more DesignThinking labs. Partly to work with the sub-components of the innovation ideas. Partly to work with different actors at different levels. In parallel, more people with knowledge in facilitation are developing, preferably at regional level.
Laboratory work based on needs-driven innovation as a natural working method.
Where? Who? In all contexts where public administration meets citizens: in authorities, in municipalities, in fact-based interest groups etc.
Needs-driven innovation is, according to my firm belief, the wisest and most successful way to choose for the future.
The tasks of the authorities cannot, according to me, be filtered by "what users say they want" because there is a risk of erosion and trivialization.
It would be unfortunate, because the authority can be said to carry core qualities such as deep expertise, long-term thinking, seriousness that creates trust among us all citizens.
The authorities' assignments, so to speak, are owned by the authorities, which continuously informs about what is relevant to the citizens (including those who work at the authority). The authority's choice is of importance and can thus also "create needs and neglect others" (my words), which is in line with existing values and what the knowledgeable city administrations should handle, I think. How is the question perhaps? How and what can be investigated. We agree on that. The Authority serves the public's needs.
Formulations such as the assignment description / heading above regarding this innovation process are good, I think to start the process.
It says that "the authority is to catch" and I, as a communication, language and rhetoric worker, perceive uncertainties in responsibilities and divisions in desires. Possibly this is inevitable ambiguity but equally difficult to handle for everyone involved. Especially if we lay down some levels and look for action calls. One we should respond to "the public's need for environmental information".
The formulation raises many follow-up questions with me: How should an authority with governmental knowledge and factual knowledge handle something that we could call demand? Is demand and need the same? Whose needs are we trying to solve in the lab? (Is it, for example, the authority's need to find the right path in our digital time, or handle its frustration over the contradictions in the third task or is it the public's need for security? Does information in that case provide security?)
Design Thinking as a method is always needs owner based. Then the method is always successful. MAKE MANY LABORATIONS WITH DIFFERENT NEEDS.
Laboratory work in the majority.+2
