Welcome to the Global Learning Village. In a world overwhelmed with information, where is wisdom? The GLV seeks the wisdom of crowds, business, governments and non-government agencies, the philanthropic and community sectors, mavericks, iconoclasts and free thinkers. This is your chance to workshop ideas, connect and collaborate to create smarter, healthier, better connected communities.
This is where your voice can be heard and your innovative ideas road tested. It’s a platform to connect individuals and communities. The GLV sows the seeds of creativity, nurtures the relationships necessary to flourish and reaps the harvest of opportunities in the community interest.
The GLV is driven by ongoing collaboration. Its aim is to defy the silo mentality, turf war, institutional ego and bureaucratic inertia that strangle creativity and innovation. A key focus is attitude, education and opportunity, the attributes that largely determine where everyone ends up in life. Areas of interest include innovation, technology, enterprise, social inclusion, community development and lifelong learning.
The GLV model has been nominated for the internationally prestigious Metropolis Awards for 2011. This is for the proof of concept in connecting community hubs such as libraries and maternal and childcare centres to the digital age. This also connected the disconnected via computers instead of poker machines. The GLV brokered the deals to deliver social infrastructure that usurped what had long been regarded as the immutable laws of power, politics and money that ruled that such infrastructure was gifted to marginal electorates ahead of areas of greater need.
Let us know your ideas on how to create better opportunities. Become part of the Global Learning Village now.
