It has been estimated that around one third of all edible food produced is being lost or wasted across the value chain. We are considering whether a challenge prize could help identify new and effective bioeconomy based solutions to tackle food waste.</p> <p>We would value your opinion on the following questions:</p> <ul> <li>How do you think bioeconomy based approaches can be used to reduce food waste?</li> <li>What promising developments are already taking place to reduce food waste and how effective are these?</li> <li>What are the biggest barriers to reducing food waste?</li> </ul> <strong>Bioeconomy</strong> <p>The term bioeconomy refers to an economy which uses renewable biological resources from the land and sea, converts waste into food and feed, and uses bio-based products and services as well as industrial and bioenergy production. The bioeconomy has great potential to move Europe towards a low-emission circular economy and a more sustainable future in agriculture, fisheries and industrial processes, while protecting the environment.</p> <p>Here we describe some of the key challenge areas and state of the art developments in the bioeconomy, as well as some of the opportunities created by these developments. This is meant as a prompt to get you thinking about the most important developments and their future benefits. </p> <h4>Key challenge area: reducing food waste</h4> <p>To cope with increasing demand for food, the need to drastically reduce the environmental impact of food production and the need to remain competitive, it is critical to develop more resource-efficient and sustainable food production and processing systems. Biological resources, new approaches to consumers' behaviour and bio-based processes offer significant potential across the food system, including:</p> <ul> <li>Reducing food waste</li> <li>Increasing supply chain efficiency</li> <li>Developing healthy and sustainable dietary patterns</li> <li>Increasing value whilst reducing environmental impact</li> </ul> <p>Overall there is potential to take a ‘circular economy’ approach whereby food system outputs either re-enter the environment or are used as inputs to the system in order to increase value, in both cases reducing waste and environmental impacts.</p> <p>Food waste is a particularly big issue, with an estimated 30% of all food grown worldwide being lost or wasted before and after it reaches the consumer, and in industrialised countries more than 40% of food being lost at retail and consumer stages.</p> <h4>Areas of opportunity</h4> <p>Imagine a future where&hellip;..</p> <ul> <li>Waste from food production and supply is routinely turned into food packaging using renewable energy sources</li> <li>New food production and preservation methods mean that food stays safe to eat for longer, without increasing – perhaps even decreasing - fat, sugar, preservative or salt content</li> <li>New types of transport and storage solutions are more sustainable and enable food to be kept edible for longer</li> <li>New approaches to transparency in food production and distribution provide more accurate information about food waste, enabling more targeted action to be taken to reduce it</li> <li>More affordable, smaller, more sustainable food growing and processing tools and methods enable much shorter supply chains, and bring food production closer to consumers.</li> <li>Less food is wasted at home where often food is bought but ends up going straight from the fridge to the bin</li> </ul> </div> <div class="accordionButton"> <div class="accordionButtonInner">Theme: Design-Driven Material Innovation</div> <div id="triangle-topleft"></div> </div> <div class="accordionContent accordionButtonLast"> <p><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8773">Imagine one possible breakthrough or amazing piece of commercial or societal application related to design-driven material innovation…</a></p> <p>We are looking at whether an inducement prize could generate novel, added-value, better performing, sustainable and appealing designs and creative solutions for societal and/or commercial applications based on new materials co-developed by partnerships of designers and material scientists.</p> <p>We would value your opinions on the following questions:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8811">What are the biggest issues that should be tackled through design-driven material development?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8812">What do you think is the most exciting or important area of innovation already happening in design-driven material development?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8813">What is stopping faster or more effective breakthroughs using design-driven material development from happening at the moment? </a></li> </ul> <h4>Background</h4> <p>The design-driven development and use of new materials has the potential to be a critical part of the creation of a smart, sustainable and inclusive Europe, as well as one of the key drivers for developing high value products, increasing productivity and improving resource efficiency.  There is a particular need for material scientists, designers and other societal stakeholders to work together in new ways.  Grand creative visions for what could be done with new materials are numerous; the science behind new materials is extraordinary – bring science and design together, add user insight, innovation and business expertise, and the possibilities for breakthroughs are truly great.</p> <h4>Areas of opportunity</h4> <p>Imagine a future where, thanks to combining human values, design and new materials…</p> <ul> <li>An older person can wear clothes that provide information to themselves and their family to help them live more safely with dementia</li> <li>We spray a healing antibacterial web onto wounds without the need for plasters or bandages</li> <li>Historic buildings are renovated to become self-repairing, eliminating the need for future restorations</li> <li>Day-to-day assistive devices are transformed, at an affordable price, from passive to dynamic products, providing users, family and carers with information that can help them manage disabling conditions with dignity</li> <li>Buildings and clothes change colour to provide information about air quality</li> </ul> </div> <div class="accordionButton"> <div class="accordionButtonInner">Theme: Health</div> <div id="triangle-topleft"></div> </div> <div class="accordionContent accordionButtonLast"> <p><a href="">Imagine one possible breakthrough or truly amazing piece of progress related to health…</a></p> <p>We are looking at whether a challenge prize, or prizes, could help to advance effective rapid and cheap diagnostics for respiratory infectious diseases.</p> <p>We would value your opinion on the following questions:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8814">What impact would you like to see achieved in relation to diagnostic tests for respiratory infectious diseases in the next two years?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8815">What promising developments are already taking place in relation to diagnostic tests for respiratory infectious diseases?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8816">What is stopping faster or more effective breakthroughs in effective, rapid and cheap diagnostic tests for respiratory infectious diseases from happening at the moment?  What do you think could help?</a></li> </ul> <h4>Background</h4> <p>As an area of innovation, health is particularly exciting, challenging and complex.  Advances in the health sector span prevention, diagnostic technologies & processes, drug development, treatment methods, disease management and patient empowerment across a wide range of conditions.</p> <p>Health is also a critical social and economic challenge for Europe.  There are many important and growing health concerns for European citizens, including chronic diseases such as cancer and infectious diseases, as well as health challenges associated with an ageing population and the quality and financial sustainability of healthcare delivery systems.</p> <p>The possibilities for developing challenge prizes in health are vast. Some areas of need and opportunity might be more suited to challenge prizes than others.  For example the costs associated with drug development may make it difficult to develop a prize that could really make a difference in this field.  </p> <h4>Key challenge area: Rapid point of care diagnostic tests for respiratory infectious diseases</h4> <p>More accurate, more immediate, less invasive and point of care diagnostics are key research topics across many areas of development for health.  Much has been done to develop future diagnostic technologies and processes, but there are many more opportunities to create significant impact through new and radically improved diagnostics.</p> <p>Rapid point of care diagnostic tests for infectious diseases could have a transformational effect on the appropriate use of antibacterials, ultimately enabling the reduction of the unnecessary use of antibiotics.  This would reduce costs and side effects of antibiotics and delay the emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms.  In addition, rapid point of care diagnostic tests would be helpful in treating patients because they would enable doctors to take early decisions in infectious disease management. </p> <h4>What are the opportunities?</h4> <p>Imagine a future where&hellip;..</p> <ul><li>The huge problem of antimicrobial resistance can be stopped</li> <li>Fewer unnecessary antibiotics are used because doctors can immediately differentiate between viral and bacterial pneumonia with a rapid and cheap test in their surgery</li> <li>Treatments can be tailored to individual patient conditions, thereby dramatically improving their effectiveness</li> </div> <div class="accordionButton"> <div class="accordionButtonInner">Theme: Transport</div> <div id="triangle-topleft"></div> </div> <div class="accordionContent accordionButtonLast"> <p><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8791">Imagine one possible breakthrough or truly amazing piece of progress related to clean engines...</a></p> <p>We are looking at how a challenge prize, or prizes, could help to advance the development of clean engines.</p> <p>We'd like to hear your thoughts on:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8817">What are the most problematic road transport engine emissions and how can these be dealt with?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8818">What different innovations can be developed for new engines, and what for cleaning existing ones?</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.changemakers.com/discussions/discussion-8819">What is stopping faster or more effective breakthroughs in clean engines from happening at the moment and what do you think could help?</a></li> </ul> <h4>Background</h4> <p>Transport plays a crucial role in the lives of citizens across Europe and is a critical element for a sustainable, economically strong Europe, as well as for developing a future Europe that is smart and inclusive.   The importance of addressing the environmental and public health effects of transport is therefore particularly important.  The CO2 impact of transport is fairly well recognized but there is a considerable way still to go to address the impact.  Air quality and impacts from other emissions are regulated but are still problematic in many European cities that are subject to higher than acceptable pollution levels, as well as being generally less well understood by the public.</p> <h4>Key challenge area: clean combustion engines</h4> <p>The European automotive industry is innovative across many fronts and there are several mechanisms that exist to support and recognise that innovation.  An area that perhaps warrants more attention is the development of clean engines and an understanding of the effects of toxic pollutants. The development of electric and/or hydrogen vehicles offers great future opportunities.  Meanwhile, whilst the technology and infrastructure required continues to develop, there is significant potential to improve combustion engines that will remain on streets around the world for decades to come, to reduce their environmental and public health impact.</p> <p>In 2011, 5% of the EU urban population lived in areas where the annual EU limit value and the World Health Organisation Air Quality Guidelines for NO<sub>2</sub> were exceeded. Reasons for failure to meet projected air quality standards are complex. It is thought that potential problems include:</p> <ul><li>Unforeseen degradation and limitations of installed technology</li> <li>Increased penetration of higher rated diesel vehicles that emit greater concentrations of nitrogen compounds than petrol vehicles</li> <li>Standard test methodologies achieving emission limits that are considerably better than emissions under real-world driving conditions</li> <li>Lack of clear consumer data on clean engines</li></ul> <h4>What are the opportunities?</h4> <p>Imagine a future where&hellip;..</p> <ul><li>An effective, low cost method or product enables any combustion engine to be adapted to drastically decrease pollution levels (e.g. taking a Euro 1 performing vehicle to Euro 5 for minimal cost)</li> <li>New testing procedures enable effective, easy to use on-road testing to more accurately assess pollution levels from combustion vehicles</li> <li>Cars are produced or can be retrofitted with technology that makes safe, automatic changes to driving that drastically reduce pollution levels</li> <li>New vehicles successfully combine significantly increased fuel efficiency with minimal emissions</li></ul> </div> <div class="accordionButton"> <div class="accordionButtonInner">Theme: Energy</div> <div id="triangle-topleft"></div> </div> <div class="accordionContent accordionButtonLast"> <p>Imagine one possible breakthrough or truly amazing piece of progress related to energy,..</p> <p>We are looking at how challenge prizes could achieve breakthroughs in the development and application of synthetic photosynthesis and/or in the effectiveness and spread of community-led energy supply.</p> <ul> <li><a href="">What are the critical problems you think should be tackled in relation to energy, in order to have the greatest positive and sustainable impact for Europe?</a></li> <li><a href="">What promising developments are already taking place in relation to synthetic photosynthesis?</a></li> <li><a href="">What is stopping faster or more effective breakthroughs in developing synthetic photosynthesis from happening at the moment?

What do you think could help?</a></li> </ul> <h4>Background</h4> <p>Energy is a topic of great importance to the lives of every citizen, organisation and business in Europe. Increasingly scarce resources, growing energy needs, energy security and energy independence, and climate change present critical challenges for Europe as we make the necessary transition to a reliable, sustainable competitive energy system.</p> <h4>Key challenge area 1: Synthetic Photosynthesis</h4> <p>Synthetic photosynthesis involves mimicking photosynthesis - nature’s way of making fuel from sunlight. Across Europe there are already efforts to develop the science to enable this to happen, but there is still some way to go before we can harness this technology at a commercial scale. Further scientific and technical advances, as well as inter-disciplinary collaboration, are required. Advancing progress could have a significant impact on moving Europe towards a clean and secure energy future.</p> <h4>Key challenge area 2: Community Energy Supply </h4> <p>People in their everyday lives contribute to the challenges related to energy, whether consciously or not, in the choices they make about its access and use. Increasingly citizens are also playing important roles in solutions for creating a more sustainable, clean and safe energy future for Europe. Future solutions will allow them to have a greater role in the decision-making process on how their energy is generated. This has included the development and early adoption of community-level and citizen-led renewable energy generation and supply solutions, which can also bring additional benefits including social innovations that create a greater sense of connection for people to their place and community.</p> <p>However there is still great unrealised potential in community energy supply, through both the scale and scope of its use. For example;</p> <ul><li>through creating new innovative opportunities for mass participation;</li> <li>by developing new innovative models for energy transfer between energy rich and energy poor communities; or</li> <li>by developing breakthroughs in energy exports from communities</li> </ul> <h4>What are the opportunities?</h4> <p>Imagine a future where…..</p> <ul><li>Solar energy can more easily replace fossil fuel-derived energy in the production process</li> <li>Hydrogen vehicles are a viable option thanks to commercially available solar produced hydrogen</li> <li>Solar produced hydrogen is used for electricity generation</li> <li>Energy resource-poor communities across Europe receive power generated by energy resource-rich communities through new partnerships</li> <li>Communities in which every person has microgeneration or owns shares in local renewables become common across Europe</li> </ul> </div> </div> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <style> <!-- Styles for accordion.

Technology for Health

นำเทคโนโลยีมาใช้เป็นเครื่องมือเพื่อสร้างการเปลี่ยนแปลง

การรวบรวม จัดเก็บ และวิเคราะห์ข้อมูลทั้งข้อมูลทางสุขภาพและข้อมูลทางการแพทย์ หรือแม้แต่ข้อมูลเฉพาะของแต่ละบุคคลเพื่อทราบผลกระทบที่เกิดจากพฤติกรรมต่างๆของตนเอง เป็นการเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพในการทำงานของบุคลากรทางการแพทย์ อีกทั้งช่วยให้เกิดความเท่าเทียมกันในการเข้าถึงบริการด้านการดูแลสุขภาพเนื่องจากประชาชนสามารถเข้าถึงข้อมูลที่สำคัญและเป็นประโยชน์ได้อย่างทั่วถึง ซึ่งการพัฒนาของเทคโนโลยีและนวัตกรรมไม่เพียงช่วยพัฒนาและส่งเสริมสุขภาพทางกายเท่านั้น ยังหมายรวมถึงสุขภาพทางจิตใจและจิตวิญญาณอีกด้วยเนื่องจากคนในสังคมมีช่องทางในการเข้าถึงเรื่องจิตวิญญาณที่หลากหลายมากขึ้น ไม่เป็นการกระจุกอยู่ที่กลุ่มผู้มีฐานะอย่างเช่นแต่ก่อน

Shifting Role

เปลี่ยนบทบาทให้ประชาชนเป็นผู้นำในการสร้างการเปลี่ยนแปลง

จากข้อมูลของสำนักนโยบายและยุทธศาสตร์ กระทรวงสาธารณสุข พบว่า มีจำนวนผู้ป่วยนอกเข้ารับการรักษาในสถานบริการสาธารณสุขทั่วประเทศเพิ่มขึ้น จาก 130 ล้านครั้งในปี 2550 เป็น 140 ล้านครั้งในปี 2551 ในขณะที่จำนวนสถานพยาบาล เครื่องมือทางการแพทย์ รวมทั้งบุคคลากรทางการแพทย์มีไม่เพียวพอต่อความต้องการ ทำให้การเข้ารับบริการต้องใช้เวลารอนานและแพทย์มีเวลาดูแลผู้ป่วยน้อยลง นอกจากนี้ เมื่อพิจารณาจำนวนโรงพยาบาลและสถานพยาบาลทั่วประเทศพบว่ามีเพียง 1,286 แห่งเท่านั้นที่มีเตียงไว้รองรับผู้ป่วยค้างคืน (ปี 2553) โดยส่วนใหญ่กระจุกอยู่ในตัวเมืองและกรุงเทพมหานคร

Too much information of Healthcare

สังคมขาดระบบการคัดกรองข้อมูลที่ถูกต้อง

ความก้าวหน้าทางเทคโนโลยีและระบบสื่อสารโทรคมนาคมต่างๆถือเป็นปัจจัยสำคัญอีกประการหนึ่งที่มีผลต่อสุขภาวะของประชากรไทยเนื่องจากเป็นแรงผลักดันให้สังคมไทยกลายเป็นสังคมแห่งข้อมูลข่าวสาร คนในสังคมสามารถรับและส่งข้อมูลข่าวสารต่างๆได้อย่างรวดเร็วและหลากหลายช่องทางมากขึ้น เกิดการเชื่อมโยงสิ่งต่างๆหรือภาคส่วนต่างๆเข้าด้วยกันซึ่งทำให้เกิดการขยายตัวของเครือข่ายทางสังคมหรือกลุ่มต่างๆในสังคม (Social networks) นอกจากนี้การที่คนในสังคมกล้าเปิดเผยพื้นที่ส่วนตัวมากขึ้นย่อมช่วยให้การแลกเปลี่ยนและเรียนรู้เป็นไปอย่างกว้างขวางและกระตุ้นให้เกิดการแสดงความคิดเห็นหรือการร่วมกันตัดสินใจในนโยบายสาธารณะต่างๆมากขึ้น อีกทั้งยังช่วยให้เกิดกระบวนการตรวจสอบความโปร่งใสในประเด็นต่างๆมากขึ้น สิ่งสำคัญคือช่วยให้การจัดเก็บและวิเคราะห์ข้อมูลทางการแพทย์เป็นไปอย่างมีประสิทธิภาพมากขึ้น

Aging

ประเทศไทยกำลังเผชิญกับการเปลี่ยนแปลงโครงสร้างประชากรที่สัดส่วนผู้สูงอายุมีเพิ่มมากขึ้นในขณะที่อัตราการเกิดมีน้อยลง โดยสัดส่วนผู้ที่มีอายุมากกว่า 60 ปีขึ้นไปมีประมาณ 12% ซึ่งมีการประมาณการณ์ว่าจะเพิ่มขึ้นเป็น 25% ในปี 2573 ในขณะที่จำนวนการมีบุตรโดยเฉลี่ยของครัวเรือนอยู่ที่ 2 คนต่อครอบครัวซึ่งลดลงจาก 6 คน ในช่วงทศวรรษที่ผ่านมา หมายความว่าในอีก 30 ปี ข้างหน้าภาระการดูแลผู้สูงอายุจะเพิ่มมากขึ้นในขณะที่จำนวนผู้ดูแลจะลดน้อยลง ซึ่งรัฐอาจต้องรับภาระหนักในส่วนนี้

De “recolectores de basura” a microempresarios

Mon, 03/28/2011 - 01:54 -- Anonymous (not verified)
Spanish

Escrito por Lorena López

Comenzó creando un sistema de microempresas encargadas de recolectar y procesar residuos urbanos para lograr ciudades más limpias y sanas en Perú. El mayor éxito inmediato ha sido dignificar el trabajo de los recolectores de residuos, quienes pasaron a pertenecer a un sistema de empleo formal, digno y con aportes sociales y jubilatorios. En esta ocasión, Albina Ruiz, fundadora de Ciudadsaludable.org, cuenta su experiencia como emprendedora y los logros obtenidos que se reflejan en una mejora en la vida de la gente.

¿Cuáles son las tres cualidades que hacen que un agente de cambio tenga éxito?
Perseverancia, ética y una cierta dosis de locura (risas). Y, sobre todo, hacer las cosas con amor, porque para lograr cambios en el sistema hay que tener un poco de locura y mucho amor por lo que se hace.

¿Qué fue lo que te hizo tener éxito en tu trabajo? ¿Qué tácticas o estrategias específicas has utilizado?

Creer en la gente. Uno puede tener problemas y a veces la gente puede no responder, pero hay que insistir y creer. Hemos logrado trabajar con diversos actores y creemos que el Estado debe cumplir un rol importante; también trabajamos con empresas y la sociedad civil: organizaciones de base, recicladores y otras entidades.

La estrategia específica fue y es trabajar en políticas públicas. Eso nos permitió expandir el modelo; incluso sacamos una ley que regula la actividad del reciclador y que brinda inclusión económica, social y dignifica el trabajo. Se aprobó en 2009 y fue la primera ley de ese tipo en el mundo.

¿Cuál es tu superpoder?

Creo en lo que hago. Amo mi trabajo. Me han ofrecido otros puestos con más dinero y siempre dije que no porque soy feliz haciendo esto.

¿Qué superpoder te gustaría tener?
La capacidad de hacer desaparecer la corrupción en todo el mundo. Estoy convencida de que sin corrupción habría menos pobreza.

Cuéntanos cómo el trabajo que vienes realizando está generando cambios en la vida de las mujeres, sobre todo a nivel personal, familiar y nivel de sociedad.

En una ocasión hicimos una convocatoria de 59 mujeres para sumarse a este proyecto… ¡y llegaron 700! Algunas ya trabajaban con la basura y otras en quehaceres varios e informales. Ese primer día les preguntamos cómo se sentían con sus vidas y la respuesta generalizada fue que muy mal y ni miraban a los ojos porque se avergonzaban de su situación.

Un año después hicimos la misma pregunta y las respuestas fueron: “Soy una mujer emprendedora”; “Soy empresaria”, “Soy feliz”, “Me siento buena madre”. Y además no solo miraban a la cara, sino que abrazaban y sonreían.

Tiyatien Health is a Changemaker

Undefined

Tiyatien Health, a winner in the Rethinking Mental Health competition, is treating the effects of decades of brutal war in Liberia by training non-doctor health workers and clinicians to work directly with citizens of one of the poorest countries on Earth. The founders are survivors of Liberia's civil war and people living with HIV/AIDS.

Tiyatien Health trained the first non-physicians to administer anti-retroviral therapy in Liberia,and provided the first-ever HIV/AIDS treatments in southeastern Liberia, the poorest corner of the country. Now it is expanding beyond providing public HIV/AIDS treatment to rural communities by working to reverse decades of untreated depression and epilepsy.

Wikiloc: Blazing Trails for Geotourism

Nobody was more surprised that Wikiloc’s website for crowdsourcing hiking and walking trails was a winner of the Changemakers / National Geographic 2009 Geotourism Challenge than its founder, Jordi Ramot.

The soft-spoken, pony-tailed software engineer was invited to travel from his home in the Pyrenees mountains in northeast Spain to the annual Geotourism Change Summit at National Geographic’s headquarters last week in Washington, D.C. where he was “amazed to be able to work with people from National Geographic.”

Do you think GMOs are safe?

Undefined

“There is no evidence that it’s more nutritious. There’s no evidence that it’s more safe. It’s not sustainable. It’s not any healthier, but it certainly is expensive.”

-Dr. Bruce Chassy, Dept. of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Illinois, on the belief that organic foods are a safer alternative to GMO foods.
