Hawai’i’s Shared Futures By Vision Foresight Strategy

Managing the Flood

Good morning, everyone.  Last night we had a very good conversation on the future of education in the state, and I think some of the ideas that went around the room have a reasonable chance of getting a higher profile in the current discourse.  And thankfully, while there are serious obstacles to systemic improvement, just about everyone present seemed to genuinely want to see changes and improvements, and they seem committed to working on implementing them.  Interestingly, nothing truly radical (at least from a futurist’s perspective) in the ‘fixes’; structural changes to be sure, but apparently nothing that isn’t already heard in education and reform circles.  If anyone has any suggestions for concrete changes in our local educational system (explicitly linked to producing the kind of citizens that we want), we’d be happy to through them on the wall for future discussions.

And in line with some of our later conversations from last night, here’s an upbeat video about managing tasks and information, something we’re all struggling to do everyday.

Today, we’re launching the first part of the ‘nonprofit future’ project, and we’ll be conducting our initial working session this afternoon and likely coming up with both cool ideas to consider as well as scoping the focus of the exploration; it will definitely deal with the operational life and reality of local Hawai’i nonprofits.

Think about tomorrow.
