Proof of concept for “connecting the local with the virtual”
The screenshot from the tweetchat feed shows the part of the virtual audience around the globe. This has been a proof of concept for “connecting the local and the virtual” – despite the challenging timezone difference for Europe and Africa (e.g. the Chicago 6:15 pm beginning meant Berlin 1:15 am).

On the 13th September, Social Capital World Forum (SCWF) and Social Enterprise Alliance Chicago Chapter (SEA/Chicago) will present the event
“NEXT GENERATION OF SOCIAL ENTERPRISE” (Local and Live streamed)
This event will take place in Chicago (Illinois) at Groupon Grassroots headquarters. At the same time, we will follow it from the SCWF Living Bridges Planet (Facebook page) live broadcasting!
“Next Generation of Social Enterprise” was the subject chosen to give the audience an insight into new ways of thinking about social enterprise and entrepreneurship – from a nonprofit, for-profit and academic perspective. This theme will include corporate interest in the Social Enterprise industry from a community development and funding perspective, public sector interest in the industry, and non-traditional thinking as it relates to funding, marketing and building capacity.
At this site and also through our Facebook groups, you will get an update with news from the event.
Partners involved in the organization of the event:
Debra D. Schwartz is Director of Program- related Investments (PRIs) for the MacArthur Foundation and Illinois Task Force Member
Jessica Malkin, Executive Director, Chicago Ideas Week
Moderator: Marc Lane, Chair of Illinois Task Force on Social Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Enterprise
Ongoing conversation before and after the event at LIVING BRIDGES PLANET, please feel free to join us and include there people you may think it could be interested on the next generation of Social Enterprise.
First time I am trying “re-blogging” on wordpress, similar to re-tweeting on twitter … instead of paraphrasing I let the original speak, giving the author a stage. – I very much like the image of the prototype/bricolage. Can you see the bridge? The original appearance is on credible.se – thank you very much for your great coverage Melissa Bergado Edfeldt!
I was given the opportunity to participate in a seminar called Living Bridges for Social Entrepreneurs, a meeting to co-create and work on the substance of the coming Social Capital World Forum in Gothenberg in December. The Hub in Copenhagen was the arena for this meeting and provided creative energy and a positive atmosphere in wich we could collaborate.
Kaj Voetmann, the CEO of AI Community Denmark (and his group of facilitators) set the stage with Appreciative Inquiry – a process traditional to strength based change management. Together with 30 people from around the world with working backgrounds in different sectors, we defined some of the problems facing social innovation and how we can help to fill the gaps. Examples of these gaps can be defined as hinders in knowledge transfer, cultural barriers, the confines of corporate governance, finance limitations or be as visible as less developed infrastructure in developing countries.
Bridging some thoughts first
I got up early to watch the landing of the NASA vehicle “curiosity” live. Actually I have my reservations to spend so much money in space missions while the urgent challenges on our precious planet Earth wait for our collective action. But watching the cheering of the team made clear that this thing is connected to the issue of social capital, creating collaborative culture – and how the impossible is made possible when there is a unifying vision! And let me associate with the name of that vehicle another thought: Curiosity is a source and virtue of the folks bridging networks and domains, bravely jumping between huge gaps –what do you think?
Five stages of tribal leadership Most of you know Logan’s TED talk – if not, then please watch instantly! I want to share with you that great graphics, that I found on the ENPRAXIS LUGAR PROJECT community site. All the best for you folks! – And you, dear user, feel free to download this graphics as a screen background delivering essential wisdom 🙂
The great metaphor of “Living Bridges” resulted in good resonance in the newly started facebook group LIVING BRIDGES Planet.
Currently we strive to complete the ecosystem to something that facilitates and empowers the creation and circulation of the manifold capitals especially trust, knowledge, creativity. Beneath is a proposal from some blog post, which has been mentioned in the SOCAP Network group. How to structure and name our ressources and energies adequately is a permanent task. Though the following graphics and concept (with capital as the leading metaphor) might be controversial it points to the issue of looking always beyond social capital too and to practice an integrated view of the levels and depth in human existence!
With this multi-dimensionality in mind a quora answering space has been started to engage the living bridges to send ideas to improve the metabolism of mind and soul, the cognitive, emotional and social ressources. Next we want to create some social media channels to increase the “contact space” and serendipity. Youtube, twitter and quora are on the list to play some role to increase the benefit of the single actors and the growing living bridges planet.
Click on the mind map to get there and find the details and updates of the ecosystem.
Every bridger is invited
Please engage with ideas on the quora question: How can we use the huge wealth of the Living Bridges network for good?– The question is targeted on concrete tools, platforms, media and event formats, whether proven by your experience or innovative and promising! To improve exchange, matching and sharing, to foster sustainable collaborations and mentoring. We need not reinvent the wheel, it is just great to communicate, extend and improve the “Changemakers Toolbox”. With this in mind now I want to share the special collection, that Floris Koot has started on Pinterest. See the growing collection of changemakers there! Thanks for the work, Floris! – Just go to this pinterest collection and browse the worldwide change tribes!
I. Video capture of the start of SCWF 2012
Video of the start on March 15th. The two founders Colin Campbell and Dr Manfred Hellrigl talking about the beginnings and the ongoing activities of SCWF.
Dr Manfred Hellrigl around 11m15s: After the team studied the process of real successful changes in society, they found the importance of the mechanisms of self-organisation.
“If you really want to do a powerful work, you should never deliver solutions, but encourage people to take over responsibility and find their own way”
Colin Campbell around 26m00s about the conference/SCWF:
“conference is like a global village” … “opening up the opportunity for people in the world” … “to do their own thing at local level as well”
End of the video, around 30m00s: Integrative artist Joy Lohmann (Germany) in video interview about the global project ASAP-Island, connecting art with social capital – actually conceiving art as “the best social capital”, since art is connecting people.
II. Inspiring video to understand the motto of this year
Update 2012-04-11: Deleted the video link since the former web address was no longer valid. Changeld title a bit. Embedded the #SCWF12 video and adding explaining text. (Willi)
