Developing a collective human intelligence unit through shared learning and transferring skills; people - not only actions - are sustainable
The most recent statistics estimate world population as 6.96 billion. I believe each of us in this gigantic number has something to offer - be it knowledge, skill, experience or emotion. Imagine an open space where the offering is shared and adapted by the next human being. A management trainee in UK can teach a start-up social entrepreneur in Bangladesh simple managerial skills, while a teenage school student in Sierra Leone can teach a European high school teacher about localizing learning. If the dots are aptly connected, each of us will play a crucial role - as a friend, a teacher, a mentor and a learner - hence, collectively developing human capital. Knowledge is always transferrable and we can achieve greater social progress and peace through the sharing of this knowledge.
The action plan utilizes a social networking tool like Facebook, where we are already sharing information - and transforms it into a social mentorship tool. The information gap is closed when interested groups of people are connected with someone with more experience, and so on. This can be particularly feasible with younger groups, who often suffer from lack of guidance and mentorship - and play a critical role in shaping their perspectives as a global citizen for future. CEOs connected directly to their target markets, teachers with students - all in an open space for sharing knowledge. No mind will go to waste and create a more understanding forum for peace, globalization and diversity to coexist.
