How Could We Make Great Explainer Videos?

I have found that people like to watch brief explainers videos (2-3 minutes) that help them get up t speed quickly on a topic.

I have been prototyping videos around design thinking in this shorter format: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2BcAWKNMlRw5Kw3p2_PO35v3IvrD-V7V

In my first book, 20YEARS COMMUNICATIONS (https://www.amazon.com/20YEARS-Communications-Leaders-Questions-Lessons/dp/0989555046) we produced... more »

Feedback Mechanisms

As an author, I try to share information that gets my reader thinking. Often, they have questions or comments about the material.

How might we provide a feedback mechanism from the reader to authors(s)? How might we use this to facilitate a conversation that creates an inspired reader that takes action?

I have used hashtags on social media, and relied on social monitoring to become alerted to the questions. I have provided... more »

How Might We Co-Create with Cruise Lines

Cruise lines sell different types of adventures to different types of people. Some people like one things, others another. What if we collaborated with cruise lines to develop unique travel adventures and excursions that compliment or align with the issues we face on Lesvos?

For instance, there are many people who are environmentally conscious and committed to help protect the ocean. Can we create an excursion for people... more »

What's Your Problem?

I Cant Buy Toilet Paper!

Every time I go to the store to buy toilet paper its all gone before I get there!

 

I have seen on the news that people are buying much more than they need, and it leaves none for the rest of us. I have heard people are hoarding paper because they think there will be a shortage.

 

What can we do to stop unnecessary buying of products that are still readily available?

Marine litters on shoreline: citizen science on monitoring beach

Plastics pose a considerable threat to the livelihood of the aquatic species and ecosystems as they can transport bio-accumulative harmful pollutants over long time intervals.

Serv Tracker from a volunteers prospective

How do we make serv tracker the best it can be for our volunteer drivers. Inconsistent language used in the app and route book count summaries is confusing. Map function relies on having good connectivity and detailed location maps to assist drivers to find their location. Maps doesn't work well with senior apartments or communities. Consolidating meal counts at a single driver stop. We should think of serv tracker which... more »

What's Your Problem?

Routes too long

How can we shorten the routes to allow more time for our drivers to socialize at a safe Covid distance with our seniors? Route lengths have increase. Routing is based on number of stops not actual drive times or physicality required for each stop. Apartment complexes are way more complex than a single family home in the burbs. We should commit to a standard that a volunteer route should not take more than 60-75 minutes... more »

What's Your Problem?

Food choices

Having watched three parents age in place witnessing the challenges of daily life. Each having unique problems and situations. A husband and wife are not a single unit rather two people with two sets of varying challenges and two sets of food tastes. Having said all that... the one thing they all had in common was a fondness for hearty soups and ice cream. We don't serve either. We should figure out a way to delivery... more »
