About this Research Topic | Stream 3

| In 2007 Paul Hawkin, author of Blessed Unrest estimated that there were one to two million organizations worldwide working toward ecological sustainability. They are all working towards a living purpose for human creativity + invention. Hawkin notes that these organizations are “working on the most salient issues of our day: climate change, poverty, deforestation, peace, water, hunger, conservation, human rights, and more.” Given the recent political events in the U.S. and in the spirit of Blessed Unrest, we have chosen to reframe the #C3 ReSearch Stream 3 around curating and participating in creation of the worldwide Ecosocial Story of a living society + world. A cohesive, compelling and actionable story redefining the fundamental vision of human development is needed now more than ever.

The development and curation of a new living story has underpinned the C3 Living Design Project’s greater purpose since we opened our blog in November of 2013.  The project seeks to both create and to integrate available living design knowledge into a cohesive, salient + actionable story about the past, present and future of our planet and its inhabitants. Stream 3 will pursue ideas that help to flesh out this story

About this Research Topic | Stream 3

While working with the C3 ReSearch Stream 1 over the past few months, we began to see the need for a deep and thorough ‘thought revolution’ in the way designers see the world and the way we think.  While changing the way we think has long been one of our key areas of ReSearch at C3 Living Design, the latest round of explorations has brought greater clarity and definition to the issue.

The complexity surrounding the big design tasks of the 21st century beg us to take our creative problem solving  skills to the next significant level. And it will be a significant change. Change similar to that which brought about the scientific-industrial revolution of the 1700’s.  The impacts of climate change, water scarcity and global urbanization are coupling with rapidly changing computer technology and a volatile socio-economic realm to shake the structure of modern problem-solving and design thought off it’s foundations.

From our perspective, design now requires more applied systems, integrative + interdisciplinary design thinking.  Pattern Thinking makes this list as well and we see it as a a form of Systems Thinking. In response to this new understanding, we’ll be shifting design process + method ReSearch from Stream 1 (What is the Role of Design in a Resilient Society) to Stream 3 allowing Stream 1 to focus more closely on designs’ role within our larger society | This ReSearch topic was started on June 27 ,2016

We’re currently exploring the current technologies and potential for converting water to hydrogen + storing it using Wind Power. See the Twitter + Pinterest streams below. June 26, 2016: We’ve completed our ReSearch on this topic for the moment and we’ll be switching Stream 3 to a new issue: “Applied Systems, Integrative + Interdisciplinary Thinking” after June 27, 2016.

Scroll the Twitter and Pinterest panels down to find the research for converting water to hydrogen + storing it using Wind Power.
