Towards a Talent Explosion for Sustainable Development
A society that fully deploys content commons, open data and smart media solutions in its initiatives "differs from" the current society in each of the three realms Operations, Monitoring & Evaluation and Change.
In each realm, partnerships face specific capacity and capability problems (in the contemporary society, see the right-hand side of the figure below), and specific improvement targets could be expressed (left-hand side of the figure).
Solving the realm-specific problems by fit "collective and open access" institutions and by creating fluid and lean content will spur a Talent Explosion in the (sustainable) development interactions1 in each of many economic activities and functions of government in all engaged national and local constituencies, for agreed sustainable development goals and targets.
Synergy by fluid, lean, engaging and open content should become effective in the partnership interactions across realms and "sector-specific" initiatives. This is explained in more detail and with several references at Collective Decision Frames (Ens Dictionary) and in the Wikiworx page about the Post 2015 Partnership Capability.
Partnership interactions under the Addis Ababa Action Agenda involve actors at the four "socio-technical" levels in the social architecture:
- pico, the persons members of households,
- micro, the organisations including business,
- meso, federations of organisations in the same sector or with a similar interest, and
- macro, entities with transversal, landscape-wide responsibilities;
All three realms matter for all actors:
and are differentiated by:
- their material and content scope, ranging over many economic activities and functions of government,
- the implied economies (scale, scope, quality) that are possible, and
- the desirability of collective action.
Implications for the Dictionary Focus
Focus in this dictionary is on interactions with strong improvement potential for collaborative approaches. The approaches we advocate include:
- the use (in the blueprint, TO BE) of wiki-based durable content actants (as explained at Durable Content Actants (Actant Dictionary));
- the provision of systematized content commons;
- the use of structured hashtags (Actor Atlas Tag pivot) when sharing content via social media, this is in order to achieve a discourse that is both inclusive and converging;
- low hurdle access to open data, such as World Data Atlas (Knoema).
