Why I like GOOD
Many of you know GOOD by now. But for those who still don’t know GOOD, keep an eye on them, GOOD is amazing! In my opinion, GOOD is exactly the kind of way how we (as humans) can make changes.
“GOOD is a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward. Since 2006 we’ve been making a magazine, videos, and events for people who give a damn. This website is an ongoing exploration of what GOOD is and what it can be.” (via good.is)
You may know GOOD because of their incredible collection of infographics (flickr set). But GOOD is much more. For me GOOD is a daily source of inspiration. I don’t even added it to my feed reader, I go their website everyday to get my daily dose of great ideas.
And yesterday was such a day, when GOOD prooved why I like it so much.
At first they wrote about Hans Rosling, a Professor of International Health from Sweden, he describes the gap between rich and poor countries and what needs to be done to solve these problems. It is a video from 2020 Shaping Ideas, a project/campaign of the telecommunications company Ericsson.
And just 6 hours afterwards, GOOD presented this inspiring video of an impressive project from Los Angeles, Inner City Arts.
“We’ll need creative thinkers to deal with the challenges of the 21st century. But the arts are being crowded out of our schools by testing and choked off by budget cuts. To help make sure the next generation has the imagination to improve the world, Inner City Arts is giving kids a canvas in Los Angeles’s Skid Row neighborhood.” (via good.is)
