I enjoy being a staff writer for 3BL Media/Justmeans on topics - Social Innovation, Social Enterprise and Social Entrepreneurs. When I am not writing for 3BL Media/Justmeans, I wear my other hat as owner of Serendipity PR. Over the years I have worked with high-profile, big, powerful brands and organisations within the public, not-for-profit and corporate sectors; and won awards from my industry. I believe in the power of serendipity for business and superheroes. I also am a Twitter lover and believe that social media is a digital constellation:connecting people in an easily explored galaxy. I would also describe myself as a Spiritual Entrepreneur, Conscious Explorer and Futurist. I enjoy helping others, paying it forward and being a mum.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - So who are the smartest companies right now? Who is shaking things up with innovation? Who is making a difference? The MIT Technology Review is out and has published its list of the “50 Smartest Companies,” those organizations that have made a difference through innovation over the past year. Familiar names such as Apple and Facebook aren’t on this list because reputation doesn’t matter. The criteria, says the Review is, “...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Every year, tens of millions of sharks die a slow death because of finning. Finning is the cruel practice of hacking off the shark’s fins and throwing its still- living body back into the sea. The shark either starves to death or is eaten alive by other fish, or drowns because if they are not in constant movement, their gills cannot extract oxygen from the water. Shark fins are being taken in ever greater numbers to feed the growing demand for shark fin soup, an Asian delicacy. The indiscriminate slaughter of this valuable fish is happening at an unsustainable rate and is pushing...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The number of women in science, technology and innovation in the world’s leading economies is alarmingly low and actually on the decline in several, including the U.S. Women remain severely under-represented in degree programs for these fields. Even in countries where the numbers of women studying science and technology have increased, more women are not finding their way into the workplace. This why the recent winners of the 2014 Elsevier Foundation prizes are impressive not only for their research, but for their potential, as these awards and recognition could bring exciting new opportunities...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Brown coal is making an unexpected return in Germany, a country often regarded as a role model for its strong push for renewable energy and a world leader for tackling climate change, as about a quarter of the nation’s electricity comes from renewable sources. Brown coal electricity production in Germany rose last year to its highest level since 1990, despite the country’s campaign to shift to green sources of energy. Alternative energy has great public support here; big subsidies have helped push solar and wind power forward in the past decade. Moreover, politicians have...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - While Britain’s coast line has been battered by storms and high-winds, and the country under flood, something magical has emerged: a prehistoric forest of hundreds of oaks that died more than 4,500 years ago, along beaches in Cardigan Bay. The recent storms have offered a glimpse into the past of the Welsh coastline, by washing away peat and revealing the stunning remains of ancient forests.

The location of Borth's submerged...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - New maps show that the Earth is rapidly running out of fertile land, and that food production will soon be unable to keep up with the world's burgeoning population. London is one city where the population is growing fast and space is running out. So, how would you produce vast amounts of food to feed London? How would you do it without any environmental impact? Well, two entrepreneurs, Richard Ballard and Steven Dring, have teamed up with Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr to create a carbon neutral working farm, Zero Carbon Food. Here’s the thing: it will be located in an extensive tunnel network beneath London’s...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Poor nutrition in the first 1,000 days of children’s lives can have irreversible consequences: for millions of children, as it means they are forever stunted. These children are smaller than their peers, more susceptible to sickness and in school, they often fall behind in class. When they become adults they are more likely to be overweight, more prone to non-communicable disease and when they start work, they often earn less than their non-stunted co-workers. Globally, about one in four children under...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - America spends over $160 billion annually on obesity-related medical costs. This figure is expected to double by 2018. Obesity treatment represents a significant portion of the $2.5 trillion total spent on health and wellness across the country. Now, more than ever, solutions are needed to tackle this growing issue (no pun intended). The U.S. has the second highest obesity rate in the world, after Mexico.

There are lots of individual costs too, that make obesity an expensive issue as there’s lost life...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Making a promise is easy; the hard bit is keeping it. A promise was the inspiration behind Promise or Pay, a newly launched social enterprise start-up that creates a far more fun and empowering way for individuals to donate to organisations making a difference in the world. Jay Boolkin, founder, set up the platform in 2013 after realising he had not kept any of his 2013 New Year resolutions. After some research, he found that the chances of following through on promises would be enhanced if money were pledged as part of it. Research shows...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The increased occurrence of extreme weather events means that climate change is rising on boardroom agendas, and many companies perceive these risks as a real and present danger. Extreme weather events are causing significant financial damage to markets; governments seeking to build strong economies are taking note. It includes the White House, which announced in 2012 that the Defence Department was making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy, including solar, wind, biomass or geothermal on Army, Navy and Air Force...
