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) - Companies like FedEx and UPS are using electronically assisted trikes to deliver packages locally in Europe. The tricycles work perfectly in many European cities, which have narrow streets that make manoeuvring even small delivery vans difficult. FedEx is plying a number of tricycles in Paris, which run on a 250-watt electric motor, supplemented with pedal power. The company has partnered with Urban Cab, a transportation service, with pedal-powered “rickshaws” around the city. UPS has its “Cargo Cruiser”- a pilot project launched in 2012 at its depot in Dortmund Germany. It is...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies and that this potentially life threatening disease affects one in every 13 children (under 18 years of age) in the U.S. That’s roughly two in every classroom! The economic cost of children’s food allergies is nearly $25 billion per year. A study released in 2013 by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention shows that food allergies among children increased approximately 50 per cent between 1997 and 2011. Unfortunately, although the number of people who have a food allergy is growing, but there is no clear answer why.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Just like the rest of the world, Ethiopia is experiencing the effects of climate change. Besides the direct effects such as an increase in temperature or a change in rainfall patterns, climate change also presents the necessity and opportunity to switch to a new, sustainable development model. So Africa's biggest wind farm, the Ashegoda windfarm has begun operation in Ethiopia. Billed as the biggest in sub-Saharan Africa, it has crucial potential for the continent's renewable energy industry, aiding efforts to diversify electricity generation from hydropower plants and help the country become a major regional exporter of energy. Currently, the Horn...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - While physical health and safety in the workplace remains of paramount concern, more recently there has been a growing recognition of the importance of psychosocial issues, with a focus on the psychological, values and social elements of work.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - There is something going on in California called CollectiveSun™, a community-driven solar investment platform that works exclusively with not-for-profits to help finance their sustainable solar power projects. CollectiveSun™ has recognised that this “third sector” is one of the most underserved segments in the distribution of solar energy and wanted to change things. It saw the solution, which was simply to offer investments in solar with great returns for investors, where the collective dollars raised from the investments help fund the sustainable solar power project that, in turn, helps these...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Global healthcare costs have risen in both the developed world and in developing nations, particularly in the markets of the developing world, where demand for medicines is set to continue to grow rapidly over the next 13 years.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Exploitation and the trading of conflict minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is helping to finance conflict characterised by extreme levels of violence in the eastern DRC. This battle has claimed more than 5.4 million lives since it began in the late 1990’s. Mining activity is crucial to the DRC economy. However, some mines are controlled by militant groups causing serious social and environmental issues in the region such as grave human rights abuses, theft, extortion, violence over control and taxation of mineral resources and forced child labour.
