    Self-recovery after urban disaster

    WUF: Self-recovery after urban disaster

    resilienturbanism.org

    For the last year or so I've been pouring my life into a project called Thinking Development. We're unveiling something to the world: a design for a sustainable, eco-friendly, safe and inspiring school in urban Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We worked with the largest educators of women in Haiti after they lost schools in the devastating 2010 earthquake, to produce this plan for permanent reconstruction. Can you help spread the word or make a donation? Thank you so much!

    Palestinian refugees have seen little benefit from the many researchers who have visited their camps. To tell stories and conduct research, one would do well to remember that refugees deserve our sensitivity when dealing with their hardships. It’s been 65 years and Palestinians in the camps are still clutching onto whatever crumbs of hope or aid they can. But ultimately they are left awaiting the day they can return to the place where their dignity and humanity can be restored: Palestine.

    Palestinian refugees are not at your service

    Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world.
