We have just released a new video on CRC HEAD Talks. This video was a presentation made to the recent Spaces and Flows conference in Amsterdam, on November 23, 2013. Professor Ann Dale, Dr. Lenore Newman and Rob Newell explore what makes a place special, how people move through a space, what makes a person keep coming back again and again. The dynamic interplay of place, space, and time is examined through the video's imagery and flow.
Last month, the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) held their annual conference in Cape Town. One the presentations at this conference included reporting on the results of a partnership project, between Community Research Connections and the Sustainability Solutions Group, that investigated the relationship between the cooperative model and sustainable development.
You get what you measure. Measure the wrong thing and you get the wrong behaviors.

A new visualization has been released in the CRC Visualizations section.
This animation conveys the issues that arise from 'the tragedy of the commons' (Hardin, 1968), a situation of resource depletion and/or pollution generation through people acting in their own self-interest around a common good (i.e., the environment). The animation then shows that these issues of resource depletion and adapting to new environmental conditions can be addressed through cooperative solutions.
