Incorporating Aboriginal Wisdom to Promote Ecoliteracy

@ VOL 6 ON MAR 24, 2016

Ecological sustainability is a goal of many Canadian organizations and professionals, including nurses. The most logical source of sustainability wisdom that promotes ecological wholeness are traditional Aboriginal teachings and philosophies. Nursing educational programs are beginning to incorporate Aboriginal wisdom into curriculum to promote holistic nursing care of First Nations, Metis and Inuit people and to help evolve ecoliteracy. Nursing faculty follow a mandate to teach students to be active agents of advocacy for global issues including environmental health and ecology.

This Pechakucha by June Kaminski addresss how students create content to help nurses explore ecological issues and engage in the process of finding solutions to critical issues, and how Aboriginal wisdom supports this. It also explore show the Canadian Nurses for Health of the Environment encourages all Canadian nurses to become involved in promoting ecological sustainability on a national level.

(Un)Conventional Wisdom – Going Against the Grain

@ VOL 5 ON MAR 29, 2018

While researching 18th century mechanical tables by J. F. Oeben [pronounced O-Ben], J. Leko has been nearly kicked-out of such notable museums as the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Cognacq-Jay, Musée de Nissim de Camondo, and the Louvre (Paris), Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), and the Victoria and Albert Museum (London). Actually, the Louvre did turn him away, come to think of it…

He occasionally teaches others and accepts commissions to build things for people that require far too much time!

The Power of PechaKucha

We hand over the controls to PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson -- his Vol. 24 event was held just last night -- who talks about the perks of being a PKN organizer. As a PechaKucha organizer you sometimes ask yourself if it's worth all those hours you put in. But then you go on vacation to Central America and find out you have PechaKucha colleagues in every other city. Take this example with Panama City. I went there by myself and only knew about two places in town, the place I was staying at and the offices of TBWA / Panama, the local producers of PechaKucha Night. From left: Jesper Larsson (PechaKucha Night in Göteborg) and Ricardo Fernández (PechaKucha Night in Panama City). Words of wisdom at the TBWA / Panama office. I had a great time hanging out with local PechaKucha organizers Ricardo Fernández and Juan Cruz Soares Gache. As an organizer I highly recommend you use the power of a 385 city strong network -- what company can compete with that? -- and contact the local organizers of PechaKucha when you are out traveling. It's a great way to get local tips and recommendations, and a chance to discuss and share PKN experiences. While still traveling I also found out that I had been listed as an up-and-comer when Gothenburg's biggest daily newspaper listed "The 100 most influential people in town," simple because of the success of PechaKucha here. The power is there. Let's just not forget that it's there because we all put in all those hours.

Channeling Your Way to a Book

Here's an interesting story from the The Tri-City News about a presenter at this week's PechaKucha Night in Coquitlam Vol. 4, Tina Fiorda, whose recent book was produced using a Ouija board."We are not of the physical world, but we know your physical world better than you do, for our vantage point is one that spans the physical and spiritual.” So starts A Book of Insight, written by the spiritual guides belonging to Coquitlam’s Tilde Cameron and Tina Fiorda of Burnaby — sisters who, over a three-month period, channelled 16 chapters about “wisdom from the other side” via a Ouija board.

What I Learned from Doctor Who

Now an instructor at Cambridge University, Jonathan Baldwin talks about growing up in the 1970s, and the formative impact a certain Doctor had on his young life. In this edition of Presentation of the Day, (from PKN Dundee, Scotland Vol. 5) Jonathan relates to us some of the life lessons he learned while watching Doctor Who. One among these words of wisdom was the idea that one must nurture his/her imagination, ingenuity, and creativity -- it was this notion and many others that led him to become the man he is today.

Engaging Citizens with PechaKucha

PechaKucha used as a best practice for citizenship engagement? That's what happened in Vancouver. 5.Tell Stories – Storytelling can be effective in bringing together a diverse group of people to share experiences in how to improve community. Storytelling can be used to peak citizen interest in an issue and access local wisdom that other methods struggle to access. Storytelling can involve many different kinds of communication—for example, the City of Vancouver partnered with a highly popular monthly “PechaKucha” event to launch the Greenest City 2020 Conversation and the TalkGreentoUs.Ca website. The Pecha Kucha event brought together 13 local change-makers to speak on the subject of Vancouver’s effort to become the Greenest City in the World by 2020. It not only had the largest attendance of any city engagement event in Vancouver’s history, but it also particularly brought new people and demographics into the conversation.

Using images of painted bodies, and a talk laced with quotes by famous people of wisdom, Tirza Shelton shows us how self-enriching it can be to shed the layers we have all been cloaking our true selves in since Adam and Eve first tasted the fruit of knowledge. In “The Naked Truth” from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 9, find out what is at your core.

A Few Things I've Learned About Online Dating

"I was talking to my friend and I said 'I went on another bad first date.' She said, 'Have you ever considered that you are the common denominator in all these bad first dates?'" In A Few Things I've Learned About Online Dating from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 25, Shannon Turner takes the mic with some advice for the fellas out there who might be prowling the interwebs looking for love. Profile photos, balancing weird against honest, what not to do's, etc. Listen as Shannon brings her wisdom to this sometime murky place called "online love" and perhaps come away with some dropped knowledge, like this nugget: "Gentlemen, learn how to have a good conversations...[It's] like a tennis match. It's back and forth."
