George Bernard Shaw: Unreasonable!

George Bernard Shaw is quoted to have said: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

What do you make if this sense of Chutzpah?

One of the three objectives for the 10 City Bridge Run is: “Knowledge sharing through engaging a ‘design community’ in a collaborative creative process of inquiry to tackle the issue of child mortality.”

What would it look like to connect people making big impact with great ideas with other people who have never really thought about making a difference at all? That has the potential to exploit the greatest untapped resource on the planet- ourselves!

To get a sense of where these ideas might be, watch this short video from The Unreasonable Institute:

When everyone with the ideas is inside of one room, this concept is simple. When they are distributed across the globe, it becomes a design challenge. How can we engage with this conversation to make a real difference in reducing child mortality. Or is it just unreasonable and fanciful thinking?
