"Lion cubs play-fight to learn social skills. Rats play to learn emotional skills. Monkeys play to learn cognitive skills. And yet, in the last century, we humans have convinced ourselves that play is useless, and learning is supposed to be boring.

"Gosh, no wonder we’re all so miserable.

"Welcome to Explorable Explanations, a hub for learning through play! We’re a disorganized β€œmovement” of artists, coders & educators who want to reunite play and learning."

is organising a series of consultation events across to hear from the public on what more can be done to create a zero-waste society.

@MediaFormat Hi - we may have found a bug (which could be due to another plugin!) - see video.

The menu on our website running Chaplin theme went weird when we incorporated FediEmbedi *plus* widgets on pages.

Otherwise it looked great, thankyou for your amazing work so far (and we totally understand if this is not a priority for you :)

Stating that the #impacts of #ClimateChange are inevitable, the European Environment Agency #EEA calls for a more ambitious #ClimateChangeAdaptation strategy of the #EuropeanUnion and #EU countries.

#Drought, #HeavyRain, #Flooding, #ForestFires and #SeaLevelRise could affect some selected regions in #Europe, including #CentralEurope, the #IberianPeninsula, #Scandinavia, #Brittany and #Venice. All of these impacts make #adaptation to the impacts of climate change crucial.

Just joined @resonatecoop, a streaming music service formed as a multi-stakeholder #platformCoop. Free for artists to join and only $5 for listener-members. They use a model called #stream2own: listen nine times and you own the track. Funds go directly from listener to artist.

Hope others on #SocialCoop are aware of this service. I can imagine a democratic, musician-owned service like this would be great for artists, if it catches on.
