Guias locales

A lo largo de los últimos años hemos notado un auge espectacular de plataformas colaborativas orientadas al turismo y a los viajes.

Conclusiones de la Coworking Spain Conference y siguientes pasos

Con vistas a seguir avanzando en el objetivo de crear lo que sería el primer espacio de coworking en Ceuta, esta vez escribo en castellano directamente desde mi blog personal. Este espacio llamado LinkingPositive (que se traduciría algo así como enlazando en positivo) lo creé en 2012 cuando empecé a entusiasmarme ante el potencial que podría … Read more…

¿Señales para una necesidad de cambio?

Crowdfunding

About a month and a half back, just after finishing my talk about the collaborative economy at my hometown in front of 70 Portuguese visitors (who had come due to the 600th anniversary of the Portuguese conquest of Ceuta), I remember that the president of the Agavi association (Antonio de Souza-Cardoso) immediately highlighted the importance … Read more…

Education as a central issue

Education

The educational field is definitely an exciting area that is experiencing changes, and where the collaborative economy is starting to play a role. I have been a student for many years and I often think that the education system prepares us for a world that no longer exists, probably because there are no longer enough … Read more…

A weapon with two ends

Communication

This week I will talk mainly about communication, or often the absence of it. It’s a paradox, we live in the era of telecommunications, social media, video conferences, instant messaging at all times and it doesn’t matter where we are – almost always there is a way to locate us and communicate. This is great … Read more…

We are all experts

A lift in human consciousness towards the environment?

Climate change

I’m resuming my writing on the blog after noticing an interesting coincidence this week. Around the same time the month of Ramadan started for Muslims, we have also seen an unprecedented worldwide call for action by Pope Francis on climate change issues.

It’s perhaps much more simple that what people think

By Kunal Chabaldas – @KChabaldas – #YourTurnChallenge – #day7 I’m writing again after quite some time. Actually I kept up with the first 5 days of the challenge but didn’t manage to keep up the pace. Day 6 was already late and this one was pending from quite some time. Why? Probably due to the … Read more…

About Failure

By Kunal Chabaldas – @KChabaldas – #YourTurnChallenge – #day6 I am writing this post after having the blog fully inactive for a week, my last blogpost was from day 5 of YourTurnChallenge, where we were supposed to “ship” 7 days in a row. Clearly I failed in this challenge, there may be a few reasons to … Read more…

Stuck? Try different things, but find your own way to unstuck yourself

By Kunal Chabaldas – @KChabaldas – #YourTurnChallenge – #day5 I find today’s question quite tricky: “what advice would you give when getting unstuck?” I don’t think I’m much in a position to give very genuine specific advice on this. The precise reason why I took up this challenge was because I am kind of stuck myself … Read more…
