A periodical of what we're up to, our thoughts on social change, and everything else.
One of my favourite travel memories is helping to prepare and eat a community dinner in the town of Hillerød, Denmark, during the inaugural UNLEASH Innovation Lab for the SDGS. For a few hours we forgot our projects and deadlines and ate with the town, sharing a vegetarian curry prepared by the Folk School, shared stories, and played soccer and ping pong.
It's always remarkable how quickly food brings people together. It's the glue of community. And, we've been thinking about food a lot. Even as far as starting our own spur: cookbook. Below you'll find a delicious Thai breakfast idea, from our friend Midnight, whom I met at a similar event to UNLEASH, and soon became a collaborator for our 123+ project.
After almost two years of distance, food has a great way of helping us feel like we're together. Even if we can't actually be in the same room. Sharing food helps us connect. Even if it's been a long time since we've seen each other.
The spur: Standard is another way we're connecting and reflecting. A lot's been happening, so each month we're sharing some of our favourites, from a new tool to use in solving complex social challenges to all the juicy details on how we tackled one of our own, as well as what we're up to, reading, and thinking about.
The spur: Standard is our monthly love letter and we invite you to follow along.
