Landscape of Change

This is a perspective on our rapidly changing world. Think of it like a rough sketch map to help us find our way as we stumble (or run, or slide, or whatever) into the future. It's an image that is developing all the time and helps me to make sense of things. Some other people find it helpful too. More perspectives are welcome.

The initiators

Pamela McLean - and various future-oriented friends and contacts (past and present) whose actions and generous sharing of ideas have influenced my thinking.

Pamela first contributed to Crown Agents courses at the invitation of David McLean (no relative).  She did half-day presentations related to the work in Ago-Are during courses that David was presenting

She was then asked directly by Crown Agents to provide day long sessions on two courses specifically for Nigerian local government leaders.  Her courses focussed on Millenium  Development Goals and the relevance of ICT.  The courses included practical work relevant to Internet access in Nigeria.
