infrastructure livelihoods global issues: Need to redefine value and prosperity:
Move away from monetary value only
Alternative measures of GDP increasingly developed and integrated

individuals and communities embrace mutual respect and human solidarity
government, business and civil society work to build a better Africa and better world Key shaping forces:

Energy transitions, food security, climate change and new technologies
African development: SA strong growth, however from a low base; losing competitiveness to Nigeria, Angola, East African community
Demographic change Key Issues

High unemployment
Low quality of education for poor black South Africans
Poor infrastructure
SA's growth path is highly resource-intensive and unsustainable
Spatial challenges marginalise poor (spatial apartheid)
Public health: massive disease burden (low life expectancy, high infant mortality, HIV, injury, infectious diseases)
Performance of public service is uneven: progressive constitution not living up to aspiration but poor performance
Corruption
Divided society along racial lines
+ High crime, violence, insecurity -> public spaces Our Future 2040 Vision, National Development Plan by the National Commission

Design - Helsinki Design Lab: Strategic Design for societal challenges, Design Can Do Mobilisation Implementation Diffusion Impact Actors and drivers of the new paradigm who address social, environmental and economic issues, recognising interconnectedness and structural relationships. A grassroots, bottom-up symptom of an emerging economy that is more social and green. Old paradigms (Murray et al, Open Book, 2010 p4)

"As during earlier technological and social transformations, there is a disjunction between existing structures and institutions and what’s needed now. This is as true for the private as for the social economy. New paradigms tend to flourish in areas where the institutions are most open to them, and where the forces of the old are weak. So, for example, there is more innovation around self-management of diseases and public health than around hospitals;
more innovation around recycling and energy efficiency than around large scale energy production; more innovation around public participation than in parliaments and assemblies; and more innovation around active ageing than around pension provision." MDG's:
eradicating extreme poverty and hunger,
achieving universal primary education,
promoting gender equality and empowering women
reducing child mortality rates,
improving maternal health,
combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases,
ensuring environmental sustainability, and
developing a global partnership for development. first concentrated effort by global leaders to commit to goals SDG's:

common interests and goals to address or overcome social needs/issues
Desirable social innovation based on the creation of new ideas displaying a positive impact on the quality and/or quantity of life. Actors who recognise current global, societal, environmental challenges and find opportunities in overcoming them: per Schumpeter and Say real entrepreneurs and innovators! Source: National Planning Commission, Diagnostic Overview Issues Reinforcing and driving forward social economy:

The intensive use of distributed networks to sustain and manage relationships, helped by broadband, mobile and other means of communication.
Blurred boundaries between production and consumption.
An emphasis on collaboration and on repeated interactions, care and maintenance rather than one-off consumption.
A strong role for values and missions. (Open Book, p 7) Replication
