Wow..already a week has passed.
My weekend links are the weekly roundup of what I came across this week on the web – blogosphere, twittosphere, and online media – and that are representative of what’s going in the CSR and Sustainability space. In few words, some online conversations that caught my attention!
Link no.1: A China link to start. A ‘reference’ blog on everything related to civil society in China that point us to a new study on a number of issues related to the development of China’s civil society. Good read.
Link no.2: Another China link to continue. This is this week’ s China CSR newsletter, here. Just to show you how product quality and corporate responses to quality and safety issues are today at the top of public perceptions and CSR expectations in China, because of strong concerns and distrust on the consumers’ side (following many scandals, i.e. tainted milk), strong government activism on these issues, and media aggressivly reporting complaints involving MNCs, etc.
Link no.3 & no.4: Bloggers are further exploring the alignment and links between social media and sustainability, here linking to another blogpost here for a snapshot of “the 12 faces of social media for green marketers and sellers of sustainability”. Good read.
Link no.5: Following the recent/current buzz around the GoodGuide and Wal-Mart’s green index, an recent conversation with Daniel Goleman published here. He is the author of Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything. With no surprise, it is not easy buying green.
Finally this week, some great talks this week at TEDGlobal, in Oxford (UK). Will check the videos out as soon as they will be released.
