NETWORK AND DATA DEVELOPMENT
The Lemongrass Tangent project
No project, program, product or company can exist without linkages and connections. Sun Walking is investigating and exploring the links in sustainable development and the data necessary for integration and resilience of such a linkage system. This is our Lemongrass Tangent project, aiming to untangle the web of connections for breakthroughs and identify points of synapse for sustainable, economic development for those at the local level who do not know or have access points. Moreover, it is the introduction for those to find power in these digital and technological tools to add efficiency and effectiveness to their work. Here we are talking about applied research for farmers, migratory peoples, dispossessed and disadvantaged communities to have tools from planting to predictive analytics, from AI to human ingenuity and workforce investment.
The Knowledge Platform
To develop such a system, a knowledge platform - data development, models, analyses, etc., are key inputs for ascertaining how to "move the chain." Coupled with a connectivity system is knowing what knowledge to disseminate to achieve the best results, not compromising the integrity of the information or process.
It also requires reaching out beyond borders. Sun Walking has focused on a specific term for its connectivity. Each country, culture has a word (or two) that conveys this. For the Chinese, it is a word, "he zuo", which loosely translated means "cooperation-work" or to work cooperatively or in collaboration.
Included in this database are theories and practices that use existing resources; find funding and financing mechanisms, and integrate standards of humanity and integrity to the basic human condition. Weaving this data and connectivity tools support system is a part of the Lemongrass Tangent project.
