For those interested in social transformation, changing ways of seeing, the
role of sense-making in change-making, the role of challenge reframing in
social transformation, roles of next design in transformation, change
enabling, design as discourse, transformation in action, rethinking that
sustainability thing, inclusive innovation, distributed creativity, creating
a more human-centered world, transformation close to home, etc:

The Measure of America, the first-ever human development report for a
wealthy, developed nation was officially launched yesterday in Washington.

Carefully crafted by the authors to be nonpartisan, we are hopeful that The
Measure of America 2008-2009 will become a significant catalyst for
human-centered societal change in the United States.

³The Measure of America: American Human Development Report 2008-2009 is the
first time the human development approach has been applied in the United
States or any other industrialized nation. The report introduces a single
measure - the American Human Development Index - that will help
policymakers, business and non-profit leaders, the media and people all over
the country understand the countryıs current circumstances in a clear and
unique way.²
