RSA Spotlights – taking you straight to the heart of the event, highlighting our favourite moments and key talking points.
We are living in a change of eras. Our current models of energy, finance and healthcare are not sustainable for the future. We need new solutions based on ecological, human-friendly relationships. We need new organizational structures focused on meaningfulness and new economic principles. With a new consciousness we can improve quality of life for vulnerable citizens at a lower cost.
In this excerpt from the event, Humanity Above Bureaucracy, Jos de Blok, founder and CEO of Buurtzorg, discusses how simplifying organisational structures encourage trust, while integrating simplification offers a great deal more for society than bureaucratic and hierarchic organisations, making daily work more meaningful and sustainable.
Jos de Blok visits the RSA to receive the 2014 Albert Medal for his pioneering role as founder and CEO of Buurtzorg, and to show how the movement can now spread to the rest of the world.
