(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Will Adoasi, the entrepreneur behind the philanthropic watch brand Vitae London, is set to launch his Season IV, a unisex range of watches that is backed by Sir Richard Branson. Sitting at the helm of a social business, Adosai seeks to combine fashion with social justice, where the sale of each watch provides a child in Southern Africa with two sets of school uniform, a bag and footwear to see them through a year of education. The idea for Adoasi’s brand came after he and his wife visited South Africa in 2010. Adosai is a Virgin StartUp...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Superhero and action movies dominate the box office and are perennial hits across the world, yet it’s disappointing to see how under-represented female leads are in this genre. The number is actually fewer than one in ten where the leading film and TV characters from superhero films and TV series have been female: just 6.5% of releases feature a woman ‘hero’ in a starring role. The research by Will Brooker, Professor of Cultural Studies at Kingston University, was commissioned by The...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Nigeria is the leading economy in Africa right now. It’s also an exciting place to be a woman entrepreneur—a place where 40% of the women run their own business. However, it is not always easy to run a business, as the country has its difficulties and challenges. Nigeria currently ranks 170 out of 189 in the World Bank’s ease of doing business ranking. The problems range from power supply—especially if running a manufacturing plant—to the promotion of African products, and there is a long way to go in consumers accepting products that are not...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – We know that animals have always played an important role in agriculture. Now, with rising public awareness of the way animals are raised for food, animal health and welfare is an important area for businesses today — particularly for consumer-facing brands.

Around 70% of chickens raised for meat globally are bred in intensive industrial farming systems. This includes the majority of chickens in the UK, Europe and the US as well as the rapidly increasing numbers in developing countries. Intensively farmed chickens are reared to...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Rapid technological advances and the digitization of the workplace are making it harder for workers to match their skill sets with the needs of employers. Worryingly, 90% of organisations currently have an IT skills shortage, while 75% of educators and students feel there is a gap in their ability to meet the skills needs of the IT workforce. The World Economic Forum estimates that 65% of children entering primary school will find themselves in occupations that will not exist by 2020 and is estimated that there will be 1.5 million new digital jobs across the globe....

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Thanks to years of research, the links between smoking and cancer are now very clear. It is widely accepted that smoking is, by far, the biggest preventable cause of cancer. Chemicals in cigarette smoke enter our blood stream and can affect the entire body. This is why smoking causes so many diseases, including at least 14 types of cancer, heart disease and various lung diseases. In the US, it causes one in five deaths every year, and is why CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) has...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – We know that today, there are so many items that can be upcycled, from paper to plastic to clothes, but it’s rare that we hear about flowers being given a new lease of life. Well, that’s what’s happening in Portland, Oregon, where a not-for-profit called ‘The Bloom Project’ upcycles unsold flowers from grocery stores into fresh bouquets for hospice and palliative care patients on a weekly basis. Local businesses, residents and special events donate flowers and vases, making it a real...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Good health is at the top of most wish lists for governments and individuals. As physical and mental well-being makes it easier for people to pursue opportunities to work and study, to remain financially secure, physically independent and to maintain strong relationships. A healthy population is also a productive workforce—one that would relieve considerable strain on the public purse by keeping well. Promoting health and wellbeing in our societies helps to empower communities and individuals. It also puts focus on the wider social determinants of health that need to be addressed. These factors are why the ‘...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Globally, the current water crisis is critical. According to the UN, water use has grown at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century. By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water shortage. While, right now, in India 76 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water, a problem that is going to escalate if no immediate action is taken.

For instance, iron, which causes respiratory system hemorrhage when mixed with drinking water, was found in water supplied to 30% of rural India. While arsenic, which causes skin lesions and cancer, was found in the...
