5 Stories to read this weekend (23 April 2016)

Inspired by Om Malik, I decided to write a post about Weekend Reading that consist of 5 stories/things to read this weekend. This first post covers wide range of issues from sustainable development goals, creative disruptive movement, career, celebration of Kartini Day and the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. Have a nice weekend.
