Create open competitions for all students, artists & volunteering teams. Let them build/construct/create sculptures out of trash collected locally. Auction these art objects to raise money for more local environmental & charitable work.

Have you ever been curious about what the other commuters listen to in their earphones? Curious enough to ask them if you can eavesdrop?

Johan commented on Green Energy Social App

Doing a project with anything about electricity efficiency can lead to higher awareness about wind mills and hybrid cars and so on...


Johan commented on Green Energy Social App

I am thinking holistically, renewables will be needed, reducing power losses and effectivising domestic appliances and industrial uses of electricity will be of equal importance, and systems can focus on both, simultaneously and parallell.

It would be silly to develop an App for one purpose only, and ignore the potential to use it for similar purposes that are interconnected and very closely related at the consumers daily life.


Johan commented on Wasted battery energy and senseless battery pollution.

Do you think it could be some kind of better use of batteries in another type or form, after harnessing the "leftovers"? I mean the chemical contents or the material from the casing? Could it be some type of construction that separate them into recyclable and reusable materials and be sold back as raw material to battery or electric industries?

Hey Jason!
We were so inspired by your participation in the Local Food and Vibrant Cities Challenges that we want to be sure you're in the know about our Renewable Energy Challenge – which is now in the Ideas Phase: We'd love if you might swing by and collaborate + share some of the energy you contributed to the Local Food and Vibrant Cities Challenges so that we can help communities around the world become rapidly renewable. Hope to see you there before Jan 25!
