Imagination and Innovation can give objects a second life

April 2, 2013

We present a new challenge, in which we look for ideas that can extend the life of products we use daily and then throw away without thinking twice. What if we did something with them? We can lengthen the life of many products by giving them new uses.

There are already many examples of how we can give objects a second useful life, with a little imagination and inventiveness.

Here are some examples that will inspire you:
Sprout, a pencil that holds a seed inside it, so that you can plant it when you’re done with it.

Red Leaf Project, paper coasters that also contain seeds that can be planted after they have been used

We even found other ideas as original as transforming an old T-shirt into a belt.

And why not check out all of these inspiring ideas, which you can find in our Pinterest board, “Handmade ideas”.

What are you waiting for? Share your ideas!

We’re looking for ideas that will make cities more intelligent ¿What are yours?

September 21, 2012

A urban revolution is here thanks to the technology now available, capable of giving rise to what is known as the Smart City. Current technology such as data transfer, geolocation, etc. makes life easier for citizens in more sustainable urban spaces.

These advances now make it possible to interact with the environment we live in, for instance by looking up which areas of the city have more traffic, or where you can find special shopping offers in town.

In the new Month´s Challenge, we want you to share ideas that will make your city more intelligent and technological, delivering us a better quality of life.

Until October 31th.

New Challenge of the Month to support bicycles in cities: Come ride with us!

June 11, 2012

You can share your ideas until July 15th and help achieve the complete recognition of bicycles as a viable means of transportation.

Traffic congestion and pollution are at their highest ever, parking your car isn’t getting any easier, and public transportation is that little bit more expensive every year. Bicycles, on the other hand, are green and healthy, and a good solution that is becoming more and more prominent in urban areas.

Think about it, we want to hear your ideas!
Here is all the information.
