Who else is inventing creative, sustainable ways to power our everyday lives?

Meet Jessica, a real power player: she invented a soccer ball that generates electricity when you kick it. Play a quick game of soccer with your friends, and you can power your household light for an entire evening.

Jessica tested her idea in South Africa and Kenya. Now she has her own company called sOccket to help her spread her big idea all over the world. And she's not the only young social innovator changing where and how we can get power.

Meet Hugo, born and raised in South Africa. He makes technology that allows anyone, anywhere to make electricity from dirt in their own backyard. To share his solution, Hugo started a company called Lebone -- pronounced [La - bo - ney] -- it's the Northern Sotho word for light, lamp, or candle.

Your LEARN mission this week is to figure out: Who else is inventing creative, sustainable ways to power our everyday lives? Find someone working on a creative electricity project, or a sustainable energy project -- and tell the network about their big idea.


Find the power players:

Try searching "social entrepreneur" and "electricity", OR "social innovation" and "energy", OR "sustainable energy" and "creative solution". Whose great idea can YOU discover?


Your objective:

Find a POWER PLAYER: someone who is working on an amazing electricity or sustainable energy project. Share your discovery with the network in a blog post, photo or video.


This objective is worth +3 knowledge share.

Saving the planet's water one donation at a time!

In an effort to form an alliance with a water conservationist, I sought to research the best ways for me to better provide for a water-rich society. In my search, I discovered many organizations and various ways to help, but one group that stood out most to me is the Water Charity. Through productive and community organizing programs, Water Charity seeks to provide funds for needed projects to help bring water and different resources to regions of the world in need. My participation in this…See More
