Forest improve your water supply in a sustainable way!

The amount of water globally is pretty much fixed, yet, at a local level, water supply is affected by several environmental conditions as weather, vegetation, orography, etc. While we can't do much to change most of them, vegetation is one we can modify which can increase local water supply. I found this text about this kind of environmental services from forest: Forests and Water LinkagesWater in theory is the most renewable of resources. Yet, careless use, population growth, and increasing…See More

Imagine 03 - Celebrating the Wind building

It's 21th March, 2020. A strong wind blows as the 1st year celebration of the Wind building is taking place. A very innovative building build in the Baja California's Cost where a great beach was crowned with one of the most environmental friendly buildings in the worldThis tall building was called Wind because all its energy needs were solved with wind. To do that the designers took advantage of its big size: 120 floors and 9 blocks of base it´s a lot of space!The temperature difference from…See More

Alternative exchange system

This can be called a "local" karma system but basically the systems works this way:


Help everyone so you'll get help when you need it!!!


I think the system needs no further…

Future of money: No money in basic needs?

People try to fix economy with new ways of getting money... but what if we think outside of the box? what if money is the problem?


Money is just a way to evaluate and interchange the value of thinks. As good as that is if we have a good price allocation system (so if we can correctly evaluate the value of things and set it as a price) the true is that many (all?) of all the important things can`t be correctly priced. What's the value of clean water? of life? of…

Joining some water movement -> Water and Youth!

For this mission I remembered a friend who told me that worked in water issues, so I went to his facebook, got the webpage of Water and Youth and got there. I was surprised to see that it´s a social network, so I joined it and I'm starting to get to use it. I'm not really sure how much I can do there, but I already started a group about Environmental Services and Water which I believe is an important issue. Hope to get some discussion about this there (and maybe also here =P) so feel free to… Continue

Look up Tekio and the Green Dome Project, they're doing some cool work in Mexico City. As for other urban farm projects, ANIA has a really cool program in Spanish for teaching children about transforming their communities.
