Sustainability on German Festivals

While reading a friend's blog post on urgent evoke, I realised that already many german music festivals have sustainability programs. Almost every festival pays back a mortgage for collected waste, and some festivals have sustainability guidelines regarding their organisation. I found an interesting article in the german newspaper "Zeit": http://www.zeit.de/kultur/musik/2010-06/green-festivals. My favourite Festival, the…

My city

Here you can see some of the ideas that I had for my city. Hopefully some of the inventions necessary for this to occur come about quickly. What I find interesting, is that most of what we are taught about resilience can be enacted today, requiring community support and interest. Now that I have proposed this, I plan on going to some of the places, and seeing if I can make some of these things happen.

Water Bikes

I learned of a new invention that might just save the water supply of many foreign countries. The Aquaduct is a bicycle that purifies water as the rider pedals. This is essential because it doesn't burn fossil fuels like vehicles, or fires [to purify water]. Water is gathered miles away in foreign cities, and with this bike, by the time they return home, the water is purified. Great Idea, I think so.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
