Section 1 – The Social Venture

The Venture

Agriculture today is financed much like any other big business: with a view of investment that only includes financial return. This approach, however, is limited in scope and leads to major negative environmental and social externalities. With few sources of capital available to smaller players in the sector, and with an increasingly competitive marketplace, large-scale agriculture is increasingly squeezing out smaller scale… Continue

Journalist network during a flu pandemic - Imagine 9

I would create a german journalist network where all journalists involved in the pandemic reporting could log in and exchange their information with their colleagues. This network would also offer Q&A to the normal public where journalists could share their wisdom.

Through being in touch with the public the journalists could raise their awareness through their daily action and could act more responsible with their information and their news.

the following five principles.

Five principle bulwarks against denial

1. Legitimize fear. People go into denial because they don't feel… Continue

Picture about three/four-field_crop_rotation - "traditional" knowledge - Act8

I am aware that the idea of three/four-field crop rotation is not traditional knowledge in particular as it started in the 11 century in Europe. However this form of agriculture was cultivated in Europe and is applied in organic farming as well - as it minimizes soil erosion. This kind of traditional knowledge (is and) can be easily transfered to…

what to tell in 2081 - car free days - those were the 1970s in Germany - imagine8

If I would have the chance to pass on my elder wisdom I would tell the future generations about the car free days in Germany in the 1970s - remembering the oil crisis and the scarcity of resources.

The scarcity of resources, in particular that of energy, won't be a topic in 2081 as green mobility and renewable energies became mainstream in the 2050s. However, due to this, worldwide enduring mobility will be a daily fact and days without using transportation will not exist…

Empty tap water bottle flash mob

In 2020 we will only drink tap water in bottles such as them http://tapwater-bottle.com/wh***sale.asp The event I think of could be a huge flash mob with thousands of people that bring an empty tab water bottle - the tab water bottle they use in their daily life.

They could come to the magic fountain play of Barcelona at night bringing their empty bottles and freeze at the squre - while holding their empty bottles over their open mouth.

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.
