Save paper, ink and trees - Green File Format, by WWF

Good idea, well explained

Every day, entire forests are cut down to make paper. Paper that’s senselessly used to print out documents all over the world: websites, emails, even entire books, in spite of the fact that it's easy to avoid printing by saving the document as a PDF. But even PDFs can sometimes also be printed out. So to stop unnecessary printing and encourage a new awareness about the use of paper, we’ve developed a new, green file format: WWF. A format that can’t be printed out. A simple idea that saves trees. Join in. Decide for yourself which of your documents don’t need printing - and save them as WWF.

Solar powered toothbrush kills germs!

When light shines on the handle, electrons are transmitted to the top of the brush where they cause a chemical reaction with the acid in the mouth. No more toothpaste - sounds great to me :-) Read more on IdeaConnection

Open Source House - compition with Award to day

Open Source House

The challenge
Sustainable and affordable housing in urban areas; that’s the challenge! Before 2020 OS-house wants to build 100.000 houses, to provide better living conditions in low-income countries, such as Ghana. Architects and students around the world are challenged to contribute their ideas in the design competition. The winning designs will be built as a pilot in Ghana. After the competition the designs can be shared, improved and upgraded on an international online platform. And so the Open Source House knowledge and designs are made available to a large group of people all around the world.

The winner

Sociaal Kapitaal benutten

Dit artikel op gaat over innovatie, over verandering en hoe dat proces eruit ziet. Iets wat ik herken in de manier waarop we Open Innovation Capital organiseren.

Sociaal kapitaal als startpunt voor organisatievernieuwing

Het is alweer een tijd geleden dat we een bijeenkomst hebben georganiseerd, ben erg benieuwd hoe het staat met alle ideeën en initiatieven die gestart zijn of verder gebracht zijn of in slaap gesust zijn sinds we gestart zijn in 2008.

Wordt vervolgd.
