All visuals, summaries and presentations

Dear Talent Forum participants,

Our videographer made videos of all the presentations, but we still have to be a bit patient until we receive them and can post them here. In the mean time, I am sharing the short summaries you provided as well as the illustrations and the links to your presentations.

It has been a privilege to work with all of you!

Group 1: Smartchoice.net

What action can young people take to help promote responsible growth and consumption within the next 10 years?

The foundation of all change in growth and consumption is education. How can young people improve things directly? Students should get active and participate in the decision-making process at their school.

Environmental issues like global warming, mass consumption and topics like sustainability will be discussed on a platform. Our platform will connect students all around the globe, so they can take a look at other improvements proposed and accepted around the world.

Smart Choice – the place where students can make a difference by voting on suggestions from their fellow students.

Group 2: The Green Gap

What do we, as a society, need to contribute to smarter growth and consumption in the next 20 years to create a lasting impact?

 -

Let’s converge classical tuition with an inspiring environment: We create the Green Gap; an innovative new approach in the school schedule.

Students leave the class room once a month to get a mind-changing boost of hands-on experience. The supermarket, the butcher, the farm – to get away from our shapeless thoughts.

Imagine the impact on the parents, learning from their kids about the slaughter of a pig and getting an empathic idea of the inconvenient truth!

Group 3: SWEEPEE: Ocean-based Autonomous Vehicle for Water purification & Waste Collection

What will be the big innovation of the next 10 years in the area of ecology that will change the way we think about growth and consumption?

Sweepee starts empty and sweeps the ocean to collect water and solid waste from the sea to transform it into potable water. The collected water is cleaned from plastic and trash and later separated from salt. The plastic is processed into cubes.

The drinkable water and processed plastic will be sold to clients or donated to poor people.

Group 4: BLOK Electronics

What science driven idea will make us more concious and smarter consumers by 2025?

-

Our idea tackles the problem of the throwing away electronic devices when just one partdoes not work anymore. Is this throwing away smart? Certainly not! Our science driven solution is based on the development of easily interchangeable electronic blocks. So less trash is produced and a greener world is created. Maybe the solution to some problems of today?

Group 5 Less work – more community

Imagine a low growth world. What will be the business models that drive this world and make it a positive place for all?

Let’s picture a slow growth world. In this world economy needs less working power and therefore, a lot of people are out of work. This has to change. To stop this the society splits up the remaining work. Therefore all people will work part time – in our scenario 50 %. This new society spends their free time in community houses.

Group 6 - Polar Bear App

What solutions will help more humans to become greener and fairer consumers by 2025?

-

The Polar Bear App motivates people to be greener/fairer by linking their consumption to the salvation of their threatened avatar. It’s easy : Before buying a product/service, scan it with your mobile device, and information concerning its green- and fairness appears. The greener your lifestyle, the better off your avatar.

Group 7: Piezoelectricity – step by step towards energy autonomy

What solutions will help more humans to become greener and fairer consumers by 2025?

 

The movement of people and vehicles contains a tremendous electric potential which can be made useable by piezoelectric plates.

Not all this crowd-produced power will be used immediately, but locally stored in potential forms (e.g. chemical and mechanical).

This crowd-produced energy will raise people’s awareness for the value of power.

Group 9 – Buy Aware  

Which new policy relating to technology and ecology  will influence smart and sustainable progress in the next 10 years?

-

The implementation of a data collection system that analyses your online consumption patterns and grades them according to their sustainability. The system is state-funded while the products/companies get rated by several state-chosen NGOs. A browser-plugin/app will send you an alert when you buy an unsustainable product and in the end of the year every consumer will get his personal footprint.

Group 10: ECOOL

Which ground breaking sustainable business idea (product or service) will convince your future investor as well as consumers?

-

We created an app that helps students reduce consumption and compare themselves to others. It measures water/energy consumption and waste production, rewarding exemplary behavior with points, and penalizing poor behavior with point deduction. Net points can be traded in for discounts on various product/services.
