Our Concepting phase has concluded. We took everything we learned during the Inspiration phase and used those insights to develop our own creative ideas to address the challenge question. Check out the fresh thinking and head over to the current phase to join our collaborative efforts.
The geometry of the built environment can have a tremendous impact on what human interactions are likely to take place. The concept presented here is that Singapore should question its current high rise model.
Civic Shift (CS) teams & communities of practice enable citizens to build, share & apply ideas that make their cities flourish. External, top-down solutions don't work or don't last. CS residents & stakeholders collaborate for breakthrough results.

iContribute is a conceptual platform that takes in data, ideas, suggestions and complaints(DISC). It aims to be a simple tool where it takes in all sorts of DISC from anyone with a phone or through the website.

Before talking about change, even do a great action: A (paperbased) tool to ask people if they see the street get better or worse in a year, ignites the brain, sense of home belonging, inspires to act and connects Ngo/Gov/Local data needs!
Community Recycling Centers in each town would be managed by the residents or Town Councils, and serve as a community space and platform where residents can come together to learn and participate in reducing, reusing and recycling waste materials.
It's not rocket science; it is the age-old, time-proven method of using competition to spur behaviours in keeping the surroundings clean. What might be new, though, are the creative ideas around rewards.
IDEO San Francisco held a concepting brainstorm today. We got really excited about the potential of community spaces to bring people and neighbours to create something meaningful for their communities.
