Combining concepts!

How do you see the world around you and what do you imagine it could become? The core concept of trace is drawing on top of an image of our environment. It's a quick and fun way to visualize a new reality and to communicate ideas with others.

Building on the possibilities this initiative could have, with a strong knowledge of prior examples.

Have you ever been curious about what the other commuters listen to in their earphones?
Curious enough to ask them if you can eavesdrop?

More than ever people are linked with social networks.
So...what if we had an interactive plug in for Facebook or/and other social networks that would make us know what the community needs on a specific moment?
You help! + you get help if you need!

Great idea about the chess club. And I have no doubt there will be more :).

The gulf between intent and action can often be attributed to perceived barriers. The World Benefit Compass helps companies take that first essential step by reducing perceived barriers to participating as an agent of world benefit.

External/internal teams assembled for the purpose of identifying a Company’s unique ‘world benefit’ tactics/strategies. Teams are then split up and re-configured / re-assembled with other companies, and so on, to keep ‘changing it forward.’

If you want to change the world, you might want to start with the next generation of leaders. And as OpenIDEO is popular in several schools, maybe there's one that can start the Masters of World Benefit program.

Johan commented on Bicyclist protection on car hoods

Hi, Lauren.
I am also excited to learn more - about how consumers and car owners and Nike think and feel about my idea.
I just came up with the idea.
Someone else will have to worry about the rest.

Johan commented on Green Energy Social App

Johan commented on Green Energy Social App

I am thinking holistically, renewables will be needed, reducing power losses and effectivising domestic appliances and industrial uses of electricity will be of equal importance, and systems can focus on both, simultaneously and parallell.

It would be silly to develop an App for one purpose only, and ignore the potential to use it for similar purposes that are interconnected and very closely related at the consumers daily life.
