The idea is to help people to develop a habit of recycling by gamifying the process of creating habits: Trigger - Behaviour (make it as easy as possible to have early success) - Reward . The basic gaming concept is that people could purchase or downl

Engaging in recycling seems a habit just as doing more sports or eating more healthy. We know a lot about habits. One guy, James Clear who I met a few years ago at the St. Symposium, developed quite deep expertise in habits and how to change them. He

You are on your way home? Dark streets? No people around?
Even in safe cities women feel unconfortable in these situations.

Therefore "Heimwegtelefon" (Translation: Way home phone) offers a phone service that makes women feel more confortable in

Coding and programming is a great and interesting activity; Coder Dojo offers a great and inspring environment for children that want to learn programming. Coding is not only about being analytical but rather demanding creative thinking skills

It's called the independent project. The basic idea: what if kids designed their own schools and classes? Learning formats differ from weekly peer sessions to half year projects. Also the teachers role changes from a mere presentator to a facilitator

Open Space, a largely known large group intervention method, is known for facilitating information sharing, idea generation and enabling flow of communication. Interestingly enough it has its roots in Africa.

Why would a person do sth. that is obviously against human nature (violance to others)? When thinking about this question I felt that maybe the opportunity to act or behave in other ways is (or rather seems) simply not being possible

Stephan commented on Straw what?! Certified

Thx Christel Tardif for your thoughts and feedback. What exactly do you mean by early adopters "selling" the idea? Selling to customers that the drink comes without straw or do you refer to something else.
As this is a multi sided model it is indeed very challenging to build value on both sides through high numbers of bars and site-visitors / customers. With such models the first months or even years are critical. So far I haven't come up with alternatives. How exactly would your partnership solution work? Thank you for any further input and thoughts that you might have in the upcoming days. Stephan

Thx for the Reminder Kate Rushton . Just completed the typeform and hopefully I find some time to create a journey map and reflect on some of Anne-Laure Fayard 's brilliant questions.

Thx Darren Yeo for your comments.
Exactly, the idea is that we award certain businesses with a certificate that represents participation in a plastic free movement and serves as a badge which can be also displayed digitally (like bcorporation)! Issuing the badge for a year or longer or shorter is certainly an important question. It shouldn't be easy to get unless you commit to banning straws in your bar/restaurant but of course you should be able to celebrate your success for some time.

Of course: it's important to test how important straws really are fro (perceived) quality. My feeling is that we use because we get it but this feeling needs some back up / testing.

Do you have a restaurant, café, bar or any other business of that sort?
