Encourage building of green buildings.
We can save - and generate - a lot of energy if we think about how we design our structures before we physically create them.  If designs are conscious of energy-saving techniques, the structures themselves, no

Michael commented on The Giving Tree [UPDATED 9 Feb 2015]

I love this idea. I had not considered the aspect of raising community awareness as a bonus, but I now think that such awareness should be a key goal of any project for this challenge. If the people start noticing and talking about something, it can have wide-spread impact.

This idea is great. If enough people get behind it, it can really take off. I like how you are thinking on a large scale - I think an entire city, designed with sustainability in mind, would be amazingly successful.
