This concept encourages employees to compost, it’s a fun way to stimulate each other to eat more healthy foods, it reduces the companies’ waste, and it generates free fertilizer to nurture the corporate garden!
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.
In organizations, food is a cost, which is managed top-down. Employees eat what is served, because the kitchen staff makes meals with the ingredients that are supplied. Food should not be a hidden necessity; it can connect and increase productivity.
Thanks! I hope one of these concepts has the chance to be refined.
I was thinking, it'd be great to have the possibility to 'merge' concepts when both authors agree. It would combine the best of different worlds and promote collaboration. I might send Meena a message one day with some thoughts to improve openIDEO.
Anyway, I think this concept combined with 'How Does My Health Compare' could have a big impact on employee health & fitness!
On a network like Foursquare you get points by checking in.
We could do something similar, but you'd need to check in twice. At the starting point of your healthy activity, and at arrival. A cheating check could be performed by the time in between the two check-ins. You can select, "walking", "running" or "bicycle", and the app would calculate your speed.
Hashtags might indeed be useful. #bycicle #TeamFinance #Start and followed by #Stop could do the same as checking in.
We could design a lot of great badges for the foursquare extension!

Great concept! I can shape my own space, with colleagues we can change the common spaces where we eat, and before you know it, companies will make the craziest structures, show it off, and end up in a "module war".
