Hydroelectric turbines for green, decentralized energy.
MARR’s mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art, community, and waste systems. The Moab area is highly impacted by the tourism industry and, as a result, waste management. By facilitating artists’ direct engagement with the waste stream, MARR encourages resident artists to consider their studio practice through the lens of sustainability and to thoughtfully re-assess their processes of material sourcing and waste disposal.
Through a 4-week residency, the program offers artists studio space, project and community facilitation, a stipend, access to materials at local waste disposal sites, and the time and space to focus solely on their art. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialog and enrichment within the community.
The Solar Biennale, an initiative of solar designers Marjan van Aubel and Pauline van Dongen, counterbalances the prevailing technological and economic viewpoints on solar energy. For seven weeks, the biennale focuses on the human angle: a solar-powered world goes beyond scientific research and uniform solar panels, after all. Cultural practices and place-specific energy needs also determine how the post-carbon future will develop.
We design and build products from excess fabrics and waste.
Diese Arbeit zeigt anhand von drei exemplarischen Produkten wie reparierbares Produktdesign aussieht. Zehn Richtlinien klären dabei über notwendige Vorraussetzungen auf und motivieren Nutzende, sich selbst an der Reparatur zu versuchen.
Finding Function In Unexpected Places.
900 trillion tonnes of food is wasted yearly, and so I challenged myself to turn this abundance of “waste” into utility. In this project, the wasted food was reincarnated twice. Firstly, it was given a second life as a bioplastic or a bioleather after a thorough experimentation with recipes. Next, the results were made into a myriad of physical and digital prototypes. Safe to say that one man’s food waste is another man’s treasure.

rehub is a lab that aims to give a second chance to waste materials using cutting-edge processes
DIY reigns in the virtual world. With so many old points of friction removed, we can freely and cheaply build our own blogs, e-books, and Web magazines. But making real, live stuff still seems like a slog reserved for those who know their way around a bandsaw.
APC’s local access and community networks team hosted a webinar called “We ♥ Bamboo: How to grow and construct your own bamboo masts for extending rural connectivity – sharing experiences”. The aim of the webinar was to offer guidance to those who would like to build bamboo community network towers or further develop their work in this area. The organisers invited practitioners from India, Indonesia and Mexico with field experience in using bamboo for construction to share their knowledge and explore opportunities to use bamboo towers for extending rural internet connectivity and connecting the unconnected.

Preventing waste generation, especially non-recyclable waste, would deliver the greatest benefits for the environment. The reduction in waste needed to meet the target would require very ambitious waste prevention measures to be implemented at both EU and Member State levels, for instance by increasing the lifespan of consumer goods and ensuring strong support for product reuse.
