Festival des Utopies Concrètes - Transition et  Permaculture – Du 27 septembre au 7 octobre 2012 – Paris et Ile-de-France | #smartcities | Scoop.it

L’idée de ce Festival est d’être un moment de réflexion et de rencontres, basé sur des échanges, des partages et des retours d’expériences à partir d’initiatives locales sur des thématiques aussi vastes que l’agriculture urbaine ou péri-urbaine, l’alimentation, le recyclage, l’énergie, les transports, les monnaies complémentaires, l’habitat collectif ou partagé, systèmes d »échanges locaux…

SMALLKNOT | | #smartcities | Scoop.it

Smallknot lets you invest in the small businesses in your community in exchange for goods, services, special perks and benefits. Work exclusively with local businesses that are looking to expand and grow but need a little extra capital to get there.

For a lot of local businesses, even very successful ones, projects like these get put on hold or never happen because of a lack of access to capital.

 

Banks don't lend to the smallest businesses in your neighborhood, and credit cards are costly and expensive. With Smallknot, you can help fund a project in your neighborhood and get back real value paid back in kind and at a premium.

Noomad Bike: bici de 2 ruedas delanteras para uso urbano

Noomad Bike: bici de 2 ruedas delanteras para uso urbano | #smartcities | Scoop.it

"Pensamos en la infraestructura que utilizan las bicis pero no en la bici en sí. ¿Por qué no mejoramos el medio con el que nos movemos en la ciudad? Tenemos que innovar en función del uso que hacen las personas que la utilizan. Hay muchas necesidades que no están satisfechas”, indica Andoni García, fundador de Noomad Bike junto a Antonio Guerra. “Muchos ciudadanos necesitan la bici para llevar a su hijo al colegio, para ir a trabajar o para transportar mercancías pero las bicicletas convencionales no están preparadas para esa utilización”.

Este sistema de doble rueda nació de una intención: “Queremos hacer que las personas se muevan mejor en el entorno urbano. Observamos el norte de Europa y vimos lo que están haciendo allí. Las bicis se utilizan a diario para llevar a los niños a la escuela y llevar la compra a casa. Con una bicicleta así tienes el 90% de tus necesidades cubiertas”.

 

El sistema de Noomad se diseñó haciendo énfasis en la seguridad de las personas que la utilizan. “Proporciona la misma movilidad pero ofrece más seguridad. Bascula y, además, permite que el que la lleva pueda estar parado sin poner los pies en el suelo. Esto hace posible que utilicen estas bicis personas con capacidad motora restringida y personas mayores con menos equilibrio que los jóvenes”, especifica el fundador.

English community takes collective ownership of solar farm.

 

A group of community members about 75 miles west of London have launched a citizen takeover of a 5 megawatt solar photovoltaic array, aiming to buy it back from the financiers who helped it get built on a farmer's land a year ago. Through a share offering, the group is hoping to create the world's largest cooperatively owned solar farm.

How charities are using digital technology to solve problems

Charities should partner with experts in digital technology and social media, says Dan Sutch...

 

The importance of new 'value relationships' and partnerships will increase as new technologies, new opportunities and economic context demands new ways of building social value. But partnerships can be long term and organisational, or short term and personal. What is important though, is that we find ways of bringing in new expertise, ideas and skills to the sector, to take advantage of digital technology to address social challenges.

Paisaje Transversal: Esto no es un solar

Paisaje Transversal: Esto no es un solar | #smartcities | Scoop.it

Participación ciudadana en la propuesta

Las actuaciones se realizan en torno a una serie de premisas entre las que cabe destacar la participación ciudadana, pues cada solar es fruto de un proceso de diálogo con la comunidad. Además se le da especial importancia a que los vecinos contratados para el acondicionamiento de los solares se impliquen en el desarrollo del programa. Finalmente resulta remarcable el bajo coste de la intervenciones.

Para hacer efectiva esta participación el equipo se puso en contacto con las juntas de distrito y las asociaciones vecinales que propusieron el uso destinado a los distintos solares, haciendolos partícipes del proceso de proyecto para conseguir una solución conjunta.

Detroit redémarre en mode DIY (Do It Yourself)

Detroit redémarre en mode DIY (Do It  Yourself) | #smartcities | Scoop.it

Déclarée plusieurs fois en faillite depuis 2011, Detroit est une ville est à l’abandon, vidée de sa population, de ses commerces et grandes entreprises. Après la période glorieuse du fordisme et de la production automobile, puis les ravages de la désindustrialisation dès les années soixante, les habitants dépendent aujourd’hui de leur propre ingéniosité pour subvenir à leurs besoins. Un renouveau qui préfigure peut-être la société de demain : une économie locale post-industrielle basée sur la bidouille et le partage.
