Top 6 Apps for Flipping Your Classroom | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

Teachers all over the world are flipping their classrooms. Instead of doing homework and projects at home, students watch lectures and videos.

The 8 Most Interesting Ideas to Revolutionize Urban Farms

The 8 Most Interesting Ideas to Revolutionize Urban Farms | Social Mercor | Scoop.it
These vertical spaces could change how we grow.

 

As the vertical farming trend has taken off in recent years, many architects and designers have begun tackling the question of how to marry agriculture with architecture. Here’s a look at some of our favorite concepts (most of them un-built) for fanciful food-producing pyramids, geodesic domes, flower pods, and insects

 

Visit the link for a list of conceptual projects ranging from Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut‘s design for the 132-story Dragonfly, a solar- and wind-powered vertical-garden concept for New York City’s Roosevelt Island— to Plantagon’s now-iconic design for a geodesic greenhouse...

Is This The World's First 100% Organic, Chemically Free Nation? | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

Wake Up World

The tiny Himalayan country of Bhutan serves as home to just 738,000 people—about the population of Alaska. But this tiny landlocked nation is on track to make one of the biggest pro-organic moves in the world.... http://wakeup-world.com/2012/10/24/is-this-the-worlds-first-100-organic-nation/

 

Go organic! If they can do it, we can too. We just lack the political will, for now.
A new awakening is needed to establish the practicality and sustainability of going organic.

 

Bhutan Pledges to be First 100% Organic, Chemically-Free Nation

The small nation of Bhutan, nestled in the Himalayas between China and India, is committed to becoming the first "hundred percent organic" "chemical-free" nation within decade.

50 Cans

 50 Cans

50 Cans is the largest aluminum can drive run by young people. You’ll be making a huge difference by collecting and recycling aluminum, and at the same time, you can become a drive guru by using our Pocket Guide, which teaches you the ropes all through text messages.

The aluminum can is one of the most valuable recyclable consumer products and the only packaging solution that allows for complete recyclability. Recycled aluminum cans can be back on the store shelf in as little as 60 days and require 95% less energy, generate 95% less emission and create 97% less water pollution than producing the new metal from ore. An aluminum can is incredibly valuable; the industry estimates that, in the United States, nearly 50 billion aluminum cans are thrown away annually; that's $800 million annually being buried in American landfills.

New green design methods to revolutionize the building industry... | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

If you want a preview of the downtown Vancouver streetscape in 2035, start with a walk down Granville or Georgia Street today.

Most of the buildings will still be standing. There will be additions and replacements, but most of the changes that will transform downtown's living, work and retail space will be undetectable from the sidewalk. That includes upgrades to water and energy systems in buildings that in 2012 are models of inefficiency by contemporary standards, let alone future ones.

"If you are thinking 2035, realistically 80% of the buildings that will be in existence at that time have already been constructed," said Innes Hood, a professional engineer and senior associate with Stantec Consulting, a consulting firm with 12,000 planners, architects, engineers, project managers and experts, working in teams to break down the boundaries between designers, contractors and investors, while using advanced computer modelling programs.

 

Retrofits are crucial.

One of Hood's main assignments is overseeing the redevelopment of existing buildings. More often than not, that means uncovering, through energy audits, glaring examples of waste - air leaks, inadequate insulation, inefficient heating and ventilation systems.

"We are involved in residential projects where we can achieve 80-per-cent reduction in energy use and become essentially greenhouse gas neutral through the implementation of cost-effective technologies," Hood said. "We're not having to strive to the leading edge. These are tried and true technologies around good building enclosures and high-performance mechanical systems such as heat pump technology...

3 ways for companies to protect water resources and save money

3 ways for companies to protect water resources and save money | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

The Carbon Disclosure Project and General Electric both released reports on water this week. While the focus of the reports varied—CDP looked at how many companies are tracking, reporting and doing something about their impact on water while GE surveyed the general public to gauge consumer attitudes about water usage—the conclusions were roughly the same: Everyone knows we need to do something about water consumption, and there are plenty of opportunities to do so profitably. Those opportunities break down generally into three categories: reducing usage, reusing water and improving infrastructure.
