(Video) Copenhagen Climate Adaptation Plan

Clever Solutions to a Serious Water Problem

This film was short but informative. I found it interesting how Copenhagen plans to handle this problem. In the long run with all the blue and green layers to delay water consumption, it could be more of a blessing than a problem for the people of Copenhagen. The Vector Animation made the concept easy to understand. Good luck Copenhagen!

The Copenhagen Climate Adaptation Plan was nominated for INDEX: Award for it’s innovative approach to water disbursal. Take a look at this clever animation that breaks it all down.

The goal of the CAP is to act in time, so we can choose the right places to act and the most appropriate measures, so that Copenhagen will be a safe and attractive major city to live in and invest in, in the future as well – even with a changing climate

When Mother Nature sends you a friend request –
Accept it.

Entrepreneurs take chances. They roll the dice. They plant seeds and keep an eye on things. Applying these principals to growing something can do marvellous things for your mental and physical health. Not to mention a few raised eyebrows from the lady who walks her dog by your house every day.

Social Networking from the Heavens

Working from Home is not for everyone. But for those who make it work, the things you have to do, slowly become the things that you want to do. Not sure how. They just do.

Even “chores” like cleaning the garage, or raking some leaves, become little customized puzzles that lead to great rewards and feelings of self-accomplishment. It’s all in how you look at it. Adjust your perspective accordingly.
You will also find that it clears some of the clutter in your mind, making you more prepared to tackle other challenges.

Luck favours the prepared

Waste Not Want Not – Eco friendly bag from Lee

Allot of thought has gone into this simple retail bag. It’s more than just a means to carry home a pair of Lee jeans. It also has life well beyond the sale. Creative application and a positive branding message about the company’s environmental stance. Very fun.

“With the relevance of eco-friendly initiatives increasing every day, Lee wanted an innovative solution that would display their affiliation towards the same and also spread the message amongst their customers.
To drive the message home in a fun and effective way, we went for something a bit more inventive than just a bag made of recycled paper. The ‘Never Wasted’ shopping bag that can be reused in one way or another. Some for fun, some for function, but nothing ever goes into the trash. Not only did this make the idea long-lasting and interactive but also conveyed the message in a fascinating manner. Word spread, footfall increased and the initial production of 3000 bags went on to another 10,000.”
