Following is a partial list of projects that inspire us and that we hope will inspire your understanding of what we call "slow design." Some of these projects are our own, others have influenced the organization's thinking and programming. The projects are grouped according to the guiding principles of slow design that slowLab has arrived at after much reflection, dialogue and iteration: Reveal, Expand, Reflect, Engage, Participate, Evolve.

This past summer, Zenph Sound Innovations had a problem. Zenph is a North Carolina-based company specializing in computer-generated “re-performances” of classic recordings with astounding results. But Zenph’s latest project — “The Spanish Masters,” featuring renowned cellist Zuill Bailey and soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian accompanying recreations of century-old piano-playing — was coming in over budget. That’s when Zenph’s management took a cue from the project’s setting, Manifold Recording Studio, which was designed with both old-school live performance and new-school open-source philosophy in mind. Manifold co-owner Michael Tiemann suggested that Zenph go the crowd-funding route to raise the money needed. “I proposed that we offset the costs by holding a recording salon,” Tiemann says.

By Meghan Keneally UPDATED: 23:22 GMT, 17 December 2011 It is a tool the older generation never needed - relying on a good old fashioned knock on the door. But as the digital generation becomes ever more insular, now a string of social networks are seeking to help us reconnect with our neighbours. Websites like Nextdoor.com, EveryBlock.com and HeyNeighbor.com hope to bring neighbors together by allowing them to knock on each others virtual doors and be less of a bother than if they were to do so physically. Help a neighbor out: Nextdoor.com only allows people who truly live in the neighborhood to participate by limiting access
Due to generous support by the London Borough of Hackney’s Waste and Recycling Department we are able to offer a wide range of activities free of charge to schools in Hackney. All the workshops are curriculum-linked and are for up to 30 pupils each. We have a flexible number of workshops to offer, depending on the size of the school. An assembly will be delivered as part of each option.
Our vision is a world where we use resources sustainably and make a positive contribution to each other and the environment. We help people to waste less and live more. Waste Watch is now part of Keep Britain Tidy with whom we merged in 2011. Together we exist to inspire, educate and enable people to be litter free, waste less and live more. We believe improving our environment is a positive message that goes hand in hand with improving our well-being and happiness in life.
New Computer Game Simulates Challenges of Global Warming A British company has developed a new computer game that allows players to save the planet from the effects of global warming — at least in a simulated setting. “ Fate of the World ,” produced by the gaming company Red Redemption, places players at the head of a global environmental organization — a “ UN with teeth ” — charged with saving the world over the next 200 years in the face of rising temperatures, diminishing resources, disappearing ecosystems, and growing population. Using actual climate models and data from scientists at the University of Oxford, players can confront these challenges globally through a variety of policies — including cap-and-trade, promotion of renewable energy, and geoengineering schemes.

That little green slab creates electricity. I almost wrote on these cool energy-producing sidewalks in October when I was writing a post for MyEnergy on kinetic energy . We’ve written on kinetic energy many times here on CleanTechnica, as you can see from this excerpt of that MyEnergy post (note: the first link and 4 others are not stories on our site, but the rest are):
I'm With the Bears: Short Stories from a Damaged Planet. 6 Culture The Introduction a new collection of short stories, tackling the cost of global warming. The problem with writing about global warming may be that the truth is larger than usually makes for good fiction. It’s pure pulp. Consider the recent past, consider a single year, 2010.
When Donnachadh McCarthy decided he wanted to generate his own electricity using a wind turbine, he almost fell at the first hurdle. The planning application was initially refused after a neighbour objected - over what turned out to be an unnecessary concern. "She said it was going to kill her cat," he said, "Which it wasn't. "She also thought it was going to be 2.4m which is almost double the size." Mr McCarthy reassured the neighbour that it would not harm any pets or wildlife and asked Southwark Council officers to change their minds.
Author: James Murray-White - Updated: 1 July 2010 | Comment Dealing with the huge amount of waste being thrown into landfill sites on a daily basis and exploring the growing need to find new solutions to the massive consumption of power and energy in the western world, are two areas scientists are examining right now. With the first problem, coping with waste, educating the public to use less and recycle more is the first part of the solution, but that still leaves the problem of what to do with the waste we already have?
