    The ONE Campain http://www.one.org/ http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ONENewYork/ As ONE, they are raising public awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger, disease and efforts to fight such problems in the world's poorest countries. My tesis is about Water Crisis in a poor place in India where exist a lot of disease and different problems because of this. I think they will be interest in my idea because their mission is help poor people around the world.

    Water 1st International http://water1st.org/index.html Washington. Water 1st’s mission is to serve families in the poorest communities in the world as they implement community-managed projects that integrate water supply, sanitation, and health education.

    Because my tesis is about Water Crisis this is the perfect organization to help me with my issue because they work on water problems in differents poor places and one of them is India.

    Water AID America http://www.wateraid.org/usa/whatwe_do/howwe_work/default.asp?gclid=CIO286yegJYCFQVxFQodARryFQ WaterAid and its partners work with individuals and families in their communities and use a mixture of low-cost technologies to deliver lasting water, sanitation and hygiene solutions.

    This Organization also work in water crisis and also they are interesting in low -cost technologies, sanitation and hygiene solution and my idea is try to find a way where they car purify their own water with lo cost tecnology.

    Transportation Design

    Problem:

    The problems that are caused by current transportation system, Increase of pollution level CO2, Increase of traffic, Lack of public transportation, Depleting the natural energy resource

    The invention of vehicle was fascinating to the people. People could move comfortably and quickly by using a vehicle, but at the same time it wounds the environment. The number of car increase annually, because of the population growth. The public transportation system around the world is also the problem. Usually the cities have the train or bus, therefore the car is necessary for the outer cities. People search for bigger car for their family and work. This cause car traffic to become worth, lack of parking area and creates more Co2. Co2 is the compound of two chemical oxygen-atoms, which affects the balance of the temperature and pressure around the earth’s atmosphere. This issue is known green house effect. As the balance of the atmosphere loses the control, the more sunlight energy hits the earth and end up increasing the temperature of the earth. When the temperature rises, environment changes, and the lives in nature start to become perplexed and die. As the nature-cycle loses the balance, it will also effect on human. The increase of car also vanishes the natural energy resource, gas. Gas is not unlimited, and it will be soon enough to deplete completely. Many organizations have been developing the alternative for gas; however it has not been successful...

    1.Barrionuevo, Alexei. "Honeybees, Gone With the Wind, Leave Crops and Keepers in Peril." The New York Times 27 Feb. 2007: 1.

    This article introduces the problem of bee disappearing which now researchers call “colony collapse disorder”. Because of importance of bees in agriculture, this problem has direct effect to human beings. The reason of disappearance is still mysterious, thus the article suggests some possibilities of cause, which are stresses, or mites. This article is helpful to me because it provides me facts of the main problem.

    2.Horn, Tammy. Bees in America : How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation. New York: University P of Kentucky, 2005.

    I thought it is important to know history of bees in America because one of the most affected country on this issue is the United States.

    3.Revkin, Andrew C. "Bees Dying: Is it Crisis Or a Phase?" The New York Times 17 July 2007: 3.

    This article questions this whole phenomenon of “bee disappearing” is a real threat to our nation or just a phase that will disappear. I thought that this article relates to most of our behavior about this problem but even in this article admits large declination in hive populations during past few years.

    4.Watanabe, Myrna E. "Colony Collapse Disorder: Many Suspects, No Smoking gun." Bioscience 58 (2008): 384-88.

    This article is the most recent journal I found on this issue, thus I thought it has reliable facts about colony collapse disorder.

  • Hi there,

    Im new to the forums, Thought I would start off by saying hi!

    My name is Julian - I'm a final year Graphic Design student from AUT university in Auckland, New Zealand (Bachelor Graphic Design).

    For my exhibition project, I am looking into the area of ethics and design. Specifically targeting the ideas of ethical responsibility to my fellow peers the next generation of graphic designers.

    Im looking to form ethical values through narrative. Showing through example, (positive and negative) rather than telling people what to do.

    Therefore, If anyone has had any experiences on a job where they have taken a personal stand in favor of their ethical and moral values, or where they have wished they had in hindsight, or even just had a feeling that what they were doing was wrong, I'd love to here from you.

    Private message, email or just reply to me in this thread, I would be extremely thankful for any feedback.

    Depending on the story, I would like to conduct an interview in the form of an electronic survey (Email) or brief description of the job. These will be used on a 'offline' website at the exhibition. I will respect anyones wish to stay anonymous.

    Once again thank-you for helping me spread the idea of responsible ethical design, I think this is a very important issue that the next generation of graphic designers must be aware of.

    Cheers Julian

    Condensing_city_177_

    Boat Quay, Singapore

    Step aside from the bustling flow of tourists to the back lanes of Boat Quay and you will find something really phenomenal: a city of air-con condensing units. Narrow streets are filled with humming noise and hot air generated from those little boxes. These old shophouses were originally designed for residential or small business purposes, once converted into a restaurant or a bar, a good M&E engineer is needed in order to keep the building looking good from all angles.

    At its most important and fundamental level, Vitamin Green measures the collective and individual distortions of spirit that result from ubiquitous, invisible power structures and environmental stresses on the personal instinct and sensibility. By exposing the urban commuter to a symbolic representation of “nature”, a kind of reverse homeopathy is explored, wherein our social illnesses can be dug up and confronted

  • Bench2_001_177_

    I have never thought of "a chair+ a( duck-legged )chair+ a chair+ a chair+ a chair+ a chair ⇒ a bench". It's a design by Sschemata. This piece totally inspires me for my furniture recycling project, because a very simple concept actually turns into and eco-friendly design. I asked myself why can't we use recycled furniture and turn into some kind of outdoor furniture? Imagine all the green benches replace by these broken chairs. It is a good opportunity to reuse them and produce something useful by reusing them. Damaged parts can be replaced other broken part, it is easy build one if you are willing to spend some time on it / imagination.
