CLEAN ENERGIES: EFFICIENT TOOLS FOR SOCIAL COHESION SOLAR COLLECTORS IN VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES

Governamental

The project aims at providing hot and clean water to a community sports centre and to 5 houses by installing solar collectors for water heating. This service will be extended to other houses and community facilities, thus providing continuity to a multisectoral-approach strategy where the State, the private sector and society commingle to generate sustainable development in the most disadvantageous areas in the city of Buenos Aires. New technologies will be implemented to promote energy saving and environmental awareness.

2011 Environmental Initiative Awards

Sponsored by The Minnesota Environmental Initiative

Since 1994, The Environmental Initiative Awards has celebrated innovative projects that harness the power of partnership to produce tangible, positive environmental outcomes in Minnesota. In 2011, fifteen finalists were honored, five winners announced, and one winner selected by popular vote for the Partnership of the Year award.

This was the first year InCommons was used by The Minnesota Environmental Initiative (MEI) to collect nominations. Michael Harley, Executive Director of MEI describes the partnership:

ENERGÍAS LIMPIAS COMO UNA HERRAMIENTA EFICAZ PARA LA COHESIÓN SOCIAL: COLECTORES SOLARES EN COMUNIDADES VULNERABLES.

Governamental

El proyecto consiste en brindar agua caliente y sanitaria a un centro comunitario (Polideportivo) y a 5 viviendas mediante la instalación de colectores solares para el calentamiento del agua. Esta acción será extendida a nuevas viviendas y edificios comunitarios dando continuidad a una estrategia de enfoque multisectorial, donde Estado, Sector Privado y Sociedad Civil se coordinan para generar desarrollo sustentable en las zonas más desfavorecidas de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, implementando nuevas tecnologías para el ahorro y concienciación en el uso de recursos energéticos

A Village Green, Healthy Affordable Homes

Sustainable housing surrounding our community garden can develop an asset that improves our quality of life.

The Village Green Homes project leverages the investments of community residents and non-profit organizations in establishing a community garden in our Larimer neighborhood. Neighbors, community organizations and local government have worked over the past two years to develop a plan to revitalize Larimer as green neighbourhood.

Glass Bottles, Earthen Plaster and Bamboo: An Innovative way to Build and Heal

Sem fins lucrativos / ONG/ Setor Civil

A building method that uses glass bottles, earthen plaster and bamboo to construct small homes in Kathmandu, Nepal. A proven technique (photographs included) this labor-intensive, financially inexpensive urban development initiative creates jobs, gives intrinsic value to glass bottles and shredded paper in a part of the world where these are usually littered about, and provides structurally sound homes to those at the bottom of the pyramid. Additionally, the project harnesses the potential of those suffering (lepers, homeless, jobless), and includes them in them in the building process.

Bamboo Geodesic Dome (A first and third world solution)

The frame materials are just Bamboo and string/rope which can also be made from any fibrous local plant material. This idea was the brain child of the geodesic master himself: R Buckminster Fuller and was published in ‘Domebook 2’ by Pacific Domes a non profit educational corporation in 1971. My idea is to show how this great use of free renewable, biodegradable materials can be extended upon to make zero material cost, zero carbon footprint housing for anyone needing quick and easy adequate shelter.

Can Architectural Art Model & Inspire Urban Ecotopian Design?

We may not be able to redesign a city with $10,000, but we can inspire people to work towards and believe in the possibility, beauty, & need of doing so.
We propose creating habitable models that inspire and educate about innovative sustainable possibilities. Our models are not new homes, but works of art. We will create an ecotopian architectural ‘installation’ that will exhibit different facets of green living within an art piece that dares to push visitors to recognize that change is possible.
