Team SOMA MINERS developed a quiz-like application “Green Game”. The game includes statistical questions about sustainability related subjects, such as the percent energy used in residential and public places or the distribution of water usage to the sectors. This aims to illustrate the potential contributions of collective efforts in reducing the unnecessary consumption and having more “green” approach. The user is challenged to answer these questions through a visual interface. After completing the quiz, the application displays the actual answers and assigns a score out of 100 based on the accuracy of the answers. Thus, the awareness is addressed in a joyful way. Report.

Team GREEN developed Yenergy concept for a map that shows efficiency rate of each building for anyone. People would use the map when buying an apartment, searching for job, or in tourism. It would be a combination of Google maps, eat.fi, Booking.com, with a possible target group coming from, for instance, Airbnb. Besides coloring the buildings according to the rating, this map gives more information when a user hovers with the mouse over it, and on click it also opens pop up with additional detailed information: air quality (in this case, using 720 data), lights, year of construction, CO2 storage etc. ReportSlidesGitHub.
