Seasonal Green Recommender

Screen Shot 2014-08-24 at 17.25.39

This is a prototype of a web application which tackles the problem of lack of green awareness by recommending recipes based on seasonality, and addressing the gap in producer to consumer communication.

Urban Fruit Initiative

photo 1

The Urban Fruit Initiative is a cooperative social enterprise connecting fruit tree owners with too much fruit with those who want to help pick and share in the bounty. Fruit is redistributed amongst those involved with the bulk of it being donated to sustainably produce a locally-sourced apple juice with great taste.

The hack involves a web application to facilitate the coordination of information needed for registration of users (fruit tree owners and volunteer pickers), scheduling of apple collections and brokering (matching and verifying) amongst users to arrange harvesting.

Last minute food

A prototype application that proposes gathering information from COOP supermarkets about the food that is about to expire and allow the users to explore recipes based on those ingredients and to facilitate the purchase.

Carbon Emissions in Minecraft

A mod for Minecraft that adds carbon emissions using AMEEconnect to get real scientific data from the IPCC. When you burn some wood in a furnace, the mod calls out to AMEEconnect to do a calculation, and adds the result to a tracker in-game. As the carbon ticks up, the environment gets more and more polluted as the skies go dark and the clouds come down.

Remember Carbon

The hack is a browser extension that analyzes a travel agency website (flygstolen.se) and inserts CO2 emission data on the page about each flight. It also links to a page that compares these emissions to CO2 produced by other actions (like buying beer).

Choosing holiday flight destinations are some of the most influential choices people make. A flight from Sweden to Asia can add over 30 % to his yearly CO2-emissions. That’s why relevant information should be shown when people are making that choice.

Green Travel

GreenTravel is a iphone application which helps the user commute with public transport and at the same time show how much CO2 different choices of trips will emit. The application will always rank the proposition of taking a car highest for use as a reference point. The ambition is to release it on App store

How do I look in this sweater?

Currently, most applications that supplies users with different sustainability data require the person to actively make the choice to find out more of the environmental impact. This project focuses on the shopping situation, and in particular shopping for clothes, making this information available in a non-invasive way when just going through your usual routine when shopping for clothes.

The project used Kinect hardware to detect and track hand and torso movements, when twirling in front of the mirror or holding up a jacket out in the store, and shows the related data to this garment. By the movement done naturally in this situation these motions will trigger, display and flick through different information related to the garment, for example wherefrom the material have been sourced, how it was produced or which path around the earth it has taken to land in this store. We believe that such an installation may arise and help create awareness in an non-intrusive way.

Readmill CO2

A timeline for Readmill.com, basically visualizing your year of reading in a single long scrolling page. Your highlights and closing remarks pass by as you scroll through your reading history and in the end you get a summary. The summary shows the total time read and also some other metrics including how much energy you saved by reading ebooks instead of paper books.

During the hack the Agro-Know team developed a module for OMEKA platform that allows the ingestion of environmental learning resources to the OMEKA repository and use of these resources in the generation of online educational pathways. To this end the team used the Solr-based search API of the Organic.Edunet SCAM system provided by MetaSolutions that allow search of resources in Organic.Edunet learning federation.

The demonstrated use case was a) to search for environmental learning resources in Organic.Edunet federation suitable for the development of educational pathways on the topic of sustainability & resource conservation, b) to annotate the ingested learning resources using the Natural Europe metadata Application Profile (AP) andc) to add these resources as supporting material in an environmental educational pathway.
