Plastic bags are all around, in our research we discovered how many plastic bags everyone uses on a daily basis and their long-lasting and harmful effect on the environment.
It is an issue to be addressed because the debris of plastic bags ends up on our plate eventually and it is crucial to make everyone aware of the issue and trigger change.
That’s the spirit! It’s as good (and comprehensible) as that: simple pics and symbols in animated stories – that’s where the Sehsucht bunch feels like home. Almost everyone knows and uses BlueMotion Technoloy – ThinkBlue rises above the product level and integrates the right attitude. A good challenge with lots of sustainable fun…

The Story of Cap & Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the leading climate solution being discussed at Copenhagen and on Capitol Hill. Host Annie Leonard introduces the energy traders and Wall Street financiers at the heart of this scheme and reveals the "devils in the details" in current cap and trade proposals: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distraction from what’s really required to tackle the climate crisis. If you’ve heard about Cap & Trade, but aren’t sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the film is for you.
The concept of a future sustainable city is developed for a society that is currently not responding effectively to environmental dangers. "Transcendence" in this case referring to a point in time between our modern earth and the ultimate earth when artificial intelligence has reached or surpassed that of the human. The Transcendent city explores the concept of a technological singularity, where humans may have evolved to transcend our carbon based bodies forming a hybrid system with the artificial machine and in turn overcoming our biologically determined limitations.
The Transcendent City is an autonomous artificial machine that extends across the earth adapting to the natural eco-systems it encounters while deriving its energy from the renewable resources available at each particular site. The systems desire is to maintain homeostasis within itself whilst maintaining homeostasis within the greater system, Gaia. Its processes are engineered on the molecular scale by nano technologies controlled by molecular computers that monitor and analyse the environment.
The film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture questions whether the conception of artificial intelligence has been a necessity in human evolution and if we therefore should embrace emergent technologies to engage with problems of sustainability and the city.
