            By this short film, we would like to introduce you Buckminster Fuller, an engineer, inventor and great visionary. At the early 60s, far before the invention of the personal computer and the internet, he has proposed a system for worldwide collaboration, with a comparable goal to our initiative Architecture In Development. His vision was named the ‘World Peace Game’. He used this name to make clear that he wanted it to be accessable for everyone on the earth. Film: Quinten Swagerman & Rudin Swagerman Voice over: Joshua Rubin This project is made possible by the NCDO (National Committee for International Cooperation and Sustainable Development) and the SfA (The Netherlands Architecture fund).

              Urban Earth Leaders is a youth leadership development program connecting the creative power of 30 young artists and 300 young people in poor urban communities with the urgency of the global environmental crisis. It educates young urban artists on issues related to social justice and ecological sustainability and lets them exchange their stories and insights across national and cultural frontiers in order to make them more aware and capable citizens. It also professionalises their art and their capacity as cultural entrepreneurs. Their message and their strengthened position as community leaders will inspire other youth to adopt more sustainable lifestyles through individual awareness and collective action. Creating their own artistic projects during a simultaneous process in 3 different countries, the artists share their capcity, knowledge and experience along the way through off-line and on-line communication and work towards and international exchange for the multiplication of their arts and knowledge and presentations at cultural festivals in 2 cities.

                from John Matthews Added 347 1 0

                The conservation community has not fully accounted for the implications of climate change to our work, which has become integrated with economic development in recent decades. Many of the largest impacts on ecosystems and species come from infrastructure investments, especially water infrastructure. Given the sensitivity of the water cycle to climate change, there is a high risk of long-lived water infrastructure developing such severe mismatches with its ambient climate that the investment both impoverishes developing countries and accelerates ecosystem declines. We suggest some mechanisms to reduce these impacts.

                  from Francis Bièvre Added

                  I wrote and realized this video for a french engineering company who promotes sustainable development. This is my first professional realisation so far. The idea was to present people who struggle against status quo as explorers, because, even today, you have to face several - and actually too much - barriers when you want to promote green business.
