We present to you: The Poop Converter!
This revolutionary invention will banish all problems concerning the disadvantage of our cherished companions.
This great-brown-grumpy will change into fertilizer to bloom flowers, sprout seeds, send us our necessary vegetables and reforest our beloved planet...
Totally Cradle to Cradle, we up-cycle poop to essential minerals.
But above all... be honest .. wouldn't it be great fun to leave your doggie bag, and to get it back transformed into fertilizer granules..

Since cigarette butts are a big problem today, as it represent more than half of the litter thrown in the streets , I propose to make a “cigarette cemetery”. This means that there will be small bins that can be attached to the street lamps, garbage bins, traffic lights or panels from the bus stops. After you smoke a cigarette (you kill the cigarette) it would be nice to burry it in the “gravebin”. So when you throw the cigarette butt it should be played a part from the funeral song, or a voice could say “may it rest in peace”, “it was a good cig” and other things like this.
Stockholm is your playground! In the streets, a giant network of red lines and nodes is painted. At each node, there is a question or a statement that encourages pedestrians to answer the question by choosing one of two or more red lines that represent different answers. This will encourage people to walk more because it's fun to see where the red lines lead and what questions come next! And the sidewalks won't look so boring either.
A more fun way to recycle your newspaper!
Many people around the world appreciate to read free newspapers when they travel with the subway. The problem is that too many people don’t recycle their newspaper when they’ve read it. This is damaging the environment and costs lots of money to clean – Money that raises ticket prices.
Can we get people to change their behaviour by making it more fun to recycle their newspapers?

This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

Treadmills and exercise bikes at the gym are a great way for people to work out regardless of the conditions outside. The problem is that they're boring and monotonous, and there's no incentive to push yourself (unlike running outside, when there's always someone to try to catch up to). The solution: Treadmill Racing. Network a series of treadmills and exercise bikes so that each one knows how
Many of us throws in the trash or in public places the free daily newspapers. We can change this with a funny recycling attitude. With Newspaper Style you are not just rewarded with a good conscience, you also can express your opinions of the news with a big smile. Submitted by Sandra Reyes.
I bolted an ordinary coat rack on busy city street corner in a mid-sized midwestern town. When the weather turned cold i began to randomly hang warm gloves and hats on the rack. These items would be gone by the next day. The coat rack entitled "Hang Your Hat" began to collect usable items from other generous passers by. Yet each item hung on the rack was gone the next day. The idea of putting a piece of furniture on the street brings light to the fact that there are people that live on the streets and are homeless.

How can we get children to wash their hands after using the toilet? We involve them into a quiz: When they push the soap dispenser they hear the question "Who is it?" Then, when they turn on the water for washing their hands they will here the typically sound of an animal. (The animal sound changes each time, so that they do not automatically know the answer) After washing the hands for 30 seconds they will get the answer (the name of the animal). If they wash their hands too short they do not get the answer.
This is for the checkouts in large (or medium, even small and mini) supermarkets. The dividers on the transport belt are put in a gully by the cassier. This is at the end of the transport belt, But the dividers tradionaly are needed at the beginning. By giving the diveders a sound of people enjoying a ride (little child on bicycle, people in rollercoaster) people will be stimulated to slide the divider to the beginning of the transport belt.
Idea: Hopscotch Lotto. Why not design a special interactive Hopscotch that would encourage adults to exercise and sometimes to win prizes? For example, players would hop from one square to another (similar to numeric keypad principle) in order to create a winning sequence of digits. Here’s how it would work: let’s say the secret winning number consists of 16 digits, i.e. 4698001738372349. That means that each player should make 16 random jumps and if the sequence of numbers matches the winning number 4698001738372349, the player gets a reward. Locations: shopping malls, playgrounds, etc.
The idea is pretty simple: Taking some bins and dressing them up in silly (green?) monster costumes and placing them around the city (parks?). When people get close to one, the monster's mouth opens to allow people to 'feed' it (throw garbage in). It works with a motion sensor that triggers an engine to open the monster's mouth. It could also play some sounds to get attention. You can even park your VW next to it and the monster will keep the villains away. Ninjas too. Submitted by Levi.
In 2008 we came up with this idea at Miami Ad School Europe. It won awards at Clio and Young Guns but no mater how hard we tried to make it alive, no recycling company were interested. Perhaps they thought it ain't funny.

I Transformed an existing climbing frame web into a big Nomad Tent.
Seventeen Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi youngsters stopped playing football and came to sit in it.
People brought candles and some beer. We had nice chats about the problems in their neighbourhood. At midnight they helped me taking it down.
This way i want to reach a spontaneous moment!
- 'My dad has a restaurant, i'll get you a pizza!'
- Boy on phone: 'Come over here, relaxed sitting in a tent!'
- 'When are you coming again?'

It's simple, you add a windmill to the top of the car. Which is connected to the motor and to the battery. All you have to do is is start up the car like normal with fuel, then once you get going, the windmill spins and provides energy for the motor. The battery of the car can charge up and last the car for 10-20 minutes without the windmill spinning, so you can keep power at stoplights etc. The windmill car isn't about not using fuel for cars. It's about using less fuel (only for start-up and back-up energy).

I'm waiting in line and getting bored with nothing to do and I don't dare to small talk to the people around me. The line is very long at the postoffice/ bank/ waitingroom/ hospital/ busstop ... and the clock is ticking very slowly. Waiting on my turn seems to take forever.
I - and all the people around me - like to take pictures with their cellphones on holidays, special occasions or just for no special reason. We can upload these to a local network connected to a video-projector that is showing the pictures very big on the wall.
The use of the bicycle as a daily transport system is not a new idea. Everybody knows the health and environmental benefits of riding a bicycle. But several constrains, such as weather uncertainty, urban street morphology, traffic hazards, and even laziness, all have a significant impact in the – limited – use of the bicycle in urban areas.
As there are bike stations in the street to encourage people to ride and help this way to
take care of their health and the planet, it will be “clown shoes stations”, where people
can come and put big clown shoes on their own shoes.
This simple action would make some positive change on the mood of their day.
