Can we get people to stop littering their gum in cities by giving them a fun alternative? We propose installing a large color by numbers canvas on a city wall for people to dispose of their multicolored gum. It would give people a fun and constructive way to make their own mark in being a part of cleaning up our habitat. We aren’t trying to convince you that cleaning our sidewalks alone will save the earth, but we are saying that it can be a catalyst, and most important of all, fun!

Purpose: To get people to use far away parking spots and get more exercise.
Idea: Posts signs that are solar digital at the farther parking spots. When a person parks there, they receive a "fortune" for the day. Kind of like a fortune cookie. Fun and easy!

Turning something icky into something pretty. The Gum Collector is a fun way to dispose of chewed gum without making a mess. It is a user friendly device that will keep out footphaths clean and no more sticky surprises under your seat. Gum Collectors could be placed in schools, at bus stops, on the street, train stations and pretty much anywhere. Inskickad av Yvette Messina.
So many gloomy faces can be seen nowadays on bus, tram, we can meet angry car drivers and rushing masses on the streets. One smile can break this negative wave. Smiling is good to our body and soul, and it also generates a chain reaction: if you smile to someone, he will instinctively smile back. The theory is that a chocolate automat is working with smile. The core of the automat is a face recognizing software that decides if someone smiles or not. Also with this program only one chocolate per person could be given. Inskickat av Edit Tangl.
Dog's feces in the streets stink. Literally. And still, some dog owners don't throw at the trash can. So, let's give them a reason to do it. Let's show them that it could be useful if put at the right place.
The Garden's hit is where they'll see what some poo can do. Throwing it at the specified place activates a mechanism that releases a plastic rose everytime something hits the engines under the garden. Then, a flower "grows". There are 50 of them, that go down again after some minuts. This way everybody can enjoy making a plant growing. Just have to make the poo hit the garden.

A dashboard game that’s inspirer people to drive cars more CO2-friendly.
There are a few easy things you can do when you drive your car to help reduce the amount of fuel you burn and so cut down on CO2 emissions.
The secret is to help reduce the amount of work your engine has to do, because the greater the workload, the more fuel is burned – so the higher is the CO2 emissions.
Nobody likes speed limits, but if we make it fun, drivers will try to do not overcome the limit. HOW?
There are radars on the street showing you actual speed you are driving. Your speed will be memorized and compared with other speeds memorized before you. All this information will be ranked from the one most closest to speed limit down to slowest one. If you overcome the limit you are disqualified. But if your speed is closest to the max. allowed speed your ranking will be displayed on the screen over the street.
speed limit 50km/h
there are cars before you driving the speed:
The Pitfall Crosswalk is inspired by classic Atari game Pitfall. The idea is to make it fun for people to cross the street in the right places. In cities such as mine, Rio de Janeiro, people have made dangerous crossing a habit. My wish is to influence people for their own good. Inskickad av Rafael Medeiros
Whenever drivers try to park the car within the borders , a jackpot sound is heard as in a slot machine. A graphic of the slot machine is placed. So people try to park it correctly. With this the parking behavior is changed for better. Inskickad av Manoj Manduva
An interesting bike concept that offers a great doze of exercise as well as a funny experience through which you can measure your energetic potential.
The concept is simple: the electricity produced while pedaling is collected and can feed up various electric devices. The scientific application has been around for quite a while now but how many times was it transposed into an application that would also generate fun?
People are not recycling their cans and bottles.
I think a fun way to recycle would change everybodys attitude by making a hockey recycling net. Its basically a hockey net loacated at a Recycle Depot. You have to shoot your cans and bottles in the net and you get points. Its fun and your helping the evironment!

My proposal for the problem of abandoned and broken glass in public places of meeting is inspired to Bruno Munari's projected painting and at the same time to a popular game of our childhood: the kaleidoscope. So, throwing the glass bottles in a special container made of a "glass crusher" and of a suitable projector, we can create several compositions subsequently. A downright "open work" in continuous transformation thanks especially to the people - often young people - that won't be anymore "only" responsible citizens not polluting, but also active part and creators of pictorial works.
A problem to be solved in Argentina and probably in other countries, is that people who finish a bus, train, a highway or metro trip throw away their tickets on the station or on the street. Most of the tickets are made in paper
Can we get more people to throw tickets into a special machine, rather than on the ground, by making it fun to do ??
I think we can. And we solve two problems at once.
We can install special machines inside the main stations ( see graph ) where people must
1 ) Insert their ticket in the right slot ( e.g. subway ticket in subway slot ).
En nyttig idé om hur hundbajs kommer till nytta! Bygg pantabajs-automater där bajset vägs och en summa pengar motsvarande bajsets vikt går direkt till välgörande ändamål såsom hundräddningscenter i sverige, ju mer hunden bajsar desto mer pengar blir det!

The notion behind this design is to make revolving doors fun to use, as they are far more environmentally friendly than the widely used automatic sliding doors. Revolving doors are not just environmentally friendly because they can be powered manually as opposed to automatically; they also offer excellent protection against draughts and heat loss due to the nature of their design. In this design, the central core of the revolving door is attached to the drive shaft of a traditional music box. The music box is mechanical and therefore requires no external electricity to power it.
We want to show people how with a little action they can contribute to a bigger one, and a better world with it. We are using a teddy bear who lost its owner. With a walkie talkie inside the little bear we ask people for a little trip. Six families helped the bear Morrison to get from one side to another of the Retiro park in Madrid, they just needed to walk for some meters, but together it was a considerable distance.

Can we get more people to replace bottled water for drinking fountains by making it fun to do?
BIG PROBLEM: Plastic bottles can take up to 1000 years to biodegradate and currently only 10% of almost 40'000'000 bottles consumed a day worlwide is properly recycled. Bottled water consumed in America in one year requires over 1'500'000 barrels of oil, enough to power up 250,000 homes in the same year.

As recycling initiatives are increasing in number and people are becoming
more aware and receptive to these ideas, I'm suggesting a bottle recycling
Camouflaged as a casino slot machines, the recycling process works as follows:
- every bottle works as a coin, each inserted bottle gets recycled
- for every bottle inserted you have the right for a spin
- the more bottles you insert, the more you recycle and the more winning chances you got
It's a win win situation. You get most of fun out of it and Planet Earth wins a better life,
with a more responsible society.
