Here is a first review of the contributions we received. Individual stories coming soon!

A screenshot presenting the total number of contributions

Up to February 12th, we had 81 contributions that accepted to share publicly the content and the name/contact information of the author. Most examples are about tools, methods and processes, followed by research. Events, materials and norms are the categories with less contributions.

A screenshot showing the wordclouds generated from the descriptions of the examples

The word-cloud on the left is extracted from the description of the examples. We see that the words that appear most are buildings (86 times), design (62 times) and project (55 times). Sustainability, community and nature are the values and principles that inspire the examples. Sustainability and nature are also part of the changes proposed by the examples, followed by social, energy, inclusion, awareness.

A screenshot presenting the distribution of contributions by country

The European countries that are contributing more examples are Spain, Germany and Italy. Most examples have a local scale ad could benefit from institutional visibility.

A screenshot with information on the lifespan of the examples and their benefit

The examples improve environment, design and planning and physical spaces and solutions. They are mostly long-term activities and are initiated by a balance of business, civil society and academia.
Only few are initiated by public authorities.

A screenshot of th distribution of examples in the key triads.

 Most examples benefit millions of people, could become mainstream in a relatively short period, and are the result of both individual and community action. In the triads, we see that almost no example is about aesthetics alone. They offer a mix of new ways to interact with the environment and alternative ways to relate to each other. They benefit society at several levels, and need a mix of new mindsets and better policies.
