Repaint the world for the common good

The answer is not technology. It is far simpler.

Peer sharing of cycles

Communities share products & services

An infrastructure that enables groups within communities to gravitate towards co-ownership and sharing of cycles, for moving people and goods.

Groups could include individuals and/ or small businesses, in staeful, opportunistic networks

The ultimate goal is a tricycle that is robust, long-lasting, repairable, aesthetic but not pretentious and, in its various avatars, can transport people and material.

With natural products such as wood,  yarn and bast, it is a unique combination that can transport adults and varying loads, including an entire household.

Technical applications that require manufactured materials, will be designed for minimal environmental impact.

Urban cable car transportation

The cable car design reduces infrastructure costs. It reduces the need for robust, impermeable road paving. It can transport up to 3.5 tonnes and can run 24/7, as and when needed, with configurable load trigger points.

Sciyent revamps accepted positions, sans the hype of fancy terminology.

Avant garde is simplcity.

The global population, its use of materials, its generation of wastes has grown so far above the sustainable capacity of the planet that there is nothing ahead [of the kind] that the sustainable utopia people are talking about.”…

Promising paths

An individual’s attitude may be amenable to change, but this change will not have a measurable effect on present-day systems. For a sea change to take effect, it will require community-led initiatives, permeating every aspect of our lives, from social behaviour to economic activity, from governance to democratic processes.
