Locavore Map

Last semester I set up a project to research and design a Locavore map for Melbourne. I attach lo res images (2 sides) of the map.

(Shweta worked on the map – which came through really well)

I am now looking to get the map printed.

Poster Exhibition of Camapign Projects

I went and put up the posters of the Projects at the Sustainable Cities Forum. The forum itself was quite an eye opener – I saw 3 minute presentations of the projects like Green Roofs whic is all about greening roofs!

Then I had a long conversation with a VEIL person and Monique the CEO of Felxicar. Monique had a lot to say about the car design and the various approaches chosen – she mentioned Ryan’s and Lalit’s projectsnet. Not much about the share systems – for we are yet far from innovation in ther share systems.

It does look like we will be moving ahead with the three Locavore projects: The paper map, the facebook app and the website.

Food Fight – Trailer

More awesome stuff here

Food Fight opens with a bit of history about food production and America’s eating habits over the past half century. Beautifully shot and well written, we are treated to a series of interviews with food luminaries such as Alice Waters, Dan Barber, Wolfgang Puck and Michael Pollan, who frankly, hold exactly the same views about food, cooking and eating as I do. It’s no accident that I agree with them. These are the people who created the local, seasonal food movement as we know it today and who are at the forefront of trying to exact some change in the way Americans shop and eat.
