Marine litters on shoreline: citizen science on monitoring beach

Plastics pose a considerable threat to the livelihood of the aquatic species and ecosystems as they can transport bio-accumulative harmful pollutants over long time intervals. Toxic smaller sized ocean plastics can be easily mistaken for food and hence can be transferred across aquatic vertebrates and invertebrates. As for the larger sized pieces like ghost nets, these have been found to be responsible for large amounts... more »

How to find current info about Lesvos and its population.

My two colleagues and I, students at TU Delft, are working on an analysis of Lesbos Island and more precisely the refugee crisis that overwhelms locals, disturbs the island economy and put asylum seekers in inhumane conditions. From where we stand the situation seams not to benefit to anyone. The aim of the course we are following is to pick a location that face environmental, economical or social problems, to analyse... more »

Working From Home - A Dream for Some, A Nightmare for Others

While some of us dream of being able to work from home in our pajamas, away from the prying eyes of our bosses, and the endlessly distracting office gossip; there are people out there that find working from home to be dreadful & difficult to do. I have a few friends that while their work is all done remotely, they always get dressed and head out to a new location to work from because home is either too distracting, or... more »

How Might We Sponsor an Olive Farm

Lesvos has over eleven million olive trees. Olive groves and family-owned farms symbolize much about the island: its connection to land and community. Plus, Lesvos olive oil is delicious and should a delicacy throughout the world.

Sponsoring a family farm could be a gift or a life-long commitment allowing people to get to understand the island, and feel part of what's happening there (including its environmental and... more »

How To Be The Idea Guy / How To Be The Idea Gal

How can we create a two-sided Book?

I was thinking about a two-side book: one is How to be The Idea Guy, and turning it over reveals the other, How to be The Idea Gal.

 

Two equal covers would help demonstrate the equality in the authors and messages. They are equally important.

 

Both covers could be promoted, like the old TV Guides, but the single book would be purchased ensuring that both messages are received.

How Might We Co-Create with Cruise Lines

Cruise lines sell different types of adventures to different types of people. Some people like one things, others another. What if we collaborated with cruise lines to develop unique travel adventures and excursions that compliment or align with the issues we face on Lesvos?

For instance, there are many people who are environmentally conscious and committed to help protect the ocean. Can we create an excursion for people... more »

How to expand tourism options by leveraging our Blue Hope Spot?

We should explore how co-creating the Avlaki Hope Spot with global stakeholders can yield new tourism to the North Aegean Region and migrate to other spots in the Med to fast track transition to sustainability.

 

Eg. Diving, snorkelling, kitesurfing, scuba, artisanal fishing, conservation of critically endangered marine species, open water swimming events, coral restoration, educational programmes

Commission Army - Navy vessels for Immigrants & Refugees

What about commissioning vacant and unused Army/ Navy vessels, or even vacant properties across the globe to accommodate people until proper resettlement solutions are found in view of international obligations, while we allow the islanders to get back to rebuilding their livelihoods so we can help those who can't?
Who is brave and 'mature' enough to put a stop to the absurdity of building more detention processing centres,... more »

How Could We Make Great Explainer Videos?

I have found that people like to watch brief explainers videos (2-3 minutes) that help them get up t speed quickly on a topic.

I have been prototyping videos around design thinking in this shorter format: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2BcAWKNMlRw5Kw3p2_PO35v3IvrD-V7V

What's Your Problem?

How do I find higher-quality clients?

I do video work. Most of my clients have been gained via word-of-mouth. While the experiences are positive, they are low-paying and I am doing all of the work. I want to get higher-paying clients that pay to cover a full film crew and allows me to purchase new equipment as needed. I just don't know where to go about finding them.
