Wer sind wir / Who are we
The Pukika Experiment is a project to build from scratch a self-sufficient city for 3 million people. Self-sufficiency means you need to produce EVERYTHING from your own ecosystem. Building it from scratch means you can actually think outside the box and really make an impact on our consumerist lifestyle. In this sense, Pukika would run entirely on circular of sharing economy. It also has a monetary system that curbs inequality and makes sure that we protect the ecosystem.

Kurzbeschreibung / Short Description
The challenge for the OSCE Days is to develop a board game that would allow people to understand how resources are used in a city operating under circular economy principles. The game deals mainly with agriculture, manufacturing, mobility, services and real estate, but it underpins all other areas of modern cities, such as energy, education, sports and infrastructure.
I would like to make a presentation explaining why self-sufficient cities might hold the key to a truly sustainable future—as opposed to sustainable or green cities, which are just outsourcing pollution to poor countries—and how circular and sharing economy are the paradigms that enable that level of efficiency. The presentation runs for 30-40 minutes followed by Q&A. Additionally, I could have several shorter presentations that focus on one aspect of self-sufficiency and that are linked to the outcome of the challenge.
In order to further Pukika, I’ve recently began working on a project called “Inception,” a virtual reality game/platform where users build and manage a self-sufficient city. The outcome of the challenge at the OSCE Days would be very helpful in identifying the key relationships in a full circular economy.
