What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?

We will develop an app prototype! We already have an app idea and want to bring it to the next level with you. So we will boil everything down, create a concept of the user experience and build a prototype.

App Ideas:

Functionality:

  • Take challenges and play against each other or in groups!
  • Do Challenges to lead a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle.
    Examples: (1) Take the train instead of flying. (2) Ditch single use plastic bags and join the trend of eco-bags. (3) Stop buying water and carry a reusable bottle in your bag. (4) Eat more beans, less burgers.
  • Challenges will be rewarded with a score.
  • Compete with others in a certain peer group (School, Work, Friends, Family, or even global?)
  • Group-challenges: Groups compete with other groups. (It’s like challenge-ception: Group Challenge made out of individual challenges.)

Core:

  • The challenges and scoring will be crowdsourced: Everyone can submit a challenge with a score. Everyone can then also rate the challenge so that the score will be an average. Rating a challenge might happen according to. (Difficulty, Sustainability Impact, Felt Impact)

Dashboard:

  • See the personal and collective global impact!

Time, Place & Supplies / Zeit, Ort und Ausstattung

“The Doughnut”: A safe and just space for humanity, by Kate Raworth, Senior Researcher at Oxfam Great Britain, presents a visual framework – shaped like a doughnut – which brings the concept of planetary boundaries together with the complementary concept of social boundaries, creating a safe and just space between the two, in which humanity can thrive.

The Living Planet Report provides possible solutions – including the fundamental changes required in the global food, energy and finance systems to meet the needs of current and future generations.

Hi @enryco & @Babaruna

this is very nice :slight_smile:

Here is some relevant content from the past years - other OSCEdays challenges that looked into Apps or games. Maybe some have useful information or are up for giving advice.

I recently spoke to Stefan Schridde of “Murks? Nein Danke?” project against planned obsolecence where they’re thinking about gamification and finishing up a “Murks-Melder”-App that encourages people to document examples of premature failure of things. So: great idea, looking forward to your documentation. Berlin is waiting for it.
