Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design Methodology



Course Date: Mar 20 - Apr 16, #2017
Duration: 4 weeks
Commitment: 2-3 hrs/week
Requirement: None

#Nature offers boundless inspiration for #sustainable #design, but how do we access the wealth of #biological information available and apply it effectively to design? This #online #course provides an introduction to the tools and principles of #biomimicry, a new discipline that emulates nature's best ideas and blueprints in order to solve human design challenges. Each week you’ll get outside to explore nature and learn a key biomimicry design concept that you’ll then apply to develop a novel #biomimetic design.

Why we don't publish at the Play Store



We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Sharing welcome!

Eco-island Orø






The small Danish island, Orø (Denmark is basically a realm of islands), is like many other small island communities in Denmark working against depopulation by transforming the traditional way of living into a sustainable energy experiment. Like the Islands Samsø, Fejø, Ærø, Fur, and the somewhat larger Bornholm - Orø wants to be ahead of the green transition that the parliament has agreed on.




I was just reading the plans. Completely fossil free, including a free electrical ferry and local energy plants, regenerative agriculture, recycling (no garbage will leave the Island), local district heating, new sewage including a sewage treatment plant in combination with fish farming (I wonder what the fish are gonna eat?) and much more.

When first the Danes put their mind to something, it will happen. Sustainable energy solutions are a growing export for Denmark, so it will be interesting to see which lessons will be learned from all this.

Solar Panel Farm Grows 17,000 Tons of Food Without Soil, Pesticides, Fossil Fuels or Groundwater


In order to grow crops, you need land, water and energy – all finite resources. But Sundrop Farms' technology sort of reinvents the resources.

In 2010, when the company launched its first pilot farm in Port Augusta, South Australia, it was located in the middle of a desert, where it would have been impossible to grow food using traditional agricultural methods. However, by combining seawater and sunlight, Sundrop Farms has managed to change the agricultural dynamic. It is a technology that negates any effects of climate change (real or imagined), land grabs by biotech companies who only want to spread GMOs, droughts, floods and other natural and man-made occurrences.
