Project Description


We want to use public space

  1. To generate electricity.
  2. lower the heat in cities and urban spaces by greenifying using Biophylic design
  3. reduce carbon

Create NFT market coins for the community that supports it.

Data Story


We can leverage public spaces to generate clean energy solutions like solar panels, kinetic bikes, kinetic paving blocks, wind turbines. All these sources will generate clean energy which can be used to charge EVs, light up public spaces and power public utilities.

Also by hydrophonic framing, we can sequestrate Co2 emissions.

Over a period over 25 years we can save 6.1million ton CO2 using these practices.

Challenge Entries

Emissions: The Dark side of Buildings

How might we address the built environment which accounts for 40% of the world’s GHG emissions through data sets and smart technologies? How will the phenomenon of a hybrid “return to the workplace” impact how we use existing spaces and plans for developing new spaces? How do we create the right mix of brownfield and greenfield projects to optimise results of efforts?

Helping Australia reach net zero emissions by 2050

Australia has a goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. How can Australians use public spaces, including city landscapes to achieve these goals?

Eligibility: This question is open to all participants, excluding those currently working at CER, AER, DISR or ACCC.
