Go-Sharing is a service where you can just grab electric bikes/scooters/cars and use them for transportation. Without the burden of owning it. This reduces waste and uses less parking space. And of course, by using electric vehicles, you will contribute less to global warming. If of course the power is generated with renewable power. Which is the case here
The picture above is by the way shot with a Fairphone 4, a sustainably build phone by utilizing a modular design, not sourcing the materials from conflict zones, paying the works a fair wage, recycling as much as possible and supporting the phone for at least 5 years in terms of software, spare parts and warranty.
Almost every station in #nl has bikes for rent. It’s just 3 euro per day and you can have one for 72 hours. Discounts are available with subscriptions. It’s an ideal way to combine it with train travel. Using fast public transportation that runs on renewable power and then continue by bike.
They never should’ve left, free drinking water fountains. They can be found around the country. The Fairphone app has a map with all the local fountains (and recycling centers) nearby. Food, water, transportation, education, healthcare and housing are basic needs. We still need to go a long way. The question remains, do we have the resources to make these needs freely available? Or at least make strategical decisions with automation and resource management to make the prices go down.
This forest is called a food forest, anyone may get fruits, nuts, seeds, spices, etc., but only as much as they need and make sure the forest remains well maintained. It’s a community effort to offer local fresh food for free.
This local farmer uses a GPS guiding system, mounted on top of the cabine, which helps to steer the tractor. This makes plowing more efficient by riding in straight lines, but also is able to automatically steer the tractor across the field. It’s not full #automation, but it’s a good example of technology extending human productivity. Which is exactly the goal behind technology; do more with less.
