Ethify Yourself and how to communicate Good Life

CC-by-sa ethify.org & rasos

We are invited to give a workshop at the degrowth conference in Leipzig (September 5th 2014, 11-13, Room S313). Transition initiatives worldwide are being faced with similar challenges: beyond the need for active participants they require common rule sets, various resources depending on their activity scope and vital communication channels for their crowd and stakeholders. A typical life cycle of a local initiative (such as community gardening) is enthusiasm, group-finding, resource allocation, common activities, rule setting, communication, building alliances and sustainification. Within this special session, we will be looking at the latter four.

Food is too precious to waste

We appreciate food. We appreciate the water, land, energy, money and human labor, that is utilized to produce food. Therefore, we made this short video to show the waste of food in a supermarket daily.

Exotische Früchte sind gesund und wohlschmeckend, durch ihre Transporte aber auch eine starke Belastung für das Klima.

In our time the competition in the business is very strong. There are many different companies and a wide variety of products to choose from. In order to secure a safe place in the market, companies use different paths and diverse sale strategies. The companies often manipulate buyers. The illumination system is often used to make the products more attractive and colorful. This is particularly common in more expensive shops. The main types of lighting used in boutiques are: general illumination, accent illumination and decorative illumination. This lighting can make a customer feel more content and allows the products to stand out and appear somewhat idealistic.

Blood Jeans

Why we wear not only jeans, but also the blood of thousands of people.

Jeans have to be hip, jeans have to be cheap and we cannot get enough of them. But what remains for the factory workers and the environment after buying Jeans for sometimes less than 10 Euros?

Ständig online und überall erreichbar zu sein ist ein Zwang bei vielen Jugendlichen.

The price of progress

By Claudia Schett

Where the natural resources for our mobile phones come from

The market for electronic goods boomed during the last decades with no end in sight. Especially the trade with mobile phones exploded. In order to produce those metals like copper, gold and silver are needed. But where do the more rare resources like coltan come from? Under which circumstances are they extracted? How has the situation changed?

Teeniepregnancy

CC-by-sa ethify.org & dilemma

Over 7000 new Teeniemothers are there in Germany every year.

Yesterday teddy bear in their arms, today they are mothers. Also nowadays in our well sexual-explained times teeniepregnancies are not rare. Since five years the booming tendency is stopped, but we can also not speak from a reduction.

A study about this topic from “pro familia” and the Institute of sexual research from the University Hamburg in Germany says, that nowadays more and more of the 15 to 20 years old girls become pregnant - that means currently round 3 percent of all girls less than 20 years in Germany. (Is the girl less than 20 years, we speak from a teeniepregnancy)
