myfreshies community carbon credit social platform
The purpose of this project is to understand how a communitybased carbon credit could be implemented through the use of social capital. As such, it is a practical exploration into the relationship between classical economics and a humanitarian design approach.
The community based model addresses the existing carbon trading system on three fundamental levels. These levels include issues of measurement standards, proximity of credits generated and the human condition in relation to the carbon economic model.
The use of social capital is used as a potential to supplement a personal credit framework within a community context. The design consists of an online social platform and the physical implementation of the online data within an urban setting through an augmented reality application.
