EnviroKIT was part of Industry Project at Pilot Year, CIID. The brief was to design a platform for action where Danish citizens can create a cooperative partnership with DSB (leading train service in Denmark) and provide a new sense of ownership to transport solutions. This would fundamentally change DSB’s role from a provider of transport to a group of passengers, into a relationship where DSB and travelers are equal partners providing transport services together. DSB can act as the initiator of such a platform, both from a value perspective and from an infrastructural perspective. DSB sees this as a long-term opportunity, and not as a short-term business.
The brief required a vision beyond DSB’s established core business, such as rail networks, trains and stations, and address people’s journeys from door-to-door. How can we help each other fulfill needs for transportation in partnership with DSB? Examples of this could be ride sharing, car-pooling, walking clubs, bike clubs or even removing the need to travel in certain situations.
EnviroKit is a service which provides schools with a platform and set of tools that enable teachers to implement new participatory methods of educating children about sustainable living habits.
The tools are designed to allow the children to learn intuitively through observing, and allowing them to make their own decisions. As well as the toolkit that is supplied to the schools, the service also has another main touch point. The enviroKit website provides an informative portal for teachers to learn how to adapt their existing tools to teach children about new areas of social responsibility and wellbeing. As well as providing for the teacher and children, the website also provides a platform for the parents to see what their children have been observing and provides tools such as “Co2 friendly travel route planner” to encourage parents to make more ecologically-friendly choices.
Our aim is not to change the world in one big step, but about collaboration and inspiring people to make small changes everyday.
- Educational institutions have to be motivated to use this platform within their curriculum.
- Children must feel engaged to participate
- The toolkit has to provide a platform and be flexible enough for teaching all areas of sustainability
