With our concept ripple, we engage individuals on a personal level and create a framework that encourages social interaction.
ripple is inspired by the so–called ripple-effect, and similarly, it starts as a small set of actions, initiated in Wuppertal, to eventually create an impact in different places around the world. Our project is about the people, their social connections and the scale of their impact. We focus on designers, users and neighbours. As designers, we create a framework which encourages the users to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle from the sphere of their homes. Through a platform for social interaction, people can inspire each other about their actions, and this influence spreads from neighbour to neighbour at an increasingly larger scale.
