The future of mobility is 100% electric and smart... shared

BMWi the first car company to Accelerate the Global Goals with this all new BMWi3 in #SDGs Design. We are proud to demonstrate future mobility in this most sustainable production car in the world... by the most sustainable car company in the world, it can not get much better next step 100% Autonomous!
Utrecht is the fastest growing city in Europe and the most healthy city of The Netherlands. On top of that, Utrecht is one of the most happy cities in the world according to the United Nations. Utrecht is also the most inspiring #GlobalGoals City this new BMW i3 in #SDGs design for Utrecht for Global Goals will further accelerate the Sustainable Development in Utrecht! Everyone should try 100% electric mobility. Wouldn't it be fantastic f Utrecht would soon be the No.1 eMobility city in the world? Now number 2 behind Oslo!
  

The world is in motion and we’re in motion too. Motion means change and change is exciting. More and more people across the globe are calling their own values into question and thinking about how they could live more aware lives.At BMW i, this change in mindset has led to a new era in which, for the first time ever, vehicles are developed from the ground up with sustainable mobility in mind. In this context, the BMW i3 is more than a car. It is proof that responsibility and driving pleasure complement one another to perfection. It’s time to lead by example. And experience a new form of driving pleasure. Amen to this statement by BMWi a company designed with Sustainability on top of the to do list!

The finest form of pleasure is spontaneous pleasure – as spontaneous as the all-electric BMW eDrive system. As you move off in the BMW i3, just dipping the accelerator is enough to deploy full torque and pull away powerfully in near silence. And by the way: the same pedal also lets you brake, because the moment you lift off the accelerator, you feel the car start to brake. That’s because your BMW i3 is recovering the available kinetic energy and using it to charge the battery. This “one-pedal feeling”, as we call this innovation, not only enables you to experience driving like never before, but also extends your driving range.

Sustainability at BMW i is not simply just a word. It is our supreme guiding principle. This is why we have designed the entire life cycle of the BMW i3 in line with the principle of maximum conservation of resources and sustainability. With the BMW i3 it’s easy to make sustainability part of your everyday life. Zero emissions at the point of use means less air pollution in urban areas and more fresh air for you to breathe. When you fill up with green power or generate your own electricity with solar panels, you get to enjoy totally emission-free mobility. And driving in ECO PRO mode cuts your power consumption and increases your driving range. Added to which, in your BMW i3 you generate virtually no noise or odours, benefitting both yourself and your environment. Up to 95% of the BMW i3 is recycable.
Lets demonstrate the world at #COP23 in Bonn the Future of Mobility! 100% Electric as sustainable as possible...this car will put a smile on many faces of Petrol Heads...Most people who oppose electric driving have no idea how much more fun it is...in the right car! This BMWi 3 is a Mind Changer....Fast 0-100 in 7 seconds and with all the sustainable luxury anyone could demand....
Big thank you to BMWi Nederlandand Ekris BMW Utrecht for supporting the Global Goals!

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION.

At our production plant in Leipzig we have installed wind turbines to enable us to manufacture the BMW i3 with green power. On top of this, even compared to the low energy requirements for the production of other BMW models, we have managed to halve the amount of energy required to produce a BMW i3. The carbon fibres from which the BMW i3’s ultralight passenger cell is made are produced with energy generated entirely from renewables. The power comes from one of the world’s largest hydroelectric plants at Moses Lake, some 300 kilometres east of Seattle.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS.

Components made of 30 % kenaf. Using kenaf for larger interior surfaces allows us to substitute petroleum-based plastics and reduce the overall weight of the BMW i3, because kenaf fibres are up to 30 % lighter than conventional materials. Seats with 40 % pure new wool. One renewable material that offers a high level of comfort is certified pure new wool. In the Lodge interior design package, this accounts for 40 % of the material in the seat covers. Interior trim in eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is naturally resistant to moisture. That means it needs around 90 % less surface finishing than more traditional types of wood. 100 % olive-leaf-tanned leather. The leather in the BMW i3 is 100 % tanned with natural extracts of olive leaves. This has several advantages: olive leaves are otherwise just a by-product of olive farming, and this puts them to good use.

INTELLIGENT SUSTAINABILITY.

Sustainability at BMW i is not simply just a word. It is our supreme guiding principle. This is why we have designed the entire life cycle of the BMW i3 in line with the principle of maximum conservation of resources and sustainability. With the BMW i3 it’s easy to make sustainability part of your everyday life. Zero emissions at the point of use means less air pollution in urban areas and more fresh air for you to breathe. When you fill up with green power or generate your own electricity with solar panels, you get to enjoy totally emission-free mobility. And driving in ECO PRO mode cuts your power consumption and increases your driving range. Added to which, in your BMW i3 you generate virtually no noise or odours, benefitting both yourself and your environment. Up to 95% of the BMW i3 is recycable.

Utrecht Global Goals City als hart van sociale innovatie


Gisteren een heel erg inspirerende brainstorming gehad over de Global Goals de sustainable development goals en hoe Utrecht als Global Goals city de doelen nog veel leuker en makkelijker kan bereiken! Dennis Nolte de bedenker van de VIP Bus heeft een geweldige visie op de toekomst waar ik me 100% in kan vinden! De mensen echt centraal stellen en helpen hun dromen waar te maken! Ik heb Dennis leren kennen bij een CU2030 event in het Beatrixgebouw waar ze hun werk voor de Gemeente Utrecht via betaal met je verhaal in de VIP bus lieten zien... daar heb ik Dennis Nolte Stedebouwkundige Doesjka Majdandzic en de leukste beste kapper van Utrecht Raymond van der Vlist meegenomen naar de 6 verdieping van het Beatrixgebouw waar ik toen ik het Startupweekend Utrecht en de Global Goals / B Corporation opzet voor alle Startups aan het voorbereiden was in de hele Skybar! Er was direct een click met het trio en ook plannen om met de VIP bus samen het verschil te gaan maken in UTRECHT!

De VIPbus - een mobiel stadslab voor Utrecht

Een rijdende huiskamer, werkplaats, podium en experimenteerplek in ├ę├ęn. Dat is de VIPbus met haar bemanning. Een plek waar jij niet heen hoeft te gaan, maar die naar jouw buurt komt als troubleshooter, inspiratiebooster of veilige anders-dan-anders werkplek. Bevolkt door mensen met verstand van zaken, creatief, enthousiast en inspirerend en een groot Utrechts netwerk. Onafhankelijk van instanties en overheid. De VIPbus wordt een mobiel ‘stadslab’ voor de inwoners van Utrecht. Je kunt de bus uitnodigen in jouw buurt en hij komt langs als het nodig is.
De VIPbus tourt door Utrecht en sinds december 2009 in de provincie op zoek naar vernieuwende idee├źn en projecten op het gebied van cultuur, ondernemen, passie en talent. De VIPbus laat de Utrechter proeven aan een nieuwe kaders, nieuwe idee├źn en het als doel om mensen te inspireren en te ondersteunen van passie werk te maken. VIP verleidt mensen om over de persoonlijke horizon te kijken. De VIPbus ondersteunt pioniers in de dop met idee├źn die een verschil maken in sociale innovatie. En dat vanaf nu dus ook met de Global Goals als DOEL van de transitie die de Very Inspiring People in Utrecht mee gaan maken! Iedereen kan het verschil maken voor de duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelen!
In 2015 legden193 wereldleiders deze doelen vast. De Verenigde Naties roept iedereen op hieraan een bijdrage te leveren.
De Gemeente Utrecht, het team Utrecht4GlobalGoals bewoners en bedrijven organiseren samen activiteiten in de stad om deze doelen bekend te maken voor bewoners.
Wie mee wil denken en doen om Utrecht als Global Goals City nog beter op de kaart te zetten..we zijn al de meest inspirerende Gemeente van Nederland kan op www.utrecht4globalgoals.nl kijken en zich aansluiten!
Als verbinder en Katalysator help ik Stichting Technotrend om de Energy Challenges in de komende jaren naar alle scholen in Utrecht te brengen door coalities met bedrijven. http://energychallenges.nl/
Met http://www.teachsdgs.org/ ben ik internationaal achter de schermen bezig om Sustainable Development Education naar alle scholen van de wereld te brengen!
Worlds Largest Lesson heeft daar samen met Unicef en Microsoft Education een mooie cursus voor gemaakt https://education.microsoft.com/courses-and-resources/courses/SDG This short course is designed for educators and all those who would like to teach children and young people about the Sustainable Development Goals, commonly known as the Global Goals. It is intended to support the teaching of the World’s Largest Lesson and all other efforts to educate and engage children and young people so that they support the Sustainable Development Goals and want to turn their support into action.
Ik ben jaren geleden met One Person Can Make A Difference begonnen omdat ik weet dat iedereen HET VERSCHIL kan maken...Facebook is helaas niet meer wat het geweest is, wie ooit puur zonder te betalen een foto met 600.000 Likes heeft gehad en een weekly organic reach van 9 Miljoen...die heeft moeite met het feit dat Facebook pages alleen nog tegen betaling echte REACH kunnen krijgen! En dan ook nog eens weinig voor veel geld..Met Social Media heeft dat niets meer te maken! Deze video die ik op 5 december 2010 gepost heb WE ARE ALL ONE is al meer dan 200.000 keer geshared...totdat Facebook in September 2014 heeft geschreven je hebt nu recht op GRATIS marketing advies..om nog meer mensen te bereiken...einde van organic reach!Een Video met 218,794 shares stopt niet zomaar...10 Minuten die iedereen raken en die bijna iedereen deelt....

Tell President Obama: Don't drill the Arctic | CREDO Action

Tell President Obama: Don't drill the Arctic | CREDO Action



Tell President Obama: Don't drill the Arctic






Sign the petition

Statement lead-in:
“Allowing oil drilling in the Arctic is a catastrophic mistake. Don’t give Shell final approval to drill the Arctic.”



















You'll receive periodic updates on offers and activism opportunities.
Tell President Obama: Don't drill the Arctic
Dear Friend,



In 2010 President Obama oversaw the worst oil disaster in our
nation’s history. As an unstoppable torrent of oil poured into the Gulf
of Mexico for three straight months, he addressed the nation, urging, “we cannot consign our children to this future,” and “the time to embrace a clean energy future is now.”*



But today, rather than heed his own words, he seems more determined to break his own record.



The Obama administration last week issued Shell a conditional
approval to drill in the Arctic, one of the most dangerous and risky
places to drill for oil on earth. Shell still needs a final permit,
which it is almost certain to get – unless we can force the president to
change course.



Tell President Obama: Don’t drill the Arctic. Sign the
petition and we’ll deliver it to the president with the text of his
speech from the Gulf oil spill.




No one can safely drill in the Arctic. The Department of Interior has said there is a 75% chance of a spill greater than 1,000 barrels.1
The last time Shell tried drilling in 2012, its drilling rig ran
aground in rough Arctic waters. This year, one of its drilling rigs has
already failed a Coast Guard inspection.



At a time when global warming is already melting polar ice at an
alarming rate, allowing Shell to unleash the Arctic’s massive pool of
carbon on our atmosphere is literally crazy. As Bill McKibben wrote last
week in the New York Times, “It’s as if the tobacco companies were applying for permission to put cigarette machines in cancer wards.”2



Tell President Obama: Don’t drill the Arctic.



Of all people, President Obama should know better. But rather than
trying not to repeat the Gulf oil spill, the President is using it to
dismiss criticism of this terrible decision. “I think it's fair to say
that I know a little something about the risks of offshore drilling,
given what happened in the Gulf very early in my presidency,” he said
last week.



The decision doesn’t just show a short memory and terrible judgement. Allowing
arctic drilling underscores the dangerous and deeply flawed logic
behind President Obama’s "all of the above" energy policy
– that we can drill, frack and mine our way to a clean energy future.



That’s deeply concerning as we await President Obama’s decision on
Keystone XL and other infrastructure projects that would massively
increase the extraction of tar sands crude.



It’s been five years since President Obama called out that “we have failed to act with the sense of urgency that this challenge requires” because of “a lack of political courage and candor.” Yet he still is trying to have it both ways.



We know that President Obama does respond to public pressure. It has
staved off approval of Keystone XL. And now we need it more than ever to
save the Arctic.



Tell President Obama: Don’t drill the Arctic. Sign the
petition and we’ll deliver it to the president with his own words from
the Gulf oil catastrophe.




Excerpt from President Obama’s Gulf oil spill address:



“For decades, we have known the days of cheap and easily
accessible oil were numbered. For decades, we’ve talked and talked
about the need to end America’s century-long addiction to fossil fuels.
And for decades, we have failed to act with the sense of urgency that
this challenge requires. Time and again, the path forward has been
blocked -- not only by oil industry lobbyists, but also by a lack of
political courage and candor.




The consequences of our inaction are now in plain sight.
Countries like China are investing in clean energy jobs and industries
that should be right here in America. Each day, we send nearly $1
billion of our wealth to foreign countries for their oil. And today, as
we look to the Gulf, we see an entire way of life being threatened by a
menacing cloud of black crude.




We cannot consign our children to this future. The tragedy
unfolding on our coast is the most painful and powerful reminder yet
that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now. Now is the
moment for this generation to embark on a national mission to unleash
America’s innovation and seize control of our own destiny.”
