A cool example of how to turn a problem into a solution – there is so much good stuff here to explore and appreciate
– 18-year old Boyan Slat spends a half a year studying plastic pollution and how to use the power of nature to clean itself up
– the young simply aren’t smart enough nor have sufficient experience to appreciate why certain things cannot be done or certain problems are beyond solving
– click through the website and enjoy the crisp, clarity of its design/functionality
– also notice how clear, crisp and understandable the problem and concept (solution) statements are
Then, consider how some of these concepts might be turned to advantage in viewing and languaging other “problems” in New Mexico that might benefit from this kind of thinking — water, education achievement gaps, fracking, homelessness, family poverty, family violence, fill-in-the-blank.
