“What if we could save money, radically reduce our environmental impact, and have a freer, less complicated life?” This may sound like a theory to many but Graham Hill, founder of TreeHugger.com, is making this a reality and not by himself.
Graham believes “we need to have less stuff and live in smaller spaces” which is why he is renovating a 420sf apartment in New York City with the support of Mutopo and Jovoto as an open challenge to design an ultra low footprint space.
We are equipping Graham with a Cisco umi telepresence system to put into his 420sf apartment so that he can connect with his friends/family without having to use a car or airplane to ease congestion and reduce emissions that can contribute to climate change, air pollution, and disease.
LifeEdited.org and Cisco are inviting YOU to propose, discuss and evaluate designs to encourage people to start thinking about considering living in a smaller space.
The community, along with the Life Edited jury, including Cisco’s very own Mike Kisch, Director of Consumer Marketing, will choose the winning designs.
LifeEdited.org is awarding up to $70,000 in cash, products and contracts for the best ideas including Cisco ūmi telepresence systems, Cisco valet routers, Flip cameras and a Cisco WebEx annual subscription. Other prizes include $10,000 in cash, a Strida folding bike, and more!
