Refresh Everything – let’s vote

IsA Wonderful World is one of the finalists to receive a grand from Pepsi and change the communities in USA.

Our plan is to spend three months traveling all USA and make interventions in at least thirty different cities.

You can find some examples of the interventions we’ll make here.

Or watch this 1min video that describes our main proposal:

If you like the idea and want to help us bringing more joy and break the routine of big cities, please visit the Refresh Everything site and vote on our idea!

Under the fancy name of “Transfer Accelerator”, the dutch design firm called HIK Ontwerpers created this slide to help passengers at the Overvecht Railway Station to make their way faster, and also, much more enjoyable.

The Daily Clean

The more I research, the more I find people willing to help their community. This one is also in Brooklyn:

This guy takes one hour of his day just to clean some part of his neighborhood. He takes a picture before, after and selects an “artifact” that he finds interesting. He hopes to inspire other people to join the cause.

They make us better

After a big increase in the level of robberies at Bedford-Stuyvesant area, in Brooklyn, some local men decide to do something against it: They’re picking random days on the week to escort pedestrians from the subway station to their homes.

They don’t belong to any politic organization or anything similar. They just realized that there weren’t many men from 20-40 years old engaged in the community so they decided to do their part on making the area they habit safer to their women and children.

They also expect to form a mentoring program to youth soon.
