Climate changes on an individual level

Explorations with a bottom-up approach

Environmental change is a concern for all of us, and in order to better influence the larger, high-pollutant systems in the world we need to start with the smallest entity, the individual. This notion of a «bottom-up» approach was the starting point for my diploma project.

I found that in Norway, as few as 10% of light bulbs, and 30% of consumer batteries are properly disposed of. Potentially containing hazardous materials, these everyday works of magic need some attention in order to increase return rates.
Considering their fairly low replacement rate as well as minimal amount of direct interaction, most people have an abstract relationship to these products. My project explores ways to change that, and at the same time attempts to encourage people to recycle rather than throw these objects away.
