Do you paraglide to work?

Do you paraglide to work?

Nestled in the Swiss Alps, the geography and climate make it possible to paraglide all year long in Vercorin. Which is why the tiny village in Switzerland is known as a paraglider’s paradise. Some people even commute to work attached to their gliders. We take to the sky with local resident Marie Glassey and her dog/co-pilot Maya to see why this form of transportation and recreation is so popular. #Paraglide #Switzerland #Commute

Green Renaissance

We must teach our children to smell the earth, to taste the rain, to touch the wind, to see things grow. Our children have always decided the future. Let them choose one that aligns with our earth.  “Encourage your kids to look for nature everywhere you go. It’s the weed breaking through the pavement, It’s the leaves forming small clumps along the side of the road. It’s the sky at any given time of the day or night. It’s the wind doing what it likes to your hair. Look around, it won’t take long to find it.” ~Penny Whitehouse

We “Green Renaissance”, make these short films as passion projects, to share inspiration. You can help us make more films like this by making a tiny donation, so we can continue this journey with you –  @greenrenaissance

Who is Green Renaissance? We are a tiny collective of 4 passionate filmmakers (Warren, Jacky, Michael and Justine). We live off-grid and dedicate our time to making films that we hope will inspire and share ideas.

Wood, concrete, steel and light

Wood, concrete, steel and light

In coffee shops all over the world, the same set of design elements keep popping up. What is happening? This week, Quartz News looks at the global look that’s part Starbucks, part Silicon Valley, and very “Brooklyn.” If you’re in cities like Mumbai, São Paulo, Seoul, Paris, London, Kuala Lumpur, Lagos—anywhere, really—you might notice something: coffee shops are starting to look the same. Distinctive design elements—Edison bulbs, reclaimed wood, potted plants, exposed brick—are popping up in coffee shops everywhere. It isn’t just the design of these spaces that are becoming increasingly uniform. The expectation of enjoying beautiful, artfully-decorated, high-quality coffee has spread to places as far-flung as Auckland, New Zealand, and Atyrau, Kazakhstan. (To understand this, just follow #latteart on Instagram.) While it’s debatable where this look originated, it has come to be associated with one place: Brooklyn, New York.
