GoodtoChina is a social enterprise that designs solutions for social innovation and sustainability that encourage a paradigm shift from non-sustainable behavior towards sustainable and healthy behavior. We tackle urban challenges by creating opportunities for change through the development of contemporary systems and environments and by providing tools and education to influence a change in people behavior: as a consequence of these interventions we help to propel new opportunities for social and environmental reform and economic revenue through changes in demand and supply to traditional systems.
Each strategy and design solution addresses the 3 pillars of sustainability, namely, social, environmental and economic.
Our umbrella goal is to create environments whereby people, business and environment are healthier and happier.
The impact from the systems we propose can be measured across both tangible and non-tangible elements that include: happiness, pollution, energy usage, renewable energy, food sources, renewable materials & construction.
We do this through a variety of products and services:
Sky Farms is one of our products and services
Sky farms: An innovative platform of experiential urban farming which encourages sustainable and healthy living, supports a paradigm shift from the conventional food model, which is rural, disconnected and monoculture to an alternative contemporary approach which is urban, connected and distributed.
Sky farms are designed to support social innovation and sustainability: they connect and engage communities, educate and enable sharing in collaborative socially desirable environments
Impact: positively impact the psychology and quality of life of urban residents by repurposing unused spaces and so encourage a re-distribution of the food chain, increase knowledge of how to grow local organic food, increase green space in the city that will help to reduce hot island city effect and reduce energy usage for cooling and heating,
