What happens when you put a small team of capable, really smart people, dedicated to “tackle climate change themselves”, together?
Eh… they attract high ranked really nice people; our Dutch Prince Constantijn and Prinsess Laurentien and… our Dutch Queen Máxima showing their fascination for top sustainable development & design! It was an honour and our pleasure to meet you!
Well, there we are! Engaging in an new way of living, an new way of completely Self Sufficient Housing & Homing? Meet Tiny TIM:
And something beautiful has happened: Tiny TIM is a big winner!
Where to meet Tiny TIM? In October this year at the Dutch Design Week 2016 in Eindhoven between 22 October and 30 October.

Our-Green-Spine Smart Encouters & Products is an example of multi-disciplinary co-creation (“smart encounters of a unique kind”).
But is there any further involvement of Our-Green-Spine?
Yes indeed! Self sufficient empowerment of Tiny TIM by ” Tiny Gardens of Eden” based on Our-Green-Spine landscaping.
A “Tiny Garden of Eden” establishes a pleasant, moderated climate around the Tiny TIM houses.
The embedding of Tiny TIM houses in the by Our-Green-Spine carefully designed shelterbelt structures of the “ Tiny Garden of Eden” results in the establishment of a little green (micro) climate planet which moderated temperatures in warm and cold seasons, moderated wind velocity and effective water management improving the efficiency of the Tiny TIM houses resulting in a “negative ecological footprint” including even CO2 -uptake!.
