The social and economic landscape of Switzerland is changing. While the social contract is maintained by city social services, what happens when those working poor reach retirement age ?
Furthermore long term unemployment is a problem for individuals greater than 45 years old. As individuals turn to short-term and part-time work to make ends meet, employers restrict hours to avoid paying into the LPP
What are the costs of this employment strategy ? If a greater portion of people are not paying into the pension system how are we going to maintain the social contract as they reach retirement age?
What is the cost of cheap labor today in relation to pension contributions and values in the future ?
hammerdirt will take a look
We like numbers and colors. Data visualisation is a core competence at hammerdirt
Maybe it's because we are better at math than grammar, either way there is no better way to explain or demonstrate a concept than interactive graphics.
While many people hash over the same old data sets provided by the developers of this powerfull library, hammerdirt will look at data from real life.
Sourced from the crowd or from underexploited data sets, we will dive deep into this library and get to know it intimateley
Along with hammerdirt California, we will conduct a litterature review of riparian habitats in California and Switzerland. Focussing on the dominant species of the American River and the Lac Léman.
Now that we have a backend that can recieve and process data from a variety of sources we will finally build that water qaulity monitor
Each project builds to the next and our focus is on learning and developing key skills for the information based economy
