Forum Barcelona 2004 has invited inventors from all over the world to present their proposals. This will be a unique occasion, allowing their inventions to be seen by millions of people. The Forum will include the Cubes of Good Ideas, a showcase for these inventions that aim to improve life, and which reflect the three themes of the Forum: sustainable development, cultural diversity, and the conditions for peace. Some 100 cases measuring four square meters will be installed to allow visitors to familiarize themselves with objects of daily use, and which will contribute to create a more sustainable environment, while improving ordinary people's lives. The last day for admissions is September 1.
