Future hopes on a number of different levels are pinned on so-called green technologies: on one hand, they could help reduce the rapidly increasing global demand for energy, or even offer alternatives to finite resources like oil and coal; on the other hand, as highly committed politicians and young start-up entrepreneurs have long insisted, they could be a driving force behind the revival of our sputtering economy. In this spirit, Ars Electronica is staging a “Repair Fair” to spotlight a small selection of outstanding ideas, concepts and best-practice models that point the way to a brighter future. Visitors can take an up-close-and-personal look at green transportation when they take one of a whole fleet of electrical vehicles out for a spin on the E-Mobility Parcours. Additional informational material will be available on site and in the Infolounge.

Bad credit is an unfortunate detour on the road of life. It can take take away choices and stop you from enjoying wonderful opportunities. However, it is possible to fix your current credit problems and take steps to protect your future credit rating.

If your credit rating is not good, you may want to think about contacting your banks and asking to have your credit limit reduced. But, keep in mind this is only good if you can maintain a low balance. Lowering your credit limit to the point where you are maxing out is not something you want.

Make sure that the credit repair agency you choose to work with is reputable. There are a number of agencies out there that are really not that helpful. Many people fall victim to these scams every day. Read all the reviews that you can find and you should be able to make a decision about who you can trust.

Any company or credit counselor that claims they can erase all negative reports from your credit history should be viewed with some skepticism. Bad marks on your report will not go away for seven years. It is possible, however, to remove errant information.

Getting a reduced interest rate is the easiest way to reduce your overall debt. Creditors who charge exorbitant interest may be just a law suit away from having to wipe the slate clean. You did however sign a contract that agrees you will pay off all interests as well as the debt. Should you sue any creditors, it is important to push the fact that the interest rates are outrageously high.

Research consolidation options that may help you rebuild your credit record. Debt consolidation is often the best option for debt reduction, which leads to faster repair of your credit. Your debts are consolidated into one, giving you just one payment to have to handle each month. You need to learn as much as you can about rolling all your debt into one so you can see if it is the right thing for you to do.

It is difficult to just forget about negative reports, but writing a statement is useless. It is possible that this can be detrimental by drawing closer scrutiny to your report.

Do not carry high balances on any of your credit accounts. You can improve your score by lowering your balances. When your available credit passes 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 percent, it gets noticed by the FICO system.

Speak with them and work with the agency regarding repayments being made to the best of your abilities. Let them know a realistic amount you can pay. Remember that they will negotiate.

If you are having trouble creating a budget, or difficulty abiding by one, reach out to a credit counseling organization. These counselors can often arrange affordable repayment plans to get you out of debt, allowing you to focus on making wise financial decisions in the future. With assistance from credit counselors, you can learn valuable financial management skills while responsibly paying back your debt.

A secured credit card might be a good option for the person with a poor credit score. Most likely, a secured credit card will be easy for you to get, but you have to fund the credit account before you purchase so the bank knows that you won’t miss any payments. Responsible use of a credit card can help rebuild your credit.

This simple advice can aid you in repairing your credit issues and help you keep your credit in good shape. The time you invest educating yourself regarding credit repair is worth every minute.
