Explain your idea in details:

Distributing Information can save a life. It is important to provide updated preemptive Information in different Forms in certain Essential Products. Presenting information in certain essential products can help people to know when, what to do in urgent situations. It would help in raising awareness and simultaneously you would be helping the people who suffer from such force majeure. These products are hard to find when Natural Hazards happen such as Earthquake, Volcanos, Flooding and Tsunami. Many regions face major challenges nowadays - be it natural catastrophes, diseases or any other emergency conditions. A study by The Ad Council and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) found that US Family preparedness for disaster is fairly unusual. The survey found that only 19% of American families felt that they were "very prepared" for a disaster. That 69% of Americans do not have a family emergency plan. NCEMA (The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority 2013) in United Arab Emirates: 1.1.2 Do you have enough information about earthquakes? (a) 65.39%- 410 out 627- answered No (b) 18.82%- 118 out 627- answered Somehow Another surprising statistics, a study done by (NCBI) (US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health 2013) for People Republic of China ((The residents in 4 counties of Shaanxi lack comprehensive knowledge and appropriate activities of disaster preparedness, the rate of preparing household emergency supplies is low.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Full scientific paper on Drop box: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0todz24mabkfumg/Project%20The%20Essence%20-%20Sceintific%20Theme.docx?dl=0 When goods are readily available, there is no tendency to maximize the efficiency of their use.Using certain products to send a message; can save a life. Maybe you will be asking what will be the product. And why many people will see these guidelines? The Answer is: Water Bottles The benefit of Different Preemptive will help to spread awareness among large groups of people: 1.2.1 Written Form [ Literate] 1.2.2 Visual Form [Literate & illiterate] 1.2.3 Stamped Characters [Literate & illiterate] 1.2.4 Braille Characters [Blind & Visually Impaired] Based on my research , it is always easy to find historical data for all natural disasters, in term , strength level, magnitude, impact on people life , financial losses , and precautionary actions by government to reduce impact of natural hazards; the most surprising issue , is easy to access data in term of victims and injured people during such incident, but is really hard to find data and studies about if people really knows what to do in such incidents, and the reflective percentage on this issue on people overall death and injury. While ignoring that there is direct correlation between peoples awareness to preparedness awareness and number of death/injured from natural hazards. Taking in consideration, this issue does not only exist in developing countries, but also in developed countries. Referring to a study done about The Role of Education on Disaster Preparedness by (Raya Muttarak and Wiraporn Pothisiri 2012) We found that formal education can increase disaster preparedness and reduce vulnerability to natural hazards.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

I am seeking opportunity for funding to test the project in certain locations and document the process and impact on people life. And Based on the outcomes from people feedback and comments, i will take their recommendations in consideration to do all adjustments, in order to start distribution in large scales in countries level, not just selected areas. I am planning to start project concept in certain areas in certain countries, and later on expand the project to reach most of countries who suffers from natural hazards. Taking in consideration, the project concept can be used a tool to distribute preparedness awareness information for any emergency theme.

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well-known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "premortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copies the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.
