The local train
Explain your idea in details:
Let me explain in this way,Everybody wants to be in news or in television or any social network but in a way so people will appreciate them.But Nobody wants that in a bad way.So the idea is to make an app or a website and make it public by announcing that If you found anyone who is throwing garbage out of the windows,on the road and in the garden.Then what you have to do is,just click the picture of that person and upload it on the website.Those who will do that will get reward for examples by uploading 10 photos he/she will get a reward.But those who found on website will have to pay a penalty.Just for fear we will say that we will match your photo with the Data on internet. We will put this thing on every news channel , every news paper for some days so people will aware of that.We can upload some photo by ourself so they will think this is serious.It is better if the website or the app owned by the government.It will help. There are some improvement we can make based on comments 1.Before capturing the pic just try to make them aware about do not throw garbage this is wrong.This will create awareness. 2.If any body is uploading photos on that app then Photo must shows that they are doing wrong.you can not upload any photos. 3.If anyone found who is using this website in a wrong way the he/she will get tough punishment. 4.There are many government employes in every department it will be better if we only give permission to them to take picture and make people aware about it .They can do that cause they already work for government.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
There can be a huge impact on sustainable development because my idea covers some of the goals of sustainable development which are life on land,climate action,life below water and good health.But the only thing is it depends on the people because everything is all about awareness .I am expecting not much but atleast people will just think before throw garbage not because of nature and all that but they had a fear in their mind that may be someone is watching or someone can upload photos of me. If this will help then it impact looks like a watermelon having all seeds in one place instead of non-uniformly distributed.Here watermelon is the earth and seeds are garbage. I am only expecting this much but I think it will be enough.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My idea does not required any business model and financing source.It only needs a website or app which does not cost much money.But If I design it and launch it then it will not work.As I told you earlier we need to make people aware about what it is all about.I can not do that.Only people who have power like government or other people can make it and spread the news on every news channel and spread it all over all world. My plans is just to aware you about my idea cause you can help me to implement my idea.So you are the collaborators.
