Projeto de gerenciamento de resíduos em pequenas comunidades. (waste management for por small commun
Explain your idea in details:
I had this idea while I was working for the government at a small rural communitie close to where I live. I saw that most people is not aware of the importance of separating and give a correct destination to solid waste. And this motivated me to write a project to develop a community system to separate, accommodate and sell treated material to partners. Previously, in the project we should approach people to talk about the importance of separating recyclable goods. Them the idea is to build a place to treat it and send it to recycling companies. The application of this will demand resources to buy a small motorcycle adapted to collect the recyclable material in the houses, than a small place to separate and acomodate the material. The project is divided in steps and attends up to a hundred families. Step 1 Environmental education, step 2 finding partners and build structure, step 3 applicate project.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
I hope that with this project I can come up with a model that can be executed in small scale through diferent parts of the world. A revolutionary aproach on how to develop a sistem of human integration with the awarenes of the pathway that should be taken by the waste. I´m sure that only by touching anyone to look after the waste, more than satisfies me, that´s to be succesfull. The conscequences of what we are doing can only be reversible if we start from where we are right now, maybe that means to start knowing how to separate our waste, composting. Like the Idea, the responsability of doing this, is not only mine.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
First of all, as it is a social/econômic Idea. This needs funding . And as there is no one for now, I volunteered myself to work hard and dream about applying this someday. The idea is to open a space, close to a region where people are fragile economically. And from that place start an evironmental education and collaborators quest, to find people, from a constricted region, consisting a community of people interested in treating and working with waste. Then, with a place set up, start managing the waste of the collaborators who are sending it to us throught our collecting vehicle. And sending it to partner who recycling partners.
To this point. really sorry for that. But I want no recognitions or praises or prizes. What motivates me is love for mother nature, as it cries. I am sad for that. As student of environmental management, at 30, I am trying to live with no expectations for now. Making a true effort to be as coherent as possible.
