Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The primary goal is to reach at least 600 downloads within the first semester of the launching of the app. That will mean that at least 600 people have done something to contribute to society in our first 3 cities that we are planning to be present in the fist semester. In addition, at least 1/3 of them shared their experience on social media and AwareWeGo !!!
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The app is being provided for free in the App Store and Play Store with no cost for the end users. The revenues are coming from the established partnerships with organisations and municipalities as service fees. The app is financed with own capital and business-angels.
