Best Ideas 2020 features all the nominated entries submitted under ‘Submit your Idea’ category. All the entries consist of innovative solutions or propositions for an enterprise that champions the Sustainable Development Goals. They can be on the conceptual, planning, or start-up stage.
Explain your idea in details:
The objective of the project is to reduce pollution and carbon dioxide emissions into the environment. With the help of volunteers and government support, the project would help increasing inspection of inadequate actions in the streets such as leaving the car on (which increases unnecessary carbon dioxide emissions) or even convincing the society to increase collective transportation. With the government support, money could be provided just for the tickets so it affects peoples lives directly, since thats the only way they actually pay attention to the problem. Besides that, participation on social media would help to show everyone the work being done and even invite others to help, besides showing people alternative ways of transportation and actions that help the environment.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
With the project, it is expected to decrease climate change and the amount of pollution in the world, hoping to affect every country and every government around the globe. With the help of professionals (voluntarily), it would be measured the level of heat and gas pollution in the air, as well as the level of the oceans and the melting of the polar ice caps. The project should start where those levels are at its highest, and would later on move everywhere.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
It would be necessary to convince professionals to measure the levels voluntarily and individuals to help on the inspection at the streets. Besides that, government help would be provided just for the use of tickets for the ones inflicting environmental laws. For others source of financing, collaborators would be provided, with the project patronizing their enterprises of sorts.
My name is Leticia Lagares, I am 18 years old and Im a Brazilian citizen. I am just finishing high school and soon will enter university. The current pandemic has made me realize how simple act of nature could tear down everything human nature has built. And with that in mind, I realized how people dont pay attention to what is happening right around them, and thats where I found motivation to make up an idea to help the environment in any way that I could.
