Explain your idea in details:
Global warming, extreme weather and stark resources shortage, all the warning signals are reminding us of the climate deterioration. The plantation area is highly responsible to the defense of global warming. Our project advocates for recycling and reuse of teaching books, to root out the paper wast, superfluous printing, massive reproduction and overstock of teaching materials. Our project would build Weplatform, served for teaching books donation, borrowing and renting along with e-books sharing, and a bonus and minus mechanism that confines the behaviors of the member in our platform. Every student that donates up to ten books to the platform, he or she will obtain the eligibility of associate membership. The identity bequeaths the right to borrow two books at a time free of any deposit and the borrowing length can be deferred once after ten days looms. If the books is returned in disrepair, the student will be scored minus. His exclusive membership right will be withdrawn by ratio. The full membership will enjoy greater right to borrowing pieces and length. Our project will tick one bar code for the book, tally and track the records of every book.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The project will bring out impact on the sustainable goal 13 Climate Action - take actions to combat climate change the its impact. The global warming is the main cause of excessive emission of carbon dioxide, which can be absorbed by the forest who releases oxygen. Forest destruction has contributed greatly to the global warming. Shaping the habit of recycling and reusing teaching books will help diminish the logging of forests. The project will be response to the sustainable goal 12 responsible consumption and production. We appeal for every student to make reasonable, sustainable and responsible consumption. The teaching books are processed out at the cost of the earths lifespan. Our project will develop e-books to replace the teaching book, guided the student to think twice before making unnecessary consumption on paperwork and switch from paper to electronics.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The platform takes the membership mechanism and integrating system to supervise the book recycling procedure. Common users will be collected deposit and the express charge for the book, while the members who committed to the book resources would be allowed to use the platform free of charge, and become the stakeholder upon the evaluation of the integrating system. E-book is a prevailing reading model on the rise. We will recruit volunteers committed to the content design and layout of the e-book module. In the meantime, our project will promote the threat of global warming on humans living and the citizens responsibility to conserve the climate. Currently the greenhouse gas imposed by forest destruction holds one fifth of the the gross emission of global greenhouse emission. Our project would host regular seminar and lectures to spread the climate deterioration situation and enhance the eco-friendly awareness among students.
My name is MOU Gaoyuyang, seventeen years old from Shanghai City, China. Since six years old, every year a lot of my new books would be piled in the basement. Some may be sold like paper trash. According to Observation, a News Weekly, the prodigality in teaching materials in our country is so astonishing that if the teaching books were recycled and reused, its predicted that it would have saved 2000 km2, equivalent to 5280 million tons pure water or 6,3 million ton coals, or building 40000 primary school. Annually 2.9 billion pieces of book are retailed totally valued CNY 26 billion. However the majority of these books were collected and disposed as trash. The concept of recycling and reuse of books has been appealed over ten years, but fails to work. I wonder who is standing in the way of book recycling. Is there anyones interest will be hampered, once the teaching books are recycled ? Im keen to expose the clue and find the solution.
