A really interesting project and well presented. I applaud the owner of the idea since the social, economic and environmental impact could be indeed considerable for the cities in many countries. I wish you success with implementation!
Dear Anna, it is nice idea and for sure very useful for the benefit of the environment and of the people. Did you think of what authorities you need to cooperate with in order to get the best use of the obtained data? I wish you good luck and further development of your idea as well as identification of the financial means for its implementation.
Nice idea for women empowerment. Maybe the benefit of the incubation centre would be higher than that estimated just for 10 women. Also it is good to think of a marketing strategy for clothing items made by trained women, what about an online marketing platform? It is important that each woman has the ownership of the goods created so they are in direct contact with the client and feel motivated to go further. Good luck with this nice project idea!
The issue of homeless and unemployed is of a concern in many countries. I only wonder how to get the government interested in supporting such projects. It seems not a simple question. Your intention is very noble. Good luck!
The idea is nice, it can add with solutions to the issue of parking which is a huge problem for big cities.
It would be nice if you add more to the sustainability goals the project contribute. Good luck!
Thanks for nice comments to the idea. I was thinking it might be a challenge in the beginning getting interested the beauty salons to participate. But promotion could be via social media and distribution of leaflets with information. The beauty salons can have a free registration on the platform for example showing the location, working hours and services provided. However, the premium members, will pay a fee, they can get photo gallery, publication in an advertisement brochure that will be widely distributed in most visited places in the city. I also would like to involve young artists that can promote the idea. Also those that will donate some money in water supply and sanitation will get promotion via TV and radio with whom we would like to cooperate.
The project is interesting. The issue of middlemen is quite of concern in many countries, these contributing in a way to exploitation of the smallholder farmers. It is nice if the project will contribute to food production and marketing at the local level without the contribution of the middlemen. However, in my opinion it is nice if you reformulate the project objectives. In my view, these do not clearly express the ideas of the project.
It is a nice idea, exchanging of seeds for waste and tree planting. I guess here the element of promotion of information of the population is very important. Besides the website and the platform, it is important to make a wide awareness campaign via twitter, facebook, instagram. This is for people to motivate them to plant as many trees and flowers as possible.
