We used to go to volunteer drives and protests about climate change back in high school. But we realized that people are still quite desensitized to the earth literally rotting away. At the time we were also really into Money Heist on Netflix. That's where we gleaned some wisdom from the Professor, that what unites people most is money. So we thought, if people really think this way why dont we apply this to climate change. People might actually come together start committing to change.
What it does
It's an app that allows anyone to host their own climate change awareness campaigns and events. But not in a vaccum. They can garner support from interested parties in the form of followers, donations, sponsorships, advertisement and so much more. Whosoever has the most attractive, followed, and successful campaign, will be awarded a crowd-sourced prize which could be in the form of cash, coupons, accessories and so much more. These campaigns can be about anything from CO2 Emissions to recycling.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We haven't exactly put together the code for this yet so it is only at the prototype stage.
Accomplishments that we're proud of With this idea we can use people's personal interests to fuel the fight against climate change and inconspicuously educate them about its demerits. After all. they're gonna have to know enough about climate change if they wanna win.
What we learned
