Climate change is the most important issue of our lifetime. But, it’s not an intangible problem and is caused by factors all of us can directly influence. Many people lack the motivation to live sustainably. What if we made a sustainable life more fun? What if we gave people incentive to decrease their contribution to climate change? We could save the earth together!
What it does
Project Global is an app aimed to make people more aware of the environmental impacts of every small activity they indulge in and take measured steps towards a more sustainable life. The application quantifies the efforts made by individuals through carbon coins and rewards them for completing various actions. We hope to make users embrace sustainability through the usage of our app.
How we built it
Using Figma we created a prototype for our app.
Challenges we ran into
The project was completed by two sisters living in completely different time zones. It was a struggle to work on the project when we were both awake.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud to have created an application through the ideas of an International Development Studies student and a Computer Science student. This hackathon was the first hackathon one of us participated in. Taking that into account, we are super proud of how our project turned out!
What's next for Project Global
Moving forward, we are hoping to make Project Global come to life. Launching an app with the basic functionality of this prototype in the App Store is the next step!
