ParkCar Chill

Me and my teammates are currently creating an app helping drivers book and secure the on-street parking spot in advance and settle the payment online. Not only ParkCar Chill helps driver decrease money loss by setting the parking fine alert system, but also contribute to a smarter city by potentially lowering the traffic jam and pollution. And finally, we can help government to save more human cost by hiring less ticket officer.

FOCUSSING ON CLEAN ENERGY

Using more efficient means of energy to reduce carbon emission and other harmful greenhouse gases. I aim to move away from using fossil fuels such as petrol in cars or gas for electricity. I will ride my bike to uni and work to avoid using my car, as well as, eat more healthy plant based raw foods that require minimal cooking, electricity and resources to grow. Additionally, be more conscious of energy use including turning off unnecessary lights and power points, waking up with the sun to be more productive during natural light hours and being more organised and efficient with use. I want to half the amount of petrol I use weekly, and half the home electricity bill. We must all be aware of our ecological footprint and the way we live our lives as it significantly impacts the environment around us. It's making small changes like this that are not only beneficial for the environment, but also for our own bodies and mental health.

Sort out recyclable wastes and encourage kids to do so. Let them know the importance of this act and when refund is available for certain products like aluminium cans, then encourage them to volunteer and collect such products and use the raised funds to use for a good cause or contribute to charity.

GOING MINIMAL

I pledge to adopt minimalism across all areas of my life. It is a step - a mindset - that I will be adopting which would help me take decisions consciously and deliberately to check my consumption behaviour and reduce my carbon footprint.

BRING MORE SOLAR ENERGY

I am now running a solar energy project mainly focusing on solar street light and solar security camera (still in the promotion stage). I find out solar products in Australia are still using old technology and extremely expensive. We are trying to bring a new generation battery to Australia for a more sustainable future. Our solar street light is aiming to match the price of the normal street light. It has an extraordinary 10 years battery life with rapid charging function and can be charged between -30℃ to 65℃ .

ELIMINATE SINGLE USE CUPS

Whether it is a coffee, tea, hot chocolate, pumpkin spiced latte, or just water; having a reusable cup or mug reduces the number of non-recyclable cups and plastic bottles that enter our environment.

Money Where Your Mouth Is

I pledge to divest my money from unsustainable practices. I will do this by reviewing and making appropriate changes to: 1. My superannuation fund 2. My bank 3. My energy provider As long as fossil fuels are considered profitable, they'll continue to be burnt. I want to put my money where my mouth is and make sure that I'm not inadvertently supporting practices that I want to see eliminated!

INDIA EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Currently in India, communities are still using kerosene lamps. Bring LED lights to communities is more sustainable for the future, allows people to study at night, and travel safely during night time.

Cycling for transport

Carbon emissions are produced in their billions per year from automobile emissions as well as public transport options. These carbon emissions damage not only our environment but have a significant impact on our health in the long run. As an alternative to driving and catching the bus to get to places, I'll be cycling instead. Cycling has been a hobby of mine for a long time and has been a fun and health benefiting exercise that is easy to get around to places. I'll hope to be able to cycle to Uni for classes and reduce my dependency on PTV and driving.
