Solar Powered Robot

Many people may not aware that Australia burns a staggering amount of fossil fuel on grass cutting every year. Each lawn mower emits the same amount of greenhouse gases of 40 cars. We all love our lawns, but it is about time for us to consider clean energy lawn mowers. While solar panels are becoming more assessable and AI robotics technologies are maturing. I pledge to apply my engineering and business knowledge to develop a solar powered autonomous grass cutting robot, along with my student-run robotics team. Supporting sustainability through innovation.

Monash Uni-cycling

According to VISTA (Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity), the average trip in Metropolitan Melbourne is 8.9 km. That's only 40 minutes on a bike! But the fact is that only 3% of university/TAFE commuters in the middle suburbs use bikes, compared to 31% in the inner suburbs. My pledge is to learn how to register for sharebikes and start riding more between locations on and off campus to save time. It's a fun way of getting your daily dose of exercise and to reduce carbon emissions. You get 180 minutes free daily and there are options to park the bike many places around campus. If more people ride, pressure on local public and private transport will be reduced. As they say: "Reserve, release, ride and return". It's that easy.

We've golden soil and wealth for toil?

To protect the environment, we should never buy food with useless packages wherever you go. Also, get the right amount of food and stop food wastage, especially when part of Australia is now under drought and it is our responsibility to protect our golden soil and wealth for toil.

Taking trains to the city

Enjoy the scenery of the world most livable city by taking trains and Yarra Trams. The enjoyment is irreplaceable! This experience is always better than driving alone.

Reduce my carbon footprint

Every single product produced and consumed in this world has an impact on the environment and every individual who uses this product is responsible for this impact as they are the consumers of it. Hence, it is very important to be aware of the carbon footprint each one of us leaves in this world whenever we switch on a light bulb or turn the ignition of our car on. Awareness of the environmental impact of such small human activities will help create a better world where we are grateful for the natural resources we have and start using them more efficiently. I have decided to undertake the following steps to reduce my carbon footprint in this world: 1. I will stop using plastic bags and instead use re-usable bags. 2. I will use public transport to travel within city limits instead of a car. 3. I will use recycled paper for writing and reduce the amount of print-outs i take. 4. I will use energy efficient CFL lamps / bulbs. 5. I will use water responsibly 6. I will try to find a sustainable solution to the problem of plastic pollution which is affecting the natural world. 7. I will try to develop renewable energy sources so that the dependence on fossil-fuel and hence, the pollution is reduced.

Use Jute Bags for shopping

I wanted the most eco friendly bags to use for shopping, as the green supermarket bags are still a type of plastic. Cotton, and even organic cotton, still use a lot of resources ( water and chemcials for nonorganic) to produce. Jute however requires much less water, grows quickly and requires minimal to no fertiliser. Although I was aware of the carbon miles the bags would travel, I chose to buy some made by a Bangladeshi Womens Co-op and the bags are fantastic. Best still, I can home compost them when they are no longer useable:)

Uni-cycler

I've decided that instead of driving to Monash Clayton everyday, I shall ride my bike to South Yarra Station, train to Huntingdale, then ride to campus. Whilst this takes longer and is more expensive than driving, it removes more traffic from the roads (reducing congestion and the risk of road fatalities), and improves my own health and well being at the same time. Furthermore it promotes clean energy by reducing the carbon emissions from my car!

Share the solar message

I want to be able to spread the word of solar (and other renewable) sources of energy and increase my capacity and knowledge to increase the amount of people in my life and social circles that understand the value of clean energy and transitioning away from polluting fossil fuel energy suppliers.
