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.

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℃ .

For All

As a former Special Education teacher, I observed how I was participating in systems of exclusion in schools and, ultimately, in society. That's why I started studying MEd of Inclusive and Special Education, to learn how to contribute to INCLUSION. It was in this course that I became more aware of different forms of exclusion, and have begun thinking of ways that I can help develop a more inclusive future. Through being more inclusive, we can lift out of poverty those excluded from economic growth and employment, we can improve the emotional health and well-being of those excluded from access to their human rights, we can reduce inequalities between people excluded from opportunities, and ultimately create more developed, safe, and peaceful communities.

Vegetarian Warrior

I'll be committing to a vegetarian plant-based lifestyle. I've been eager to embark on this lifestyle choice for its two-fold efforts. The environmental impact of eating meat is too significant to ignore, with meat production being a significant contributor to greenhouse emissions. Being vegetarian will also preserve habitats and decrease deforestation. The additional benefits of having a healthy lifestyle are an added bonus. I am really excited to start this journey to help the environment and fight for social justice.

Monash University Sustainable Development Volunteering Program

Without help, the people, communities and natural environments that are significantly impacted by global challenges struggle to overcome these challenges and experience a sustainable and prosperous future. This One Step has the potential to work towards achieving each one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It consists of creating a sponsored sustainability focused leadership program for emerging leaders at Monash University. Students will be sponsored to lead a project addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Projects could include establishing a system where children and their families in Nepal have access to vaccinations, building appropriate education facilities in Bangladesh, travelling to Kenya to install clean water and sanitation facilities or stopping all single-use plastic consumption in Monash University. In addition, each project would aim to empower locals in each destination by equipping them with the knowledge and resources enabling them to continue sustainable practices in the future. It is the aim that each program will contribute to global sustainability while developing the sustainable leadership of Monash University students.

Towards zero waste

I want to reduce the amount of waste I am creating everyday and live more sustainably. I want to do this by reducing the amount of single-use plastic and other non-biodegradable materials. I am inspired by the Hobart city council's recent bylaw which will ban the use of single use plastics in the city. I aim to make conscious, ethical and sustainable decisions everyday In what I purchase, use and throwaway. I hope to live more sustainably in the next couple months and help encourage those around me to make small changes in their everyday life to help change the single-use plastic culture that is detrimental to the environment.

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

We've all heard it before... throughout primary school, high school, Uni and even at work. But how far do we take this catchy slogan? It wasn't until last year and the beginning of this year that I really thought about the 3 R's in depth. I learnt a great deal more about what it really meant, in both your personal life and the wider community. As a step that I have been following for the past year I have developed the concept further to fit in with my journey towards sustainable living. It goes; REDUCE - Consumption?? How much do I consume, daily to monthly, to even yearly. Fast-fashion was a really concerning topic for me. The industry is the epitome of a throwaway mindset. Clothes are made for next to nothing with exported labour costs worryingly low, using the cheapest, generally toxic materials at rapid paces. The used resources like the amount of water, the cotton, and after that the Co2 emissions that are unleashed make for an environmental catastrophe. Clothes being perhaps my most common buys - This year I am saying NO to the fast-fashion industry, YES to what I already have, to vintage/secondhand, to clothing swaps and more. To buying what I need, and not to the shiny new things. This leads us into the next R, REUSE: Looking at what I already have, and finding something new in them everyday, tending and fixing things that might break or tear and most of all being appreciative of the abundance of luxuries I've been lucky enough to have. It put me in a mindset that I already have everything I need to be happy, everything else is just a luxury! *A luxury that I cherish Restyling outfits had me pulling things out from 5 years ago, that I absolutely love now. RECYCLE; I found myself thinking about recycling as a last resort, because if your can recycle things again personally, it's really just reusing? This Christmas I wrapped my presents in cut- offs from material we had lying around. Most of the material was given back to me, where I can now use that for other projects or to wrap presents again. What once was a recycling event has turned to a reuse! Evidently, this is much more a first world problem where consumption is at a all time high. But reusing can be applied to almost anything, and doesn't always have to mean a major change. Reusing works hand in hand with reducing, as long as I'm committed to buying minimal and necessity (which will be different for everyone). I pledge to continue finding ways to infiltrate all 3 within my life and my surrounding community.
