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.

Better Education

I'm hoping to start an awareness campaign for better mental healthcare facilities in schools in my home country of Bangladesh before the end of this year. I will do this by approaching schools with a detailed plan of action and running workshops that explain how much it helps students to have mental healthcare available to them and how this leads to better education. I also plan on getting five friends involved in my campaign to spread awareness on better mental healthcare in Bangladesh.

inclusive social communities

There is a very large social divide between local and international students in Australian universities. I will do my best to help international students settle into a foreign environment and make them feel welcome by inviting them to social events and activities where they can create meaningful friendships with both local and international students. Furthermore, I will work towards a social business venture that aims to integrate international students with the local community.

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.

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.

Ride to sustainability

I will use my bicycle for my daily commute to university and work. The goal is to reduce the use of fossil fuels and the emission of greenhouse gases, as well as improve my personal fitness.
