Explain your idea

In Morocco; a community of nomads still exists. I don't only care about them because they need help especially with securing heating or colling in hard weathers, but Also because we need to maintain and protect this kind of living. I call it organic way of life and this is what and where the world is leading back again. I see them suffering especially in very cold weather while we just feel sorry and regret their situation; so my idea is that electricty can be provided through the human race itself. We can give a ne wrebirth to the human power via cycling. There is atechnology of cycling to generate energy and this energy can be used to make some machines to either produce heat or cooling. The most consequence is that people will not use trees more and then save them for us for more clean planet.

Who Benefits?

Nomades and people in remote areas who luck means of energy. The idea can be applicable to many other people including refugees in different spots of the world.

How is your idea unique?

The idea is unique because it's old and what I believe is that most of what is old is more organic to us. Our forfathers used to live cleaner ways and produced less damage because they did not rely too much on destructive machines. We follow their footpaths but in modern way- electricty genating power bikes gives dignity back to the human self to fee important again. There well also be au urgent need of volunteers to bike for volunerable people to help them get electricty.

Idea Proposal Stage

Tell us more about you

I am individual; full of enthusiasm to help the world. I know I have a mission in life because I don't want to be a dead living creature. I have tried many times to do something but they were with very little effect. I feel it's high time I did something for humanity because I am about to be 40 in age. I have been teaching since 2003 but not realy satisfied with my role.
