Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

françaisREGULEUM is a startup of recycling and transformation of waste in biofuel and biogas.
REGULEUM will launch recently the platform Universe corner (unicoin): reward your acts and lifestyle respectful of the environment. Earn one for the "green" steps you take to save the planet. ... Then use coins as currency to push your ecological behavior to the extreme.
The idea is simple: every time you return the batteries to a collection point or use plastic or paper in the right direction or when you participate in an event It is ecological (for example, clean the neighborhood, plant trees), or if you share information about green products and projects, we will reward you with a specific number of unicoins.
You can then spend the coins to receive sponsored gifts or uni-products from our partners, or exchange them on auctions for things that other users are willing to give (old refrigerator, television, sofa, etc.). ). This will add gamification to the problem of ecology economics and should stimulate people to contribute.
If we consider that 5% of the population are those who care about ecology and are ready to act for the cause - we should have about 700,000 users in Senegal, 15 million in Africa, 40 million in the EU and 350 million worldwide.
We plan to make money through advertisements, sponsors and coin exchanges.

Who are the beneficiaries? (1,000 characters)

Everyone is a beneficiary of the project because waste pollution is a major problem for the environment. The biodiesel and biogas produced from this waste will give our farmers and breeders the opportunity to optimize their production and make it easier for anyone to fight against global warming.

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

The idea is unique because it allows everyone to feel involved in the fight against waste pollution by giving them all the means to get started. That's why, we decided to launch the website called Corner Universe (unicoin), its purpose is whenever you return the batteries to a collection point or use plastic or paper in the common sense or when participating in an event It is environmentally friendly (for example, cleaning the neighborhood, planting trees), or if you share information about green products and projects, we will reward you with a specific number of unicoins.

Idea Proposal Stage (choose one)

  • Initial Design: I am exploring the idea, gathering the inspiration and information I need to test it with real users.
  • Prototype: I have done some small tests or experiments with prospective users to continue developing the idea.

I often used public transport to go to my training institute. I often observed people buying plastic water bottles or plastic drink bottles and throwing them in the street after use. That put me out of my mind and made me find a solution for this waste, which was becoming more and more of a danger and, above all, to change people's behavior in the face of this phenomenon: to grasp the problem at its source.

Please explain how your selected topic areas are influenced, in the local context of your project (1,000 characters).

Climate change will profoundly affect agricultural and forestry production. The effects in terms of production potential will be very variable depending on the regions and plant cover. They may result in an overall trend of moderate stimulation in temperate climates and limited warming to 2 ° -3 ° C. Beyond this, as in low latitudes, excessive temperatures and increased frequency of droughts will lead to negative effects. These impacts will lead to adaptations, which will combine local changes in cropping or management systems, as well as geographic shifts in production systems. The actors in the field, who have already been able to observe significant changes as a result of recent warming, are fairly well prepared by adopting initiatives such as green energy consumption including biofuels, biogas ...
