This idea is a campaign and social enterprise for rapid transition to renewable resources.It will aim  tackle the problem of scarcity of resources and maximum utilisation of renewable resources like sun , water wind the  through these actionable steps:  
Energy awareness Campaign

•Social responsibility of an Architect
•Indigenous and Vernacular Architecture
•Smart Buildings
•Earthquake and Floor Resilient Buildings

The learning experience was collaboration with the team like Derick , Meena Kadir , Luz Gallo , Brian talking Sticker , our workshop , Charles and many more who have actually work towards sustainability was a great learning  experience of how to make use of existing resources and make world a better place for today and for times to come.
The end users who include marginalised communities , craftsmen of Pakistan , artisans , female students, unprivileged students , architects of tomorrow all are very excited to work on this initiative and bring a change in environment and social sustainability .  
•This Project will help us create awareness in architects to be towards sustainability
•Awareness of sustainability through involvement of policy and decision making bodies
•Disaster Risk Reduction
•Risk reduction through Architecture Design and Practice
•Awareness and use of local renewable materials and Vernacular Architecture.

The goals include working in collaboration with Pak Model High School , Arcasia , Comsats University , institute of Architects Pakistan , Banjaiga and my team at bridge peace , prosperity and planet challenge .
They will all look together to achieve financial , social , environmental sustainability . They application of the programs will be as discussed in my ideas:
Celebration for All
Promotion of Handicrafts and sustainable development for marginalised
Pak Model High School
Sustainable development through architecture education
Revival of Bhamala

The basic need is collaboration and formal signing up of memorandum of associations with all the platforms discussed earlier.
They will lead to collaborate for necessary monetary funding .

The skills we are looking for are as follow:
Visual Storytelling 




Business Development 




Project Management 

Marketing / Outreach 

Design Support 



Web Development  



If we take all the steps as planned we plan to achieve all our goals at this immaculate opportunity. 

All strategic actions Smile, Promote, Experiment and Survive will serve as research models . The Focus of the project will be:

•Sustainable Development and Better environment
•Sustainable Infrastructure
•Sustainable Development Challenges in Developing Countries
I assure you that this Platform we will be able to fight with all the challenges and come up with Sustainable Solutions for the coming Generations.I would like to conclude by Quoting The Brundtland Report 1987 :

“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
- The Brundtland Report 1987 

It will give us a chance to plan better tomorrow and talk about Future of the Past in terms of Sustainable Development through Alliance and collaboration.
