EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA
Light is important during the evening to keep safe and develop education. It allows people to read and share.
Kids and adult- reading groups like the one describe in the previous Amplify challenge !
It can be implemented in places where there is a lack of electricty. It can also help bring people together : you need someone to harvest the first algae and then redistribute it.
HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
Currently, the sketch made does not take into account building material that are found on site. But it's easy to imagine building it out of see through plastic bottles. Also I should develop an infrastructure that is easy to build to farm the algae.
