Avery commented on Air because we Care

Thank you for your feedback! That is an excellent addition to this idea that I think could make it more meaningful and productive - thank you for sharing!


Avery commented on Teaching for Change

Hi Maggie!

Your idea is definitely one to remember; helping a broad community by working through children is an excellent to make a change, especially as dramatic (and needed) as this one. However, I have a few questions on the logistics of this plan; for starters, what the children be taught how to, and would it actually be feasible to teach them these tools and for them to actually be carried out?

Second, how would you persuade these kids to do this, collecting trash and building things etc. when they have play time and school to think about?

Overall, I think this is a solid idea, thanks for sharing it. :)


Avery commented on University Gardens

This is a really really good idea!
For starters, you idea is clearly explained, thought out, and has a great message and purpose that it would fulfill. Have you considered any specific location; such as the United States, Europe, Asia, etc? Or, ideally, would this idea spread globally?
Another question: since your idea consist of constructing gardens, would you plant different types of vegetables and fruits based on the location, or would it be the same, consistent seeds being planted?
Overall, your idea has the makings to be an extraordinary development that would truly benefit the world.
