Hi Steve - Thank you so much for sharing this! Yes - definitely there could be an interconnection between these two resources.
I think the key thing difference with our idea is that this is crowd-sourced locally based knowledge. We believe information sharing from a bottom up approach could be empowering to community members and more in tune to the true cultural atmosphere of the community. The hope would be that UNHCR, or other managing agencies, could use the information gathered from the chalkboard maps to better address community needs as the camp continues to grow/evolve. Thanks again for your help!
These are all awesome ideas - thanks so much for contributing! I think the music and the lighting idea are awesome - I think for myself I would respond much better to lighting (Im more of a visual thinker and kind of a musical dunce) but everyone responds to things differently! I think both of these Ideas could be applied simply to the stairs (probably much cheaper than installing on the escalator) and encourages people to take the stairs (still more energy than walking up escalator).
I really love the two lanes idea - it could also be great on a city sidewalk! Maybe there could be signage that explains the average walker in the green lane burns X-calories per block whereas the average red lane walker burns Y-calories per block. A way for people to think about there everyday walking as a way to get in some exercise.
