Collaborative art and architecture is a great way of getting people working together, giving them a common interest and something they can all work towards. This is a 2D to 3D brick that will go towards a grand structure and an online gallery.

Charlotte commented on Grow Your Future

How can you develop the imagery to be more visually descriptive? I love the concept of growing vegetables and enabling people to be self-sufficient in nourishing themselves and being aware of healthy eating. How would the seeds be packaged and distributed?

Hi Susanne I really like the idea of using toys to learn. Have you thought about recylcing old toys and turning them into new toys? Or starting a project where you can collect donations from people with unwanted toys and passing them onto these toy libraries.

Charlotte commented on Children's community resource centers

Esther, I think this idea is fantastic and it seems you have put a lot of thought and consideration into this. I especially applaud you are trying to think of ways to set up a system that offers safety to children who can be exposed to dangerous situations. The free meals idea is great too, because many families struggle to ensure their children are getting the correct nourishment on a minimal income. Have you researched what sort of vegetables grow in these areas? Could you encorporate the growing of vegetables as one of the activities for the children? This could enhance their learning and their diet at the same time. The idea is great! This level of learning seems to be for ages 5 and above. What sort of ideas can come of this to focus on 0 to 5 years? You mention setting up support systems for mothers and caregivers too, which is great. How can this be implemented in a way that will combine learning for parents as well as children? Good luck taking this idea to the next stages of development, I hope this is successful and goes on to help and improve the quality of life and learning for children and families in years to come!
