Great thinking, Kate Rushton ! I'm betting diapers would be a big need as well, and even having someone to support and check in on new (and especially single) moms would likely be of huge support. Interesting to consider how this might grow to become a community-driven effort (literally).
Thank you! We are so thrilled to be highlighted amongst these other inspiring ideas. Looking forward to seeing how we can continue to design for climate innovation, and participating in the OpenIDEO climate change community!
Hi Matt, thank you for your support and the wonderful OpenIDEO platform! I am indeed working on this effort, and we would welcome your help and input. Our crowdfunding campaign is nearing its final hours, but beyond that we'd just love to share what we have with the OpenIDEO community and continue to refine our content to match the needs of more diverse types of neighborhoods, helping create solutions for issues on a local level and empowering people to take action.
We crowdsourced the expertise of folks with backgrounds in sustainability, energy, education, agriculture and more to create the Handbook, and would welcome new tips and tricks for growing climate-friendly communities--I'm sure there's a wealth of knowledge and expertise among your contributors. Maybe this would be a great way to figure out how to incorporate and implement some of the other impressive ideas in this challenge!
