Hi Shuting!
The Trash-Talk reward setup is actually very well aligned with the Giving Back idea, and special applause for the video and the idea of establishing the ambassador. I find it's important to have somebody that participant can talk to, share experiences and be inspired by.

As for the Giving Back incentives, it could be better to provide cash instead of voucher/ coupon, because the cash can help the donor to recover their 'investment' faster.

Hi Jaime,

Thank you for the link! I've checked it out and Acterra have comprehensive criteria yet simple enough to be understood. We can also learn from the winners program models.
Yes, I would like to be connected with the award recipient. Please let me know the contact. Thank you!

Hi Shuting,

Thank you for your comment. Yes, Patrik has a great idea, but here I'd like to make something simpler (so simple that we do not need any paper/ screen to pitch), dumb-proof, fit to all, easy to explain (to people from all education level, age & culture), and very easy to remember. Therefore, this initiative could be communicated & spread by more people from mouth to mouth.

Yes, let's make toolkit together! Few basic things we need to include in the toolkit:

1. Getting Started
1.1. Select Community
1.2. Raise Awareness (Campaign Ideas & Example of Best Practices)
1.3. Recruit Participants
2. Implementation
2.1. Smart Meter
2.2. App
2.3. Monitoring process
2.4. Support system
3. Reward scheme
3.1. Incentive (scheme & delivery)
3.2. Program Funding (criteria, funding & mentoring/ incubator/ follow up)
3.3. Award (criteria & award)

But before all that, there are some first questions I need to answer:
1. What are simple best practices where a participant can help in providing renewable energy for others?
2. What kind of energy are we talking about?
3. Which smart meter to be used?

Please feel free to add, comment & build on this.
I'm looking forward to work together with you ;D
