1. Poor children (or everyone) can receive multimedia content surfing the Internet for high quality or recommended online courses (MOOCs) to receive basic or job education (primarly financial and entrepreneuship), other than lifestyle tips(best and sustainable practices can be replicated and expanded almost everywhere!) with tools like BRCK™.
2. They (or any unskilled people) can ask for help or tutoring to many “experts” in the nearby areas thanks the Internet. If anyone can give answer, further volunteers are notified and asked to give a response. Note: as a volunteer receives sporadic notifications (unless he decides differently), the load is subdivided first between the ones that are geographically near, then progressively to the entire world, making it feasible for anyone to make a small but significant contribution, using a method like Google’s “Crowdsourcing” app.
3. When enough prepared, they (or any wantrapreneur) can search for pressing problems that community around (or global) struggle and use their motivation and skills to join other individuals in squad to create a start-up that solve it! If they need help, they can ask as before; they can apply to incubators or challenges to search funds or leverage the citizens who have that pain point to crowdfund their idea!
– Poor people can receive instructions to create hydroponics or better irrigation techniques to reduce water needs and produce food more efficienty
-Best nutrition tips can be diffused easily, like the knowledge on how to cook for family and friends
– Even where there’s no work, focusing on problems instead of sparks of ideas could be a successful practice to create startups that have clients for sure if well crafted. All the resources needed to run a business are summarised in GuruWorld, so almost anyone can become an entrepreneur and increse wellness
– Every community can have concrete and updated datas to work on its own needs and solve those
– Phisical centers for trainig aren’t needed or can count on high quality material that needs only to be started!
-GW promotes any volunteerism opportunity (and discourage Voluntourism) making you aware of the opportunities you can do also online (like promoting social media page of a non-profit, creating multimedia content, etc.) or doing Advocacy spreading all the news about Social Innovation and SDGs
– My platforms would categorise difficulties of communities and make individuals join to address them, asking for help to others in their area or to the world and publicly share their solutions once completed, to be extended with proper adaptations everywhere. Leverage of Crowdsource power can create useful and successful solutions to pressing societal problems and empower vulnerable people with very small effort of everyone cooperating.
-It’s measurable what and where’s needed for Public Admins.
-Who is helped by this platform could donate/invest part of their earnings to pay for food and shelter of most vulnerable people around or in the world.
Better water management
To widespread: arup.com/perspectives/flowing-in-virtuous-circles -Drinking water moves through pipe networks using pressure reducing valves (PRVs), a process that creates energy. New in-pipe hydrokinetic systems use micro-turbines to convert this *energy into electricity that can be fed back into the grid*. This means lower costs and greener operation for utility firms -Algae processing bio-reactors don’t just treat and clean wastewater – they also produce usable materials such as *biomass (for energy production) or otherwise hard to synthesise chemicals for the pharmaceutical industry* With: arup.com/news-and-events/ellen-macarthur-foundation
