SOLUTION & PROTOTYPE

Scene 2 (7s)

Text Description automatically generated

We have used sustainability as our medium for this project. We feel there shouldn't be a less moral or ethical impact on the environment and ultimately to our mother earth, while advocating for a “Theory Of Change” for the betterment of lives. Cooperation and understanding between the members of the society and between the company and the costumers is essential for a happy, healthy and productive community.

Solution 1

SOLAR WINDOWS ( solar powered windows) This would contribute to the environmental pillar of the SDGs by: More customer-friendly , cost-effective, environmentally sustainable

HOW DO THEY WORK? The sunlight that passes through a building's windows not only lights the interior of the building but also transmits a solar energy through the glass.

Traditionally solar panels were installed on the roof of buildings but now due to advanced technology we can replace them with transparent solar panel windows.

Several energy technology companies are working to develop solar windows, systems that will convert that solar energy to electricity, thereby serving the building's energy needs at the same time that its cooling needs are reduced.

Scene 5 (1m 18s)

Our next idea is community farms!

Owing to one among the pillars of the SDGs- ”The Social and Environmental pillar” , which is something the UAE has always strived to achieve .

Scene 6 (1m 31s)

Community farms(DSO) is an initiative to inspire working together and producing more locally grown vegetables ,which can then be pooled once fully grown.

This sustainable yet not so popular measure by the DSO authorities is a measure to be leading by example. It could gain more wider awareness once the Eltizam community starts following .

abstract

Instead of the harvest being pooled by the tenants and others living in the community alone, it could also be shared among the societal workers of the community, thus building more bond between the workers and the tenants by forming an understanding among them about the betterment of the community.
