Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this challenge because climate change is the one out of the five to affect us or has already affected us. Climate change is affecting us ways we don’t know but already see everyday like the unpredictable weather we see everyday just in Ireland. Another thing that attracted us to climate change is that it is really not as hard as people think it is to solve but would probably cost people billions to stop since things like gases we use there companies would go bankrupt if we did stop using gases like petrol and diesel.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We didn’t know much about climate change except for the basic stuff because we didn’t think it would affect us that much. We know that in all honesty that it’s gonna be hard to solve but every small step we take can help us towards a greener earth. We also didn’t know that climate change has already been affecting us already and that everyone’s carbon emissions do matter because if everybody had the mentality of that “if I recycle does it really matter because everyone else don’t” but everyone’s change no matter how small or big the change is counted.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is a man with two children and is married and is from Pakistan. The challenge our hero currently faces is that his house has been destroyed by a massive flood. The flood has left him and his family homeless and even rationing their food as the dad can’t find a stable job because the flood has affected the city as well and destroyed many buildings and businesses. He is now currently trying to rebuild his house as he is an engineer but the soil is unusable and unstable for a house to be built so they stay homeless.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

We would try relocate him and his family to another safer part of the city for now till things return to normal. Relocating him and giving him a place to live would be the most important as it is winter and there is a possibility he and his family could die from the cold as climate change has made it colder then usual. Plus the floods have made conditions worse as thousands of other families are trying to get or have already found and have been moved to shelter because he is poor, help would be given last to him.

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

One solution that would be quick and pretty easy would be to start a go fund me to help the family and to share there story to the world so people would know what they are going through unfortunately at the moment and I think people would be feeling very for them and would feel for them and would try send as much money as possible so that would be put forward and towards trying to rebuild there house when possible and helping them get back onto there feet so they can be able to afford food and other essentials.

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

A question would be is there any tips you would to help us move and finales a product.
