all it takes is one idea to change the world; so here's mine 🌎 #oneidea
Problem: Unsustainable lifestyles in North America and lack of community
Solution: Improve sustainability and sense of community through engagement and involvement by starting a pilot project of pop up coffee shops in suburb greenspaces.
Lethbridge is a city of 90,000 and is a sprawl of ‘suburb’ style communities. Like many other communities in Alberta, Lethbridge is a community planned around the automobile. Despite having lots of park space Lethbridge only gets a walkability score of 42 (www.walkscore.com). When I think of a community I think of a group of people with good connections and strong support for one another. With that definition I would say that Lethbridge has zero community spirit. My #oneidea is to create a waste-free, sustainable, pop up coffee shop system, that could be moved among the neighbourhoods. This would allow people to have a place to gather that is walkable and would provide them with a place to connect with their neighbours. @eftourscanada watch the link in the bio for more info ☺️
