REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
Login5 Foundation Challenge
First some background of the challenge
In order for the human race to survive on planet Earth, we believe people need to change the way they use the Earth’s resources.
We always tend to take care of ourselves and our families first. It is only when we live a comfortable life and don’t feel threatened that we can afford to think about the rest of the world – other people and nature. Not all people are at this stage of comfort, as conditions necessary for them to be able to change their mindset have not materialised yet.
At the moment, the majority of people are just part of the problem (increasing emissions) and not also part of the solution (reducing emissions).
And now the challenge
To buy humanity more time on the planet, we most probably need to come up with technology that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions already in the next few years.
The budget for this challenge is not limited, but solutions that are cost efficient are more likely to be financed. Time is limited as the objective to have these solutions implemented is roughly 10 years.
Do not be discouraged if your idea is not yet ready for implementation. We would still like to hear it - along with your estimate of research and development needed.
How will the submissions be evaluated?
The following criteria will be taken into account
- The ethical aspects of the solution.
- The time frame needed for research and implementation.
- The predicted amount of future greenhouse gasses removed from the atmosphere (by reduced emissions or directly removed; any greenhouse gas and not only CO2) per USD invested.
We are looking forward to your submissions.
