From TAS teacher, Cassie Perry
Congratulations to Waverley College students Will Gibson, Finn Anderson, Luke McLellan, Edward Sullivan and Patrick Hoggett in Year 9 who have worked collaboratively to submit a pitch for the NRMA future of transport challenge.
These young entrepreneurs have a vision for the future that involves ‘getting more cars off the road in Sydney’. They believe that ‘cars have a major impact on many issues relating to the environment including increased air pollution and greenhouse gases, as well as being the cause of major tragedies on our roads. This congestion can also cause stress, longer travel time and increased vehicular queueing’.
Their submitted initiative is for ‘a car share app that aims to reduce the amount of cars on the road in Sydney. This solution will allow multiple people to travel to the same location together. This could be useful for adults going to work or students going to school’. Their proposed app “Carlaborate” is designed to unite people.
The top four finalists in this competition will be announced on the 21st August and invited to the Youth Eco Summit where they present their pitch.
