Thank you very much for your proposal on the “Youth action on climate change” contest.
Your proposal was among the 15 which the Fellows pre-selected for the Judges but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the semi-finals.
The audacity and originality of the proposal positively impressed the Judges; targeting young people at an age where they form their good (or bad) ecological habits is certainly a promising effort. However, the Judges felt that the proposal did not convincingly explain how the tax would be raised (it’s difficult to measure use of cycling and walking for instance), how it would be spent to the best possible use, and most importantly how it could be prevented from being wildly unpopular. These aspects aside, the feasibility of the proposal seemed too low, and the costs underestimated. But, again, this seemed like a promising idea and it would be worth refining for future opportunities.
Thanks again for your contribution, and best of luck in participating in future CoLab contests or taking this idea to other avenues!
