Being part of such a prestigious event and getting the opportunity to participate in an event at the international stage and present our design was a good experience. Of course the Grand prize money was tempting.

It has made me aware that there is a lot of scope for ‘change’ in India. It was good to get the judges’ insights. It made me realise that we can all contribute in our own way to bring about change.

Interactive Playgrounds

Public places are meant for people to meet, exchange ideas and create. Interactive playgrounds encourage people to participate and contribute to power generation. This is done through exercise which makes the outdoors more inclusive and interactive. Facilitate place-making in public parks and playgrounds to energize residential neighbourhoods. With ideas such as a stationary peddling machine which can power lamp posts, an interactive playground can help generate energy while helping patrons become healthier. Other ideas include street furniture which can also be used as fitness equipment and solar panels as alternate energy sources for the lamp posts.
