Gold Coast Social Innovators 2022

Transport is Australia’s second largest source of greenhouse gases. It is time to change the way we move, it is time to Paint the Future Green. This idea tackles the issue of transport’s impact on the environment by coming up with an innovative way to power a subway system using waste water and sewrage. It will be a sustainable and accessible way to get from point A to point B.

To trial this idea, the team will run a fundraising event which will fund the creation of the subway. It will involve a paint-by-numbers style mural where attendees will purchase a square to paint. The mural will be developed in collaboration with a local artist and it will be an image of the subway system.
