The Rubbish Run

Ballarat Social Innovators 2023

June 2023

By Josh, Beau & Mason

Imagine if we combined the genius of Pokemon Go, with cleaning up our environment!

Meet ‘The Rubbish Run’.

This team wants to promote care for both natural spaces in their community, whilst also getting young people active. 

This big idea is an app that incentivise people to clean up the environment by providing challenges and rewards for collecting rubbish.

To trial this idea, the team will host a rubbish clean up competition with the year 9 students at their school. At the end of the term, the house that collects the most rubbish will enjoy a pizza lunch!
