Tell us about the social impact of your innovation. Please include both numbers and stories as evidence of this impact
Everything is relative and experiences are contrived by methods that bring
the individual to a hands-on, face-to-face experience. Success is a word
that should begin with "failure is never having started and success is
relative to the investment of time, energy and interest. Sustainability is
also relative and has no continuity in human action...passing experiences
that linger a life time are those which are fond to the memory of the
individual. Negative impacts are zero focused...minimised impacts are
The idea or subject matter should be simple and it is the detail that
produces the impact of the class or open air experience..this is should not
be complicated as there is also the intention to derive maximum benefit
through absorption of content by the individual . The approach is made
through a process of adaptation to an audience from a spinal
programme...where there are age differences and language differences...this
adaptability is a pre-requisite of nature and thus it is educatively applied
in the classroom or open air class...and thus to 3rd world children who have
meagre access to IT or even paper/books/pencils.
Problem: Describe the primary problem(s) that your innovation is addressing
Financation for equipment

To open windows on experiences not yet realized or the result of a previous

Enthusiasm is something that often has to be engendered by an honest

Bringing different people together with differing values helps open the
forum of exchange and consequent learning - in this area one is very
succesful and also very creative. Finally the newly found friends enthuse
over their discoveries and or differences but almost entirely in modus
Results: Describe the expected results of these actions over the next three years. Please address each year separately, if possible
In this work one is also involved with an ONG that has environmental issues
involved with volunteers...there is also good 'press' empathy for the work
which alerts people to the issues and creates another level of awareness.
This is in Spanish and English...visitors return to us or make
recommendations. The forum is mobile, transient but interested...awakenings
are effective and well recieved - the benefits of my work for others is that
I am repeatedly asked to participate.
If your innovation seeks to impact public policy, how?
Public policy has already been made – our impact will be for the recipients and their education/pleasure/consciousness.
