Business Ideas

Group E first idea(s) =

  • As a group, please write 2-3 sentences about your common idea

Our idea is to chanelise the rural women's time, skills and interest for the cultural and environmental education of urban school kids. For our case study there is a proximity between the rural settlements and some urban schools. There is an increased awareness amongst the parents about the differences in socio-economic-environmental values of rural and urban demographic. We can see a entrepreneurial potential in this too.

Tarmo Pilving - Own (local) idea

  • Please write 1-2 sentences about an idea you have for your own context. You will elaborate on this a bit further at the end of the seminar (1 page reflection)

Tarmo's idea. My idea is to create rural tourism company that offers accommodation and activities in real rural households and activities with local people. No hotels and trained guides just real rural environment. Best place in Estonia for this kind of company is Kihnu island and main target group is urban people. Similar to Village Life in Romania.

Corina Neuwald - Own (local) idea

  • Built a vertical farm or urban farm near the city. 1 or 2 professionals will work there but people from the city (school classes, student, families, individuals,...everyone) can come and help there to grow food. For this non paid work the volunteers will reicive knowledge about nature/agriculture and some food.The rest of the food will be sold. My challenge water saving I will achieve by vertical farming. This system has many advantages: all-season farming --> productivity increase; closed water circuit --> water consumption decreases, less pesticide and fertilizer use; and many more....

Damayanti Piñón- Own (local) idea

  • My idea is to connect children with learning disabilities and nature, through workshops outside where they can learn to protect and conserve nature. And at the same time develop skills to work on and have a better understanding of their surroundings; using everything nature can offer.
