Hello There, Well IBM has always been credited with the history of starting some thing big and new which later on is readily accepted by the society as a part and parcel of the society. Therefore i have couple of ideas to start with:
1. I think IBM should start with the idea of promoting all its employess to come to office using their bicycles for 1 day (may be once every month) so that it creates a sense of healthy living in their minds and in turn saves fuel as well. This should be done only by employees who’s home and office distance fall in the periphery of 5 km. And to credit those employess they should be extended with some benefits so that this activity is given its due deligence and is followed with sincerity.
2. Like the NSR concept there should be another autonomous body be created called SCP (Smarter City People) and the people who get themselves registered in this can have some priviliged rights with them like extra discounts on buying general grocery items and not having to stand in the queues while submissions of electricity bills etc….. Now the main idea to have a forum like this (SCP) is that it will have a common pool of people who have the common interest in making the city pollution free and in turn making the city clean and green, by pooling their vehicles with other registered SCP’s so that when they pool their vehicles with the stranger there is one thing common to both of them and that is they both are SCP,s and this will in turn create a sense of security among the other members. And to keep this as an ongoing activity there should be renewal of membership attached to it so that the members details are captured and updated annually, making them eligible for the other benefits going around their city.
3.Water reservation : There should be a separate waste drainage for the solid waste and there should be a separate waste drain for the kitchen waste so that some of the water can be used for some other purposes for eg cleaning of outer periphery area of the house.
