Hello again Anil, You have several ideas for the climate-lab I see! Thanks for this proposal on waste management practices. I think your "pitch" for this piece could be strengthened, as it is not immediately clear what the proposal is about. My other piece of feedback is about word choice. Understanding that the intent behind your proposal is global in scope, and that word choices may hold different meanings in different regions and cultural contexts, I would caution that, at least in the United States, a campaign around "segregation" would take on a very different (and negative) meaning, related to the history of slavery and racial segregation in that country. In the U.S., it would be unlikely for people to immediately connect the concept of "segregation" with a waste management issue, which I understand is the context in which you meant it. This word, of course, may not hold such a connotation in other cultural contexts, so may not be as relevant to other regions of the world. Thanks once again for your contributions.

Hi Anil, You have picked one of the major challenge because of which waste management is and has potential to be bigger issue for cities. What I would like to see is how corporate, Campaigner, and say NGOs will function to make this as bigger project. You could also look to have innovative demo solutions that can be used to convince community on how easy is to segregate waste. All the best for the contest. Regards, Vishal

Hi Jennifer, Many thanks for your kind feedback. You are correct. Have added another proposal with the word WASTE MANAGEMENT towards this sensitivity. Both can be used based on region. Thanks again & warm regards, Anil
