Proposal: MOSSpod: empowering the urban workforce to reduce localised air pollution Contest: Shifting Attitudes and Behaviors Thank you for your contest entry. Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest. We have reviewed your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, have chosen not to advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea.

Thank you, thank you for the amply footnoted proposal. So rare! “Modular Offices for Sustainable Spaces (MOSS), we believe that cities could be so much more: greener, cleaner and more relaxing.” LOVE THIS DESCRIPTION, WHICH EASES THE TRANSITION INSTEAD OF COAXING IT WITH SOMETHING ONEROUS AND PAINFUL. “MOSSpod is an enclosed, two-person workspace, covered in air-purifying moss. The pods are modular, creating the option to combine into a larger workspace.”  Sounds too good to be true! And, it is pricey: 20k Euro per pod. And/or the leasing model. What railway operator will be most likely early adopters? I like the idea of targeting London, which currently has a big PR problem because of air pollution. It should be pretty easy to gauge receptivity from an iconic British brand that’s forward on climate action. And leverage the Mayor’s stated position on reducing pollution there. For instance, Jaguar/LandRover; Bank of England. The app appears to be good. The Climate KIC Accelerator is a smart idea; do you already have interest from them? On investment strategy, you will need a patient and well-heeled investor to take on this project. Who sponsors bike ride shares in London?

The MOSSpod is a fun idea and could be attention-grabbing. It could be more compelling if paired with an NGO campaign to include educational material and use the space as a way to mobilize action as well.
