Hi team, thanks for all the info. It sounds like you have a really solid idea for your proposal. One thing to be sure of is clearly identifying a current issue within today's sustainability context that your plan aims to resolve and how. You may have done this but just make sure it is highlighted concisely in your proposal. The plan for startup and ramp up is good. These things don't transform over night and your scaling that you explained makes a lot of sense. I would be confident that companies will want to invest in this initiative. Involvement (both direct and indirect) in sustainability initiatives is becoming a large factor in swaying potential investors in companies and this would be a clear indicator of contributing to sustainability. Obviously there are a lot of schools however so a lot of money needed in total! You've answered my question well regarding partnerships. Logistics, geography all come into it. International companies as well as local I think are just as feasible given the world's connectivity. In terms of detail and structure, you do need to clearly justify your reasonings and the concept. Therefore it needs to be clear how the concept would be implemented both in its infancy and development. Communication of that overall concept is key. You don't need exhaustive detail for it to be understood. Have you discussed or shared ideas with other teams? Collaboration both as a team and between other teams is a necessary building block to perfecting your proposal. I hope that those notes help. Best of luck with your final proposal. You have a great idea and I think it is quite different to a lot of the other teams who have a lot of similarities so you have a good chance to stand out. Remember with technical writing in engineering you need to be concise and clear when presenting your ideas. Whilst this project isn't technical as such it still needs that refined finish. Good luck! Oli
