Going through the first module, and want to raise the point about using shipping containers for homes - which is really more a fad than a practical housing solution. In many cases NEW containers are used rather than used ones, which are often rusted or damaged. I've had first hand experience with an architect friend who built one of the first in the US (featured in AD magazine) - they are also challenging to work with vs. normal building materials such as concrete or wood. Secondly they are not energy efficient - so not really very suitable for hotter climates. I'm not convinced this is a good example of upcycling/reuse, and that there are better examples out there that could be used .

We at, Aabroo Educational Welfare Organization, started our Solid Waste Management &Recycling initiative, in February 2007 with the prime intention to help Earth's Ecology and help environment by promoting Recycling and creating awareness among the students and the general public to segregate their daily domestic waste within their places to reduce the plastic and other hazardous materials from going into landfills. The second intention was to raise funds for our free schools to provide absolutely free education to the poorest of the poor children living in the urban slums lacking all civic amenities with even no hope. Today we collect around 20 tons of recycleable dry solid waste for sending into recycling and secure around Pak Rs. 2.0 m for our educational endeavors providing free education, books and stationay, uniforms and school shoes, midday meal, complete health coverage to 5000 poor children in Punjab (Pakistan). We need technical support, advice and participation for expanding our scope in our activities. Please visit www.aabroo.org

I am complementing the World Bank for touching the most ignored area of the human kingdom. No living being other than humans generates waste on earth that can not be assimilated naturally. I am looking forward to the start of this course.
