My idea is to create a community of women working on projects related to the environment and sustainability. The projects can be of many and different kind, i.e making organic soap, creating software that helps reducing electricity consumption, vegan recipes, reducing plastics in schools. This project aims to help women who are planning to start a business and need a space to create without committing to spending money on expensive shared office space, allowing them to have an office /address and have a space to work and have meetings. This project will also help young women to gain skills and knowledge as the members of the collective will provide workshops and mentorship. The members will be able to discuss amongst each other and collaborate. They will be part of a project that will help the women of the community finding inspiration and learning new skills. Regular meetings will be held where inspirational speakers will provide their own story to success.

Why it's a great idea:
This project is a great idea to help women starting businesses that are related to sustainability and the environment. Usually, when starting a business, it is very difficult to find an office or studio that is cheap and that can offer a nice space. Also, most of the time, to be able to create and focus you need a quiet and relaxed space. This project would combine the two points and would provide a comfortable and friendly space payable by the hour instead of committing for the whole month. It will create a community of women with different ideas and projects but with the same goal. Help each other and the community.
