Navdeep has developed the elephant app to revolutionise free-cycling at university campuses. The app is currently used by London South Bank University (LSBU) and it reinforces LSBU’s Campus, Curriculum, Community sustainability approach because a) campus waste is reduced, b) the project was undertaken by Navdeep, a student and c) the LSBU community is united through the power of digital technology to tackle the key environmental issue of waste.
Navdeep believes the elephant app is a great way to demonstrate the possibilities of the circular economy – by rescuing items from landfill and keeping items available for use for longer, extending their lives.
The app is also delivering wider student engagement: students and staff meet up on campus to exchange items. We have found that it is helping students (especially international students) meet students from different Schools at University.
