This project is inspired by The Poverty Spotlight created by El Fundación Paraguaya, which allows its users to evaluate themselves in terms of their socio-economic status, and provide them with tools and tips to improve it. We have adapted that idea into an application which will allow users to evaluate their sustainability and learn how to be more sustainable. The Poverty Spotlight was designed with the impoverished citizens of Paraguay in mind; our project however, will initially focus on students in the Worcester area with the potential to expand to larger audiences. We administered a sample survey to WPI students and other locals in order to ensure the quality and relevance of the questions asked.
