Generating promotional materials around biotech and quality of life
A potential tactic to get more attention on Biotech Without Borders while also putting our understanding of science to use for the public good is to create promotional materials that highlight an insight aimed to improve the quality of life for New Yorkers. These materials would be distributed in the physical world, link to our website, and drive traffic to membership and/or programming.
Broadly applicable insights that are supported by scientific literature
Easily understandable by a popular audience
Can direct attention to membership and/or programming
Chirag had many ideas and based spanning biological safety, pet longevity, garden plant culture and DIY. Based on limited feedback he has decided to focus on air and water quality. There is also interest in linking microplastics to health concerns with projects around testing and filtration being suggested as potential matched programming.
The working title for this campaign is "Safe in the City"
