Make A Change

The world is a complicated place; full of challenges and difficulties. We often feel like we are ''trapped'', and that there is no way out.

The MMM Club!?!?

We the Hunger Helpers got an ingenious idea to attain sustainability, we created Make Meals Matter Clubs! Yes, that’s right! We created a student-led, in-school club.

Let's Bring The Change

That Queer Feminist is a youth-led project that aims for a community of people who understands the importance of mental health, provide equal opportunities to the marginalized communities, and create more awareness on domestic violence.

English for Community

We have identified a need for education in our country (Colombia), one that increments the job opportunities as well as changing the job market and lower unemployment. We decided to specialize in the language development of young minds and teach them English.

An introvert leader

Following goals 8, 9, 11, 12, and 13 from the Global Goals, we managed to develop a decent application that serves as a trustworthy symbol for all sustainable retailers and consumers.

No Child Should Ever Go To Bed Hungry!

Hi everyone! My name is Ethan, and I am 12 years old. I selected Goal 2: Zero Hunger among all the other 17 Sustainable Development Goals as my Sustainable Development Goal. The goal of my project is to encourage all children in Hong Kong to pay attention to the impact of food waste on the planet.

Our GSL Journey

It’s been a year since hundreds and millions of young children from all around the world, speaking different languages, inheriting different cultures, all global leaders motivated to bring a change in the world have taken part in this competition.

Mission Successful: Operation Donation

Our project: Operation Donation hopes to pass on the message of the importance of education and to educate the public about why it is most vital for everyone in the world, including those in poverty. We are hoping to be able to help the local community in terms of the issue with poverty by donating useful materials to them, especially during the pandemic. In summary, our project is to raise awareness of the dangers of wasting by kindly asking people to donate used things so those items could be passed on to people who really need them.

ARCHITECTURE WITH PLASTIC?

The Trash Zero project aims to develop and guide the current unrecognized issue of plastic waste in Cambodia. As an individual living in Cambodia for around 13 years, it has come to my attention that many of the locals are not aware of how to reduce their uses of plastic in their households, or aware that plastic is not biodegradable, and therefore can harm the natural environment here.

Going Green with Hydroponics

In the current climate, there are several issues our team identified and wanted to tackle with our project! Firstly, due to global warming, fresh water is becoming a scarcity and, in our region 70% of the water is used by the agriculture sector (often ineffectively). Furthermore, we noticed that habitats of at-risk wildlife were being destroyed and used for field farming, our region also suffers from air pollution (propelled by the lack of greenery) and, lastly, the agriculture sector produces 20 billion tons of food waste yearly (much still usable), despite thousands of people going hungry.

EcoVille; Nurturing Nature for a Better Future

We are EcoVille [pronounced eco-will], a team of budding innovators hailing from Our Own English High School Sharjah, UAE. Our team consists of Humairah, Afsheen, Shreya, Alisha and Suchi. We came together as a team for the GSL Global Goals competition. We work towards a sustainable future and strive to make our products eco-friendly.

Creating a clean lifecycle for plastic

Plastic pollution has recently come to be one of the most critical complications and a major issue regarding environment cleanliness. When observing our environment, it is even visible to us as individuals how much we are surrounded by the accumulating amount of plastic waste. Be it finding a fish with a bottle cap stuck to its mouth or birds trying to consume plastic, every one of us has experienced first-hand the harm plastic pollution has inflicted on the wildlife.
