GLOBAL GOALS BLOGS

We are excited to share the blogs written by students from around the World who are taking part in our GSL Global Goals Competition. Every article tells a story of incredible young people who are creating positive social change in their communities. 

We want all our participants to be inspired by each others journeys, and to feel part of a global network of schools and students who are committed to creating a better world.

Planting with Plastic

As a group, we've seen that there's quite a bit of plastic in Qatar. Research shows that there is 2.5 million tons of municipal waste, 1 million of that being plastic. To deteriorate, it takes a plastic bag 10 - 20 years, a plastic water bottle 450 years, styrofoam cups 50 years and aluminum cans 200 years. All this plastic, with a prolonged duration of time will affect marine life and the environment negatively.

WHO WE ARE

We are just typical 12 year olds 7th graders from Karachi, Pakistan, and our project is most commonly known as, VanishingWorldHunger. Let's move back to the time when we first heard about GSL, we were so much into it that our minds were filled with thoughts related to GSL. When we first found out that we got selected to take part in Global Goals Competition, we were screaming with joy as we've always dreamed of taking part in it! It was the best day for us.

Poverty and how can we prevent it?

There are many poor people suffering from poverty in Bahria Town and we need to reduce that number of people as much as we can! As you know, there are a lot of poor people that need help, so our idea was to develop an institute that gives away healthy food to the people in need and provide them good shelter.

Humming birds (free to bee)

We started the year as the smallest bees in the hive, but just because we were the smallest bees from the hive didn't mean we had small ideas. Our minds were bursting at the seams with ideas but we were too afraid to share them, but when Mrs. Olivier gave us the creative spirit to be free, our ideas came flooding like a tsunami.

Our Illuminate Journey: From Lights to Minds

Illuminate is a project created by 7 students in the Modern Montessori School in Amman, Jordan. We hope to succeed in achieving some of the 17 Global Goals (quality education, good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities and partnerships to achieve the goals). For that reason, this project was created.

Pots of sunshines

Our project is based on planting seeds in pots we painted, that is the easiest way of summarizing it. We will be creating designs that can support awareness for mental health or not and we will be giving it to people who can accept donating to mental health and to who wants to get our pots.

Our First Food Drive

Our first food drive was highly inspirational for us hunger helpers. It was a beautiful experience of feeding the needy, we were so glad that we got to view their expressions, reactions and helpful responses.

Saivors ( STE )

On our project's website we post about the earth how to save it, about plants, and we accept questions about the earth.

Comprometidos con la reducción de emisiones. ¿Cuál es tu papel?

he seriousness of the problem of climate change and the need for the whole centre to be involved in reducing emissions means that the support of the whole educational community is needed.

Eco-Bubble

Hello! We are the group that formed the project Eco-Bubble in Spain, Almería in the school Sek Alborán.

Inspire, educate and make a change!

To summarise our project, what we are doing is making a sea turtle sculpture out of plastic, which will be exhibited in our school entrance, in order to impact and educate the most students, parents, and teachers as possible.
