We are delighted to share a blog written by Rouaa Takkoush, a student at Ali Bin Abi Taleb- Al Makassede who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 620 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community.
At first, our group was discussing which topic we should pick to talk about. We realized how marine life is poor in our community. We knew it deserves more recognition as most people don’t even have an idea about it. We thought that as marine education spreads, marine life would improve and maybe get saved.
After our discussion we decided to begin working in order to encourage people to join us. We made an Instagram account and posted a few posts with quotes about marine life. We are planning on some future activities that could possibly help us. Such as giving away stickers about marine life to encourage kids to learn about it. We are also planning to send a survey we’ve made made to different people in order to test their knowledge.
Before we started working on this project, none of us had any basic knowledge about marine biology or aquatic life.
By time we studied and learned many new information about marine biology and aquatic life. We discovered that this topic is underrated and has a lot of undiscovered potential.
The Next Chapter
We hope what’s ahead of us to be a bright future filled with the success of our project.
We recommend this project to all people from our age who feel interest towards the topic of marine life.
We need all the possible support people could provide so we hope our recommendation reaches all people out there.
The 2018-19 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2019. If you belong to one of the 700+ teams of students currently delivering a social action project as part of the competition we would love to hear from you and feature your blog and project photos on our website to inspire others.
