We are delighted to share a blog written by students Youssef Mohammed Magdy Elbanna and Zeyad Mohammed Magdy Elbanna from Victoria College, who are part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2019-20 Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 957 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.
The project is a program that includes several awareness videos and a guide for how to separate waste in the home, and it is an electronic store that has all the products related to the environment and the environment. A volunteer who has been trained by us to nominate you the products and alternatives that you need in your home or business in order to be environmentally friendly and to collect organic and inorganic garbage that can be reused or recycled and used in various industries and get Points that you collected on the program and buy one of the products eco-friendly organic products Available in our market.
This program will contribute greatly to reducing the proportion of air pollution so that it will prevent the miners from taking the garbage they want and burning the rest, which leads to a high percentage of methane in the air and thus this leads to air pollution that the living organisms breathe and the appearance of acid rain and global warming, this will lead to. The program also reduces the pollution rate in the water resulting from throwing waste in it and then leads to contamination of drinking water and the extinction of some marine organisms. This program will also reduce pollution in the soil resulting from burning accumulated waste in roads and public places, which leads to Agricultural land and lack of suitability for agriculture, pollution of underground water and threatening the lives of some organisms and the emergence of odors and of course, distort the view therefore it reduce the proportion of diseases in the air, soil, water; and this will reduce the unemployment rate in the society.
After we got our idea and started to work on it we realized that to make our steps easier while we are working we need a lot of skills, so we are developing our skills and learning a lot about environment so we get an experience in this field. We discovered a lot from ourselves about things we didn’t know that we will overcome a lot of things we discovered that we can do.
We see that our biggest challenge is to apply our idea and to see our app working and a lot of people using it. The hardest challenge we will face is if we succeed how we will keep our succession.
The Next Chapter
We will face many challenges – we need to spread our idea and make a lot of people believe in it so we will have many supportive people with their effort and working together… these people will push us to succeed.
We say to our friends from all around the world that our humanity connects us, living in one world we called it our beloved earth, we are calling you to participate in those similar projects and start thinking about ideas because, all the change that happens in the world always starts from an idea, just an idea that will make a world where the SDGs are achieved.
The 2019-20 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2020. 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.
