We are delighted to share a blog written by Eva Viviana Rodriguez Dueñas, a student at Urbana 54 Jose Maria Luis Mora in Mexico, who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition.
Their project ‘Recycling to Educate’ 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.
Sometimes as a child we think we won’t be heard. But our teachers have taught us the power we have inspiring adults. As soon as we started with our project our friends and other teachers who where not involved at the beginning have been very interested in the project.
We were so lucky to have Ms. Prince to tell us about this opportunity. I am so happy to be part of this project and to take action making a change for our planet. The future is ours and if we don’t start now our planet will get sicker and sicker until there is nothing to do. I will advice all kids not to be shy to speak out. Our age is a number and we can’t imagine the power we have to impact others.
I am excited to the better future we are starting to build now while helping others!
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.
