The Next Chapter
As a next step, we want to provide a group of students from Fidel Castro Primary School in Katutura with solar lamps that they can take home for learning and doing their homework. We hope this will allow them to become better at school and get good grades. Afterwards we want to begin the workshop that we are planning to do with students to educate them about climate action.
I would definitely recommend to get involved in a project about solar energy, since it seems to be the energy of the future, together with other sustainable sources of energy. In a country like Namibia, sun seems like the obvious choice, but wind electricity may be more effective in other places. Climate change must be stopped, and we cannot do that if we don’t encourage people to live a more sustainable life. In my opinion, climate action is the most urgent of all the development goals, and if you can combine it with another goal that’s even better!
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.
