We are delighted to share a blog written by student Tarika Bragadeesh from M.CT.M Chidambaram Chettyar International school, who is 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.
We are team SeaBreeze from grade 6 and we are working towards saving the marine life from all types of pollution, but we are mainly concentrating on plastic. We are also working towards awareness about this topic to everyone around us, as marine life is an important part of our ecosystem. We have loved doing this project till now and aim to do more.till now, we have done a beach cleanup, several planning sessions, and a trip to tree foundation to see the turtles they have saved. We have also given a speech in our school assembly about our team and the things we are working toward.
We have developed our teamwork skills and have learned to accept everyone and work with different people. We have learned that there is much more to ourselves than we know of. Right now, our biggest obstacle is that not many people will really listen to us about this. We are brainstorming ways to fix this problem.
The Next Chapter
We recommend that many people our age to step up and help mother earth with similar project. We plan to go to many organisations and help them by donating some money which we receive from upcoming fundraisers. Lets make this world a better place!
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.
