Mission Successful: Operation Donation

/
Our project: Operation Donation hopes to pass on the message of the importance of education and to educate the public about why it is most vital for everyone in the world, including those in poverty. We are hoping to be able to help the local community in terms of the issue with poverty by donating useful materials to them, especially during the pandemic. In summary, our project is to raise awareness of the dangers of wasting by kindly asking people to donate used things so those items could be passed on to people who really need them.

ARCHITECTURE WITH PLASTIC?

/
The Trash Zero project aims to develop and guide the current unrecognized issue of plastic waste in Cambodia. As an individual living in Cambodia for around 13 years, it has come to my attention that many of the locals are not aware of how to reduce their uses of plastic in their households, or aware that plastic is not biodegradable, and therefore can harm the natural environment here.

Going Green with Hydroponics

/
In the current climate, there are several issues our team identified and wanted to tackle with our project! Firstly, due to global warming, fresh water is becoming a scarcity and, in our region 70% of the water is used by the agriculture sector (often ineffectively). Furthermore, we noticed that habitats of at-risk wildlife were being destroyed and used for field farming, our region also suffers from air pollution (propelled by the lack of greenery) and, lastly, the agriculture sector produces 20 billion tons of food waste yearly (much still usable), despite thousands of people going hungry.

Creating a clean lifecycle for plastic

/
Plastic pollution has recently come to be one of the most critical complications and a major issue regarding environment cleanliness. When observing our environment, it is even visible to us as individuals how much we are surrounded by the accumulating amount of plastic waste. Be it finding a fish with a bottle cap stuck to its mouth or birds trying to consume plastic, every one of us has experienced first-hand the harm plastic pollution has inflicted on the wildlife.

Ecomoving: Sustainable Movement

/
Ecomoving's team intend to change the way in which pupils access the school - replacing traditional means of transport with more sustainable ones. With this there will be an improvement in traffic at school entrance and exit times, which will result in a reduction in atmospheric pollution.

An eco-friendly plastic

/
The idea of my project arises from the need to reduce pollution because this is one of the main contributors to climate change. My project basically consists of 3 phases. The first is to create eco-bricks with inorganic garbage to build houses or small sofas for people with limited resources.

Life-changing experience

/
Recently I have done my first program called GSL world catalyst @home, due to the fact of the current pandemic situation the session was all done online via zoom at our own place. It was so interesting and inspiring at the same time to join and connect with global citizens around the world. With the same ambitious goal, we soon start our journey on the same boat.

Wenergy

As we all are aware of the fact that sewers constitute a large amount of waste materials, germs, and toxic chemicals which can cause health problems such as hepatitis, cholera, and typhoid in the place where sewage is dumped. It can also contaminate water sources that are used for drinking, bathing etc.
