We are The Current Clarity. A team of Grade 8 students ages 12-14 from Singapore School Manila, based in the Philippines. Our team consists of Yvie, (Leader/Event Planner), Layla (Graphics/Design), Savannah (Social Media/Communication) and Arianna (Research/Documentation). We are a group of friends and schoolmates who joined this year’s competition in order to raise awareness on the importance of our environment, primarily oceans, due to their effects on people and the way we live.
In this year’s competition, we have taken up 5 Sustainable Development Goals:
SDG 6 — Clean Water and Sanitation
SDG 13 — Climate Action
SDG 14 — Life Below Water
SDG 16 — Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
SDG 17 — Partnerships for the Goals
Multiple dangers can occur when water bodies are mismanaged and uncared for. A good example would be the Philippines’ own Pasig River. Biologically, it has been considered dead due to all of the garbage and pollution; several factors such as homelessness and irresponsible waste disposal have contributed to its current state. As the next set of inhabitants on our planet, we aim to help however we can.
The goal of our project is to be able to successfully promote and preserve marine biodiversity! We want to be able to educate people about the issues that our seas and their inhabitants go through, despite the difficulties caused by the current pandemic. Our team wants to show others how they can contribute to the cause and pave them ways to do so.
