World Environment Day 2021

DATE: 21 June 2021

PLACE: YouTube

COMMITTEE: Environmental Rights Committee

Originally planned for 5 June, the World Environment Day, this YouTube broadcast had to be delayed to 21 June due to technical issues. Despite late, we had an amazing YouTube live event with scientist Tierra Curry and climate activist Rob Callender to celebrate World Environment Day and once again reminded each other of the importance of our environment and treating it well. The particular theme of this broadcast was what the youth could do to spread awareness on  the current climate crisis.

The program can be watched at our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGpqWxy1mnE&t=11s

Neighbourhood Clean Up Day

DATE: 4 April 2021

PLACE: Parks and streets

COMMITTEE: Environmental Rights Committee

The Neighbourhood Cleanup Day is part of the Restore Our Earth campaign run within the framework of the Earth Day 2021.  With this project we aimed to show that the solution to the global environmental crisis starts by taking small and localised actions that have an impact on the environment. Our small step was plogging; a new trend where picking up trash is combined with jogging.

We wanted to illustrate that individuals do not have to be environmentalists, activists or experts to make a difference for the future of our planet. We asked our volunteers to clean their streets, beaches, rivers, forests, parks and neighbourhoods.
