Our Global Goal

By Maggie, Age 11

The Covid-19 pandemic has been hard on all of us.

My friends and I decided to try to put up a light in the darkness, especially after the marvelous lesson our teacher gave us on Global Goals.

My friends and I decided to try to put up a light in the darkness, especially after the marvelous lesson our teacher gave us on Global Goals. We could not contain our excitement! We immediately began to brainstorm all the ways we could help to solve a Global issue we genuinely cared about: Climate Action. Eventually, we set up a Zoom meeting where we could safely connect and talk about our plans to tackle Climate Change in our own city! We soon settled on doing a park clean up. It took a while to find a date that worked for all of us, but when we did, we were going to save the earth! The clean-up went overwhelmingly well!  We picked up most (if not all) of the trash at the park and were excited by the thought that we could make a difference, even during these hard times.
