What is the problem?
Godfrey sees in his surroundings, for example on the beach, on the street where he lives and in schoolyards, a lot of rubbish lying around. People do not know what to do with rubbish; recycling is hardly ever done. Godfrey thinks that many people do not know exactly what they should do with their rubbish. That’s why he wants to take action!
What is Godfrey’s solution?
Godfrey would like to inform his community about the environment and its preservation. In this way people will be more aware of their surroundings and maybe even pick up the rubbish lying around. To get people to be more aware, he wants to plant 50 trees with a group of people, because this will contribute to the preservation of nature and the improvement of the climate. When planting the trees he wants tell participants the importance of this action.
He also wants to show how to recycle and re-use plastic by making things for the home, for example.
Citizens can make a difference in the preservation of the environment by taking good care of it. Godfrey wants to raise awareness by giving information and taking immediate action,
What is the goal?
Godfrey’s goal is to see a difference in his surroundings, that people are responsible for their rubbish and that the streets are no longer filthy. He wants to reach out to at least 100 people with his project.
How will Godfrey work?
Godfrey will set up a team who will work with him on his project. He sees this as the biggest challenge in his project. After his project, he will look after and care for the young trees, which will be planted during his project.
