Since Science 10 when I began my inquiry into single use plastics’ and their effects on our environment, there couldn’t have possibly been more that I could have learned.
This project linked my interests of media arts and the outdoors to something bigger. I first developed an informative website to try and send the message that plastics aren’t the best choice we have, aimed at Riverside students.
Since then, I joined the MVST circle in August and I have been a part of the inquiry group Healthy Oceans, researching intriguing topics covering disruption, pollution, self consciousness, societal habits and environmental impacts of plastic usage and it’s role in our local communities.
After attending several Leadership Clinics hosted my Metro Vancouver, (the host of this course), we were then assigned to design our own day. This began as an imaginary day, something that would never exist outside of our computers – until we got notice that funding had come in for our clinic proposals to come to life. Since then, our group of other youth from across Metro Vancouver, David, Josephine, Joy and Gerric, have all worked together to design our proposal to the best it could be.
Our final product was one that represented our interests, questions, passions and knowledge through a leadership clinic.
