FOOD FROM THE SOURCE

Buying vegetables from the farmers market as opposed to supermarkets supports local farmers and reduces food waste #produceequality - our broccoli was considered too small for supermarkets, but that’s fine because it’s going to be great in our pesto pasta! Bonus is it’s package free, working towards a plastic free house supporting local businesses.

Inequality in Tourism

On social media I will share information and articles about how tourism can contribute to sustainable communities and that do not exploit vulnerable people, particularly women and girls. I will encourage others to make responsible travel choices as well as ensure that I am making ethical travel choices.

DIVEST FROM UNETHICAL INDUSTRIES

It is important to me that I stop supporting unethical industries (such as fossil fuels and tobacco) with my superannuation and bank accounts. I will research my best options, divest my funds, and then make sure to discuss my decisions with my friends and family to encourage them to make the switch too.

start a scholarship fund

With being privileged to have access to so many resources, I want to connect with people, and start a scholarship fund which enables students to get higher education or even start a sustainable movement within their home country. I hope I can act as the link and make a difference even in one person's life.

Support organic farmers

I buy organic whenever I can because organic food is better for the environment in terms of it being produced with no pesticides.

Take public Transport to UNi

I am going to continue taking the train and bus to get to university. Not only can I relax on the commute, but taking public transport also contributes to the reducing emissions. Plus, you can catch up with your friends on the way!

Taking an even bigger step!

I have been accepted into the 40K Globe foundation for a summer internship working in rural India! I am so excited I can get out there and help make a positive change in the energy and water sectors of such a great social business, creating clean renewable energy access to those in India that don't have power and helping make clean water more accessable. I am very excited and nervous for the culture shock I know I will get, but hopefully it will only push me to continue in working towards creating a more positive and sustainable world!
