I pledge to discover and share one at least one new exciting article/fact/news piece a week that highlights a particular sustainability goal. There's so much happening in the world both good and bad and I want to focus on the good. New innovations, initiatives or government action which brings the world one step closer to achieving the SDG’s are meant to be shared. Already participating in many small actions which help reduce waste and electricity I wanted to do something different as my ‘one step.’ I am inspired by what I read, watch and hear and want to do the same for others. Good actions need more recognition! That’s why I want to be a voice that recognises and celebrates progress.

'FRIDGE SURPRISE' MEALS

I will use up all the food in my fridge and pantry before buying more, instead of compulsively ordering uber eats or getting more groceries unnecessarily. This will lead to a reduction in my carbon footprint and overall energy consumption. To aid this, I will do a weekly shop at the markets on Sundays, where I can stock up for the week via a local and sustainable means.

No New Things!

My 'Take One Step' for this year is to try not to buy any new consumer items including clothes, household objects, books or other 'want' things in an effort to reduce my consumer footprint. This means shopping more at op shops and buying second hand. Cheers!

ParkCar Chill

Me and my teammates are currently creating an app helping drivers book and secure the on-street parking spot in advance and settle the payment online. Not only ParkCar Chill helps driver decrease money loss by setting the parking fine alert system, but also contribute to a smarter city by potentially lowering the traffic jam and pollution. And finally, we can help government to save more human cost by hiring less ticket officer.

BRING MORE SOLAR ENERGY

I am now running a solar energy project mainly focusing on solar street light and solar security camera (still in the promotion stage). I find out solar products in Australia are still using old technology and extremely expensive. We are trying to bring a new generation battery to Australia for a more sustainable future. Our solar street light is aiming to match the price of the normal street light. It has an extraordinary 10 years battery life with rapid charging function and can be charged between -30℃ to 65℃ .

INDIA EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Currently in India, communities are still using kerosene lamps. Bring LED lights to communities is more sustainable for the future, allows people to study at night, and travel safely during night time.

For All

As a former Special Education teacher, I observed how I was participating in systems of exclusion in schools and, ultimately, in society. That's why I started studying MEd of Inclusive and Special Education, to learn how to contribute to INCLUSION. It was in this course that I became more aware of different forms of exclusion, and have begun thinking of ways that I can help develop a more inclusive future. Through being more inclusive, we can lift out of poverty those excluded from economic growth and employment, we can improve the emotional health and well-being of those excluded from access to their human rights, we can reduce inequalities between people excluded from opportunities, and ultimately create more developed, safe, and peaceful communities.

Vegetarian Warrior

I'll be committing to a vegetarian plant-based lifestyle. I've been eager to embark on this lifestyle choice for its two-fold efforts. The environmental impact of eating meat is too significant to ignore, with meat production being a significant contributor to greenhouse emissions. Being vegetarian will also preserve habitats and decrease deforestation. The additional benefits of having a healthy lifestyle are an added bonus. I am really excited to start this journey to help the environment and fight for social justice.
