GOING MINIMAL

I pledge to adopt minimalism across all areas of my life. It is a step - a mindset - that I will be adopting which would help me take decisions consciously and deliberately to check my consumption behaviour and reduce my carbon footprint.

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.

Monash University Sustainable Development Volunteering Program

Without help, the people, communities and natural environments that are significantly impacted by global challenges struggle to overcome these challenges and experience a sustainable and prosperous future. This One Step has the potential to work towards achieving each one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It consists of creating a sponsored sustainability focused leadership program for emerging leaders at Monash University. Students will be sponsored to lead a project addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Projects could include establishing a system where children and their families in Nepal have access to vaccinations, building appropriate education facilities in Bangladesh, travelling to Kenya to install clean water and sanitation facilities or stopping all single-use plastic consumption in Monash University. In addition, each project would aim to empower locals in each destination by equipping them with the knowledge and resources enabling them to continue sustainable practices in the future. It is the aim that each program will contribute to global sustainability while developing the sustainable leadership of Monash University students.

Market foods

I will influence the people in my house as well as myself to purchase food (fruits/vegetables) from local markets instead of supermarkets. This will allow me to increase the success of local market businesses as well as provide our household with fresh food.

Sharing my meal

It is devastating how much some human beings live without. According to the World Bank, there are at least 1.1 billion people living in extreme poverty, barely able to afford food, clothing, medicine and other basic necessities. Here in Australia, many of us are fortunate enough to afford an excess of these necessities. I never want to take for granted how fortunate I am. Share The Meal is an app created by the UN World Food Programme that offers us an affordable and easy way to feed undernourished children in countries such as Syria, Yemen and Uganda. When I first saw this app I was inspired! What an incredible way to tackle extreme poverty and hunger around the globe! For every meal I enjoy over the next 12 months which was not made with my own two hands, I pledge today to share it with a hungry child.

SUSTAINABLE SCHOOLS

I am currently studying a Masters Degree in Inclusive (and Special) Education, because I believe that the best possible future we can have is on that includes helping everyone develop to their best potential - and that starts in schools! I am also currently looking for volunteer opportunities in the community, to support children and youth with disabilities.
