SDG 10: Reduce inequalities

Toward Inclusivity

I am pledging to learn basic level Auslan within one year in order to take a step toward a more inclusive world for the Deaf. Although myself alone being able to communicate through Auslan will not achieve the SDGs I have highlighted, it is my hope that this is just the first step, and I can soon aim to educate individuals and organisations to advocate for a welcoming and inclusive society for those who use Auslan to communicate. In an ideal world, such a movement would reduce inequalities in society (often, the ability to consume or easily convey information), provide wider employment for Deaf Australians, and thereby result in a more inclusive community overall.

Invest in Girls

Although society has grown from its patriarchal past, we still have a long way to go. The status of women and the inequalities faced by a female who occupies this world still exists in various forms. In a world that does not present an equal amount of opportunities for male and female to coexist, I pledge to recognise and alter the different ways in which we can restore gender equality and educate generations to come.

Ethical consumption

Choose sustainably produced garments. Purchase organic, fair trade cotton. Don't purchase cheap garments which exploit sweatshops in developing countries. Consider intragenerational equity.

12 litres shower

I discovered with my little son (15 months old) that we just need 12 litres of water, one bucket and a small toy "duck" to create a wonderful moment of our shower time. At the end we are clean, we'll save a lot of water at year!!!

No more PALM OIL products

Sustainability and social justice play a huge role in my life from day to day. With some thought, I have identified a giant gap. I have been eating a vegan diet for approximately 8 years, but in order to go completely cruelty free and ethical, it's time for me to get serious about comprehensively responsible consumption. I pledge to avoid the purchase of any products containing palm oil (linked to deforestation, climate change, habitat degradation, animal abuse and indigenous rights abuses). I intend to make this a permanent change. Looking forward to the adjustment!

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!

support social equality

Given the social inequalities that continue to persist in society, I'd like to make a pledge and continue to take action against social inequality, whether it be famine, sexism, racism.

I do give a crap

I am determined to use toilet paper that is more than just comfortable. For the next 5 weeks (and hopefully forever after) I will use WHO GIVES A CRAP toilet paper. This toilet paper is not only made with environmentally friendly materials, it also contributes to a more just and healthy society as WHO GIVES A CRAP donates 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need.
