SDG 4: Quality education

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.

One Care Initiative

On 2016, along with some of my friends, we started a community called ONE CARE INITIATIVE (or Komunitas Satu Peduli in Bahasa Indonesia) as a platform to do activities which has good impact for the society. The reason is simply to show our care about issues that are happening in our society. How we work is simple - the action that we do have to be simple yet making impact to the society. Since then, we have done so much through this platform - from providing assistance to disability community, collaborating with Indonesian NGO to provide sex-ed to school in Jakarta suburban areas. We make those ourselves, we search for the funding ourselves, and we collaborate with local government authority and NGO ourselves. At the moment, we are taking this community action to the next level by attempting to provide adequate education to Indonesian border areas which sometimes overlooked by many people and hence some of these areas were stricken by poverty with little to none education facility. We were hoping that in the future we can help those area by providing necessary education facility which might (at least) supports basic education activities in that said areas. We call this MUTUAL TEACHING Project (Saling Ajar Project - in Bahasa Indonesia). As our first step, in 2018, we manage to survey some border area in Nusa Tenggara Timur Province while at the same time giving them seminars about education, healthcare, and nationalism (the photo is taken on our visit to Belu Village - 2018). We were hoping that this project could be a start to something big and raise more concern for the wellness of people in overlooked areas.

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.

conscious student

I was inspired by Monash's "One Step" Campaign, because it illustrated how we have so many opportunities throughout the day to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Therefore, this is basically my journey. And I will post about choices that I feel are significant to MY LIFE AS A STUDENT and how my current situation presents me with every day choices to live a more sustainable or, as my title suggests, make choices while being conscious of their effects on the world. I am starting with... walking to school or taking the bus from the Bus Loop! (I haven't purchased a bike, as all of my classes are in the evening and I'm not comfortable with biking in the dark) YAY for lower carbon emissions!

VOLUNTEER for education

Education not only improves quality of life but equips more people with the tools to tackle the world's issues! For the rest of the year I will volunteer regularly (once a week/fortnight) with programs which aim to tutor kids with disadvantage or foster an interest in STEM for young people. To start I have signed up to run workshops with Engineers Without Borders.

During the lockdown, I realised the impact that reducing the consumption of meat has in our life. The reduction of our footprint is significant and also, I have learned to cook a lot of vegetarian alternatives.

GENDER EQUALITY IN STEM

By starting an organisation with other uni students called Sisters in Science, I am going to show young girls that they are just as capable of doing science as boys. By running incursions in schools, hopefully young girls will realise their potential and follow careers in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) fields.

narrow social gap

Social gap is becoming wider and wider as economic boost. Mid-class people are likely to take their weath and social status for granted. Sometimes they just forget to help people who need help or only focus on make their own fortune. What I want to do is prompting people to give their hands to someone who really need help, someone who are suffering by writing articles on social media. As for me myself, I want to be as volunteer to help people who can not afford their education, who can not afford even a book at least once by the end of the year.

This is a strong approach, although it is potentially inaccessible for some due to the car-centric infrastructure in place for many regions in urban and suburban environments.

I don't know why this posted here-- This website is wild, it was showing a goal around 6km daily walking goals.
