The last and final workshop we did was ‘The action plan’. We were asked to make links between the goals and what we’ve accomplished so far at the Student Summit. We also thought about how the goals are important to our own communities and what measures we can take to improve the current situation.
I thought this was the perfect way to end the day: making links, thinking about what we’ve done during this trip, and giving back to society.
Students: you might not be able to drive a car or vote for your government yet, but you can surely make an impact on this planet and leave a beautiful mark.
So, wear your detective glasses and look for opportunities. Hint: they are everywhere!
