Right around Earth Day this year, Wiser.org launched a sustainability contest to showcase how the community lives Earth Day Every Day. Here are updates on some wonderful entries we’ve received!
First, some great news: we’ve decided to extend the contest deadline to June 5th, World Environment Day. Enter now if you haven’t already done so! Remember, come back and keep voting because voting is open to everyone. There are multiple chances to win!
If this is your first time hearing about the contest, be sure to read about it in this press release.
Here are a few entries we would like to share so far:
Ryan from the U.S. The RCC community garden, which provides an educational space for students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community to learn about and participate in local, organic food production. To enhance the educational aspect, the garden will include a seating area and stage that would function as an outdoor classroom and event space. We also envision the garden to include art projects and signage designed and produced with significant (if not total) student input.
Mahbubur from Bangladesh We are trying to establish a Rural Library in different villages in Bangladesh. Our target readers are rural children emphasizing poorer, dropout and disable. Primarily it would start with different NGO publication viz poster, banner, festoon, booklet, academic & non-academic books etc. We have already established a library at Kustia a rural district in Bangladesh and going to establish another one at the district of Kurigram very soon.
Mohammad Arifur from Bangladesh We some youth started a boat journey to make a sustainable world. The main focus of this journey is to create awareness against all type of environmental consequence. This journey may be act as a trigger to promote and ensure sustainable environment.
Apeetha from India Hafiz wrote this in Shiraz, Persia, around 1500 AD: What’s all this conflict in this lunatic sphere I see? On every horizon there is hatred and fear i see. Everyone tries to turn all their time into a profit; It’s out of control, and each day more severe, I see. . . . . Hafiz is one mouthpiece of many who enable us to confront our own face as a gesture of affection: every day IS Earth Day. Grow Well.
