I’ve been doing IB since last 5 years and throughout this journey, the most important thing I’ve learnt is about environmental sustainability. A clean environment is a must for a healthy lifestyle. I feel that nowadays we humans are act very careless and litter garbage around. After the lockdown, I reflected upon all various human actions and it’s impact on the environment and other life forms. Taking a step forward, me and my friends decided to go and clean up the beach in our city. We decided to go there for 2 weekends and clean up as much we can.
Learning outcome 2
The most challenging thing was the situation of covid 19. We were around 7-9 students who chose do the beach cleaning as a service. It was weekend and as we know people like to enjoy their weekend with their family and that is why we had to work in a crowded place with all the safety precautions. We had masks, gloves and sanitizers to protect ourselves from corona. We have cleaned the beach manier times as a part of service but this was first time for all doing this in a situation where there is deadly disease all around us. We were able to manage to work in this situation by following the safety protocols and after this experience we all felt more stronger by working together in this situation and doing something good for the environment.
Learning Outcome 5
Working collaboratively has always been a plus point for me because it helps us interact and also make the work/activity more lively. When people come together, we share different perspectives and ideas to execute the task easily and that’s what happened in this case. We divided ourselves in pair and were scattered around the area and started doing our job, each pair of us collected at least 2 bags of garbage from around the area. Teamwork helped us complete our task easily with inputs from all the students and in the end we all were happy to spend some time together cleaning.
