For a better world

A Peacemaking Project by Emma A.

What is the injustice we are solving?

We will try to reduce the pollution of the world through social media and different kind of activities, that will be trilingual for easier access. We want to increase awareness of the problem of climate change and pollution.

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of Climate change
we will address Everyone
by Increasing awareness through social media

Our Updates:

Social Media

Emma A. 5 April 2018 18:46 We want to make people understand that the environment is very important for the future of humanity. 

We have an Instagram account destined to increase awareness in the subject. 

The account is : for_a_better_world0

Contest

Emma A. 6 April 2018 15:59 In our Instagram account : @for_a_better_world0 , we offered a contest. The participant has to dm us or send us a video explaining what the environment means to them and what they do or want to do to protect it. We will then choose three winners and give them a shirt where we’ll print planet earth and the name of our project. 

Our objective is to see what other people think. We want to look at this problem from different perspectives. Hearing other people’s point of view and ideas can help us improve so we can solve more efficiently this problem.

Hi Emma. Thanks for sharing the compassionate insight! My understanding is that you want to solve the pollution issue, right? Is your community facing this issue? please make sure to re-write your compassionate insight and make it as clear as you can, so that other Peace First members would understand it better! You can use the compassionate tool here: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/understand-4-compassionate-insight

Also, You can use the problem and solution tree to discover the root causes and consequences of your chosen issue and it will guide you to more solutions. Here is the tool on how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/understand-2-problem-and-solution-trees

You would need to get started now so you can apply for a mini-grant. Thanks again for sharing your project with Peace First members, and we are looking forward to your next steps of the project!

Please let us know if you need any help with this!

Emma! Any updates on your project, please? As part of the process of completing peacemaking projects, Peace First staff give formal feedback on important steps of the project. One of those steps is the compassionate insight.

The issue that you are trying to solve is pollution, right? I would encourage you to write your compassionate insight so that other Peace First members would understand the issue.

We would encourage everyone who is at this stage of their project to work towards deepening their understanding of the issue/injustice they are focusing on. It would be great to talk to other people in your community and try to understand their perspective of it or other people who are trying to solve the same justice or/and people who are already working to solve this injustice.

Something that would be helpful to craft/discover the root causes and consequences of your chosen injustice are to use the problem and solution tree to discover the root causes and it will guide you to more solution. Here are some resources on how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/understand-through-compassion

We would love to help you to bring your project to reality. Please let us know how can we help.
