The Sustainable Development Goal I have selected is number 14 – Life Below Water.

I chose this goal, as this is one our school as a community have been working on. Our Green School Committee, along with two different classes made two trips to the beach to help with a clean up organsied by Flossie and the Beach Cleaners. The amount of rubbish that collected was both disturbing and brilliant. We later found out, several of the children encouraged their family members to join them on different weekends after this, to help make a difference by cleaning up the beaches. This is an initiative, we have said we would like to be a part of each year.

The SDG 14 says
By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution

This date is unfortunately very close and the impact made isn’t as significant as I think people would hope. We will continue to create awareness and contribute as much as we can to achieving this goal.
We have two local parks and do a clean up day twice a year with the whole school. Picker pals is a great initiative to encourage this.
