Action plan – Jasmine P

For my action, I have decided to focus on climate change. I chose climate change because it is a problem that affects everyone, and it is a really urgent matter. In order to make sure I had a proper understanding of the effects of climate change, I did a little bit of research. I have included some Bill Nye videos because, first of all, who doesn’t love Bill Nye, and second, in order to come up with solutions you need to understand the problem.

The earth is getting hotter and hotter very quickly, and we need to try and stop it! I strongly believe that if everyone changes their habits and lifestyle just a little bit, we can make a big impact. My plan is to come up with one change a week that I can implement in my day to day life, in order to help the environment.

I will post everything I do on an Instagram account I created called @tinylittlechange. I think it’s really important to share what I am doing, so other people can become inspired and implement these ideas into their daily lives as well.

Sorry for the short post! My project plan is pretty straight forward. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

  1. Hi Jasmine,
    I agree with Shieva, I think it will be good to have other ways of following you. I also think that it would be good to share what you have learned about climate change. Maybe each time you could post some learning that you have done around the topic; there is a lot to learn. Then you could propose a change that you’re going to make and maybe you could encourage others to join you. You could put up posters or announcements etc. Then, you could try to figure out how much fuel you are actually saving with your action. This would be a great combination of research and action. If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to ask.

  2. Hey, Jasmine!

    I agree that climate change is a very important topic; especially now because as you mentioned, the earth is getting hotter and hotter very quickly. I like that you plan to implement small changes into yours and others lives because sometimes when we try and make a big change to fix everything it doesn’t end well. What I mean is that those massive attempts, even if they do end up succeeding, will quickly be reverted because people did not habitually incorporate those changes into their lives.

    The only thing I would change would be the method of spreading your information. Sometimes only using instagram isn’t the best because it won’t reach a variety of people because your account won’t be featured. True that it will reach a group of people but I think that may not be enough. If you have a really good way to publicize on instagram then I think it would be sufficient but since we are not famous and don’t have a big following, multiple ways of spreading the word are better.

    You can try different platforms like twitter or youtube. Maybe try setting up a meeting and talking to people that are interested.

    I look forward to seeing where your project goes!
