My learning diary NAHIARRI

INTRODUCTION
We have taken part on the eTwinning project called “Be the Change, Take the Challenge”. Its objective is to make international connections with peers and experts from all over the world to improve our problem solving skills. In this project, we have learnt to define problems, how to find, evaluate, choose and implement solutions.
We have also taken part in spreading the SDGs, which is a foundation that researches global problems. Different countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all human and these goals are 17 globally expanded problems. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS

Nowadays, environmental problems are a real problem that involves everyone, but nobody wants to do anything because they think the government will deal with it.

On the one hand, some people feel that it is a very difficult thing to tackle alone as an individual. Moreover, they say that there is very little they can really do.

On the other hand, there are very different people that really want to take action to help the environment. What is more, they do all their best to help deal with climate change issues.

In conclusion, I believe that we have to do something to change the world. In my opinion, we should take action immediately to improve this issue. We can change the laws to force people to recycle, ot to waste less water.

LIFE ON LAND

One of the SDGs is Life on Land, and its objectives are to combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation and stop biodiversity loss. In our community, life on lands is another issue, it is a problem that all of us should consider and take action to improve it because there might arise fatal consequences.

Forests cover most of our planet and they sustain us from the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the food we eat. Not only that, they are also habitat for most of the animals, so with deforestation and forest degradation species lose their living place. What it is more, we are changing our ecosystem also and around 1.6 billion people depend on forests for their livelihood. Researchers have found that China has exceeded the established pollution limit. That’s why the inhabitants will probably have lung cancer as well as respiratory problems. If China does not stop polluting, million people will have died by 2030.

Pollution in China

To change this, everyone should help at home doing really easy things like reusing, recycling, consuming only what you need, and being respectful with wildlife. If everyone did it, we would solve many problems. SDGs want to combat desertification for 2030, and besides, they want to conserve forests and other ecosystems, but to achieve it, we need everyone’s help.

To sum up, life on land is a very important issue that if we do not solve it, it will continue affecting the lives of many people. As far as I’m concerned, I will do everything that is in my hands.

GENDER EQUALITY

Nowadays, more protest and complaints have more echo in our society, and that is because there is a globally expanded injustice. Gender inequality it is another big issue that mostly affects women. We are discriminated against for the benefit of men. Moreover, some women are deprived of some rights like access to health, which leads to a higher mortality rate. Furthermore, child marriage affects girls more than boys, and this affects girls’ education because they have to leave school very early.

Firstly, women have to face many injustices like being abused continually both sexually and verbally, they are undervalued and deprived of many opportunities and they are seen as objects. They have to face this problems for the simple fact of being born woman. This is an injustice. All of us should think about our actions and think about the problems that surround usand take part to change it. In addition, in many countries female genital mutilation is still practised and it is an unnatural process that has killed a lot of women. UNICEF estimated in 2016 that 200 million women have undergone the procedures. Apart from that, not going very far, we can find injustices near us as the ‘Pink Tax’ and salary differences.

Another point is that people see as normal all these things, they do not care about this big problem that affects everyone, women and men. Children are taught from childhood what they have to like, and an example is that boys have to like blue and soccer and girls pink and dolls. To start opposing this, we should teach children that they are all equal and that there is not any difference in the genre, color or religion. Changing it, the world would stake out the importance that women have.

To sum up, I believe that governments should take part in this issue establishing differents laws. Besides, people have to try to set a good example for children because they learn all from us. And finally governments must eradicate all sexist advertisement so that children won’t see gender inequality as normal.

CONCLUSION

I have felt very comfortable during this project and from my point of view, I really believe that we should do something to improve our society. I think that SDGs goals have to be known around the world to ensure that everyone is involved in them. Working with these projects really helped me to improve my English and they have made me realize how many injustices there are in the world that should be better known so that everyone can take part in order to improve our society and environment.
