I’m currently a Year 9 student at GEMS Cambridge International Private School in Sharjah. Over the past two years, I’ve actively participated in the school’s eco-committee, which focuses on education, raising awareness, and inspiring others to embrace sustainability. I’ve taken part in various initiatives, including “Plant a Legacy” and organizing paper drives, among others.
For me, sustainability is synonymous with the responsible management of resources, ensuring that we meet our present needs without disrupting the natural cycle for future generations. I wholeheartedly embrace the quote, “Sustainability is no longer about doing less harm. It’s about doing better,” as it reflects the evolving and more proactive approach needed to tackle environmental issues.
