IEARN: Learning with the World not just about it...
Final Reflection on Local Footprints Making Global Impact
Reflecting on the Local Footprints in Egypt, Taiwan, Canada & Pakistan
Reflecting on the Local Footprints in Egypt, Taiwan, Canada & Pakistan
"While the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the most famous, it's just one of several ocean vortices, or gyres, whose currents pick up marine debris and amass it into giant, nebulous swirls of junk. These garbage patches mostly contain countless plastic specks that slowly crumble without decomposing, but they also lure larger detritus such as bags, bottles, lost fishing nets and shipping containers" (http://www.mnn.com).

As we opened the projects about littering in our partner countries, we were interested in seeing the similarities and differences in our human behaviors and responses to these habits. We were glad to see countries like Canada taking a similar approach to what we do locally. We were equally upset about the loaded trucks not being more conscientious on the road.
We were compelled by the images from Egypt. It made us realize the after effects of the revolution on the community's environment. It also made us appreciative of the sanitation department in our communities. Many students reflected on how necessary of a job it is to our community's overall health and environment.
We found Taiwan's efforts for clean ups similar to ours.
We loved the sign! Especially because we understood
the date at the bottom of the poster :) In addition, their use of the word 'rubbish' was interesting because it isn't part of our vernacular.

Reflecting on the Local Footprints in Egypt, Taiwan, Canada & Pakistan
Pakistan's pictures forced us to consider the reality that we all really are litter bugs and need to continuously monitor our habits, bring awareness to all generations (young and old) and create calls to action on local level in order to have global impact.
Final reflections: our local footprints are entering our oceans. As humans, we are not only negatively impacting our own environment and health but also creating a lasting detrimental impact on the environment of all other animals, especially ocean life.
Thank you so much for giving us a look into your community and your country We have learned so much about our commonalities: not only in our littering actions as humans that result in negative impacts on our environment but also how we can make the difference as a present and future generation. -ELA Class of 2015, NRHS
