Banning Straws on Campus
Halifax, Nova Scotia
This project’s initiative aims to eliminate the use of plastic straws at the Dalhousie University bar, The Grawood, while encouraging a reduction of their use campus-wide. We propose a transition period where the bar uses reusable straws instead of plastic before a full ban happens.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots
Do great things in your community.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
