I stay at the Ashirwad palace, and over there every independence day there is a marathon organized. I have been living there for a long time however but never participated even once. In the year 2018, I decided to take part in it for a good cause, spreading awareness regarding the depleting resources for future use and why we should conserve it in order to survive. My friends and I made posters to make it even more significant.
L3- initiate and plan a CAS experience
Every year Ashirwad committee organizes marathon but this time I wanted to spread awareness, and make it worthwhile. I initiated the plan and asked some of my friends to participate in the event. We planned to make posters and take it with us in the marathon.
L4-commitment to and perseverance,
I am not good at making artwork, hence it took time for me to create artwork and I had to go to my friend’s house many times to make posters.
L5-. Demonstrate the skills and benefits of working collaboratively,
My teammate had good artwork skills, which helped us making posters which were attractive. The work us equally divided which made the process much faster and left a greater impact on the audience. It was more significant with a team working upon it.
L6-engagement with issues of global significance,
Nowadays the whole world is facing issues related to water, water is a scarce resource and if not taken care of, the future generations will face problems and it will not be possible to survive without it. In hope of a sustainable future, we need to save resources. I want to contribute to this sustainable future.
L7-Recognize and consider the ethics of choices and actions
Before saying anything to someone else we first I need to follow it. So I cut the usage of water significantly. I like having long hot baths, but in order to save water I started taking bath in cold water, so I took a shower for less than 5 minutes after that.
