Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Young Voices for the Planet is a film series that aims to share the success stories of the youth who are working to limit the negative effects of climate change. The goal is to address communities and society as a whole to make a difference for the planet.
In this video, a group of high school students comes together to work on cleaning the oceans and eliminating the excessive plastic pollutants, especially plastic bags. Plastic bags are not only harming the ocean and its animals, but are also polluting the air through their production. The process uses high amounts of petroleum and energy, which affects global warming.
Watch the short film below, and discover how entrepreneurial thinking played a role in saving the oceans!
