Action

Guest Speaker – d’Arcy Lunn

YOU’RE NOT STUCK IN TRAFFIC – YOU ARE THE TRAFFIC

On Monday morning this week, we had guest speaker d’Arcy Lunn present about Teaspoons of Change and taking action (connected to their issues for the PYP Exhibition).

Some students were fortunate enough to speak with him in small groups to connect to their inquiries and to gain insight and ideas about purposeful and achievable action.

Some of the questions he presented included:

What is a global citizen? – Someone that makes a difference, someone who is responsible for their actions

Are you a global citizen? – Who I am – what I feel see think and do! The way I think. The actions I take

Can everyone be a global citizen? What can I do as a global citizen?

  • Create action for our community
  • Take small actions to achieve big goals
  1. Listen and learn
  2. Good people with good ideas doing good things
  3. Be a bridge – share with other and connect them to it

What are the things we can do to be a good global citizen? 

  • Use what you like (connected to) to take action
  • Create ideas for other people
  • Start with yourself and your family
  • Make an impact on the local community
  • Don’t only think up idea but put them into action to achieve change

What else can we do? The many little things we do allow are teaspoons or change that are easy to do more often such as turning off lights, not just recycling but reducing and reusing, creating a sharing economy e.g. toy libraries, book swaps, carrying your own chopsticks and plastic bags. Simple and easy but effective!

How we are connected to other things? If we are doing good things for the environment we impact in people

Further considerations…

 

How do we create big change?

Are you (and your action) help heavy and harm light?
