Explain your project in details:

Campaign: I had started my own campaign, PEPC Campaign (Papers, Ewastes, Plastics and Cans) to inform the importance of recycling and to put an end to single-use plastics. As an environmentalist and green activist, I strongly believe that we can change our existing practices into green and sustainable solutions using technology. I am collecting papers, electronic wastes, plastics and cans for recycling. As Drop It Youth Ambassador I am raising awareness about single-use plastic pollution and encouraging individuals and organizations to reduce their carbon footprints through simple everyday choices. Purpose: We live on a blue planet, with oceans and seas covering more than 70 per cent of the Earths surface. Oceans feed us, regulate our climate, and generate most of the oxygen we breathe. Oceans are facing threats as a result of human activity. Every year, an estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the worlds oceans. My campaign aims to reduce the carbon footprint. Activities: I raise awareness in my school and community by giving pep talks and presentations. I go in for beach clean-up, desert clean-up campaigns organized by Environment Agency (EAD) and Day4Dubai to keep our environment clean and to emphasize the importance of reducing wastes and follow 3Rs. I am a YOUNG TIMES Panelist and write articles for Young Times Magazine (Khaleej Times) for preserving and protecting the ENVIRONMENT. I innovated a robot, M-Bot Cleaner (Marine Robot Cleaner) to provide vital protection (in a sustainable manner) to the marine habitats as it removes the waste from the surface of the water bodies. The purpose of my project is to preserve our marine environment. I am working towards SDG14 which aims to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Measures to evaluate success: I raise environmental awareness and request my schoolmates and community to take a pledge to refuse single-use plastic cups, plates, spoons, bags and install a water filter. The number of pledges taken in www.dropityouth.org will measure the success of people refusing to use plastics. Achievements: Within a span of 3 months more than 1000 people have taken online pledges.
