Change words change world

Stage of Idea planning stage, start-up stage

Explain your idea in details:

Which words do you use in your daily life? You may be using word that contains discrimination without awareness. Now, around the world, many people are suffering from sexism. I think the language we are using unconsciously impact how we think. If we change our words, we can change the way we think and the world. My main goal is to meet gender equality. I will promote my campaign which claims to change words through SNS. In our country, Korea for example government and states hold an gender equal language contest. So, I think we can also do like this, just expend the range to the world. I'll ask people about their language habits and help them make a difference in words. Also, I am going to gather people's ideas so that many people can know and make the world better and equal. The profit from our goods, such as pencil cases and school supplies will be used to support tree planting organizations like Green peace and WeloveU foundation. Later, our group will create our own tree planting organization and act more systematically.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

With this project we can motivate people to use more equal words and think about gender equality. More people will live with listening to respectful words. Also since we plant trees, it will help nature to be healthy. To achieve this we have to promote our project to many people as we can. We have to find appropriate organization to cooperate too. Then, how can we measure our success? I made evaluation criterias for this. This project is aimed at the world. So, i made it my first success to have more than 300 people in the world participate in this project. Next, based on this, the second success is to make it possible to plant 500 trees. My final goal is making our own group which can act for environment. The group that not only acting to plant trees but also to reduce trashes and to protect ocean.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

At first i will promote campaign with SNS such as an Instagram. When many people pay attention and participate to it i will make crowd founding about goods for our next steps. We will make goods as many as people ordered to save the environment. The profits from it will use to help nature. Also if some goods are left, we are going to donate them to children in developing country. As our foundation grows in size, the tree planting campaign will also move to the world. To accomplish this, we need help from international organizations such as UN. In order to cooperate with them, even if the progress of the previous step is slow, we must not give up and try and have clear results.

Your profile

Hello. I am 17 years old and i'm living in korea. Since my school is a foreign language school, i had many chances to talk about international problems. In school, our class searched about UN SDGs and debated how can we solve these problems. From this activity, i realized that there are lots of serious problems around the world now and i have to move for it. I was interested in gender equality and justice, and my friend was interested in protecting environment. So I decided to combine these two things together and make my project.

People often don't notice how words affect the way we perceive things. Many terms, slangs are offensive, even if they are seem to be neutral, nice or even cool. Misogynist and sexist vocabularies are problematic. And we must talk about it, change how we speak about it and what words we use

You have a really interesting idea which deserves much more attention. We would even love to participate somehow in your project and broaden your 'boarders' to Russia where post-Soviet people still allow to call women - cows.

The fact that these words keep our community in the past is crucial and we hope that your idea and motivation will never stop and one day we will live in the world without discrimination

In this case we are faced with a totally social proposal, but no less important for that, we have to give it the visibility and all the value that this deserves. All my support, for a world of equality and for an egalitarian vocabulary

Sometimes we just speak a word that might hurt others
It is a matter of perception
Just think about it
When someone said you somethiing , you felt heavy
But when you use that word, you might not know how they felt
So, intergrating behavorial science with technology is inevitable
Kindly vote for me and my Idea and comment also
Thank you
