International Environment Survey for Students!


Hi all :)

I am 17 years old and I finished school this year :) My ambition is to be an environmental engineer :) Now that I finished school I am looking for institutes that offer such courses so I can join such jobs :)

My entire family has been supportive of my ambition since I told them in 6th grade :) I donate a lot to NGOs, charity, orphanages, refugees etc every year sometimes every month if I can afford :)

In many other social media site I also made an initiative of swapping reused envelopes, planting seeds for a return cover/postcard etc and many of these initiatives worked :)

At my school, I did all my projects with stamps and postcards on saving mother nature :) I ever wrote petitions for the same :)

I dont use leather, plastic , fur or wool materials :) I have a big garden :)

Now, that I am out of school, I think it is time I work on "Conservation of environment" in full swing :)

I dont know many people in this field who can help me so I thought I would be able to find many here who also share the same thought :)

I really like the fact that some countries issue stamp on recycled paper and my state Tamil Nadu banned plastics recently :)

I need thoughts and help on how we can change the world into a much greener, safer and pollution free place :)

If you are a school teacher, my one request to you is if possible can you gather views on how to deal with pollution and all from your students to get a student point of view of pollution and how to deal with it :) And you all and other postcrossers are also welcome to throw a light on this topic and let me know more :)

Hello, Deepu_Sudhan!

Your ideas and ambitions sound awesome! I'm so glad you posted to this forum! Welcome!

The school year in the USA is coming to a close at the moment, so it may be hard working with teachers here. Are you looking for just opinions? Do you have any specific questions you'd like to ask? If you could put together maybe three or four questions for me I could send them out to my students via a survey and give you the results. Although I teach Spanish, would that possibly help you to see what students ages 11-14 think?

Good luck!

Sure, I will do so when I am free :) Currently I am writing college entrance exams :) I will be done with all of that by next week :)

Thanks volvomom for the idea, otherwise survey would never have struck me :)

Thanks volvomom. I received your u2us but my u2us are overflowing :(. I will share the results with all of you. I am planning to do a small analysis based on the answers will share that too :). You can share with every other teacher you know and the whole school :) More the answers, more we would be able to analyse ;)

Thanks for your help :)

I had my students do this after an exam. :) The department chair in my school will also be spreading the word. Let me see if I can publish it further around the world via my Facebook page.
