How I change Cambodia
There are about 10 million plastic bags are being used in Phnom Penh, so what about if we think of the hold country, It a lot. From what I have learned is plastic is really useful for our daily life. Example if I ask 100 people in Cambodia I believe that nearly all of them said that plastic is useful for them.
Did you think about the effect? It really affects our planet events to humans too. Independent.co said that It really effects to our marine life because for Example: if you throw a plastic bags into an ocean fish or some animal gonna come and eat it and it’s gonna cost a really big problem.
My team is learning how to stop people to not using the plastic bag but it does not really work so then we come up with an idea to go to different provinces to present to a village and also to a village chief. After 1 month later I hear that province is a less plastic bag, we were really happy to hear that! Let me tell you what we have presented to the villagers, we didn’t tell them to stop using plastic but we tell them to recycle plastic because ask you know most of the villager, in one day they use lots of plastic bags so we tell them to recycle plastic for example if today they got 2 plastic bags the next day they gonna use that plastic bag again, they can change the plastic bag every 3 or 4 days so that it’s gonna less plastic in the village. We also made a video to encourage people to know more about the plastic bag.
Another exploration we did to change Cambodia is engineering because as you know in Cambodia there a problem that the kid in Cambodia in some provinces they didn’t really know about engineering. We create this exploration because we want to encourage the kids in Cambodia to learn about this stem project.
In this exploration we have divided the students into 3 groups to do a different project after 3 weeks we went to a school to tell the student about what we are doing and most of them are really confused on our project but after 1 hour later. They understand what we are doing and they look so passionate on the project that we tell them to do. The end of our project we call 5 to 6 students to tell us what is passionate about what they are doing today and how they feel and we also got a really great reply from them. That is it for this exploration, so let’s go to another exploration that can help to change Cambodia.
In this exploration is mostly about nature, It is Ecotourism. We have two round for this exploration, I join this exploration in round two and I didn’t understand anything about Ecotourism. Ecotourism is a form of tourism involving visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, intended as a low-impact and often small scale alternative to standard commercial mass tourism (A connection with nature and community).
After 2 weeks later we have been to chombok that located in Kampong speu province. We have been there to see the example of an Ecotourism there. 4 week later we have been to Preah Vihear province choam pen community. On the first day that we were there, we ride a hand tractor to get into a forest. We learn so many things from our guide and one more what we have seen so far is we can create an Ecotourism there. To do this our team working really hard together to make this Ecotourism we have met with different people in the community especially with a district garment in that community. Most of the people in the community they really surprise with our project and they want this project to have. But we didn’t promise to them yet, We don’t if this project going to work or not but if it works the community going to be developed. From what I have said that I also want this exploration to get up so I’m going to try my best because most of the people in the community they really want this exploration to be work. That is it I don’t have anything to talk but I believe that these three projects going to help to change Cambodia in one day.
