Global Youth Action- Environmental Sustainability

by Project New Boundaries for Youth


Project New Boundaries for Youth is a non-profit organization and youth initiative to promote education and action in youth globally about environmental issues in their communities so that they can work to bring about positive changes towards a sustainable future for their communities. Annual competitions are held where 1 to 3 high school students team up, research a topic about local environmental problems, write an essay, and implement an action project promoting local sustainability.

Improper waste management has enormous impact on health, safety, economy, and global environment. In urban cities like Bengaluru, India, waste management crisis is reaching a critical point. Bengaluru, a city of 10 million, produces about 4000 tons per day of waste. Nearly a fourth is plastic waste. If public awareness is generated, city's waste can be capped to less than 25 percent of the current quantity. Youth can be empowered to practice and promote the 3Rs-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle locally.


The first step to any change is creating awareness about the issue. This project will promote education and action in youth globally about the pressing issue of proper waste management and environmental sustainability through education and action. Small changes created in everyday life can create a lasting impact on the environment. Annual competitions will ensure that groups of students are inspired to think critically and act responsibly about the issues related to local environment.

Long-Term Impact

I hope to spread this annual event to other cities in India and eventually to other countries and create a domino effect of constructive thinking and action in youth about local environmental issues. I am inspired to promote youth driven community projects with the conviction that it will impact the global community. I value this opportunity as a platform to promote socially responsible leadership in youth across the world. Simple changes in everyday lives can create a more sustainable world.
