My idea is to take a look at the negative things happening in the news once a week, and then decide to take specific action to counteract the negativity and help those affected. Examples: >If the main headlines revolved around hate crimes, we could all post messages on social media to spread love instead of hate, as well as donating to any relevant human rights charities. >If it was bullying, we could all do a Random Act of Kindness for a stranger, and pledge to be kind and stand up against harassment whenever we see it. >If it was cruelty against domestic animals, we could all volunteer at, donate to, and/or publicly promote local animal rescues. >If it was wild animal endangerment or other forms of environmental destruction, we could do an activity such as picking up litter, as well as donating to environmental charities and taking pledges to reduce our carbon footprint as much as practical and possible. (Even though the latter would be a more long-term thing, we could still check up on progress weekly.) >And finally, if it was something to do with negative or harmful laws, we could call or email our state representative. This is not a complete list, of course, because we never know what will happen, but I hope it is enough to get the idea across. If all goes well, it would be a group or club at my high school. Anyone involved with the school would be welcomed, whether students, teachers, administrators, or even parents, as long as the admins would allow that. My school is very small due to being a private school, but I think we could still make a difference, no matter how small we start out. It has been said that the best way to counteract all the depressing events is to do *something*. Even it just helps one person, or one animal, or one patch of wilderness, it's still better than nothing, and even if it's not the entire planet, it can be a world of meaning to that one individual. Be kind! Sincerely, Elizabeth.

With a uniting of animal rescue groups/organizations and children, it will promote leadership in children who will in turn bring lemonade stands, gofundme's, and school collections to their neighborhoods and communities. Children (with the help of adults) are fully capable of planning with their school principals and organizing friends and classmates to take action!!! Research local rescues or national organizations whose cause you believe in, tell them you'd like to help by organizing a fundraiser...and take action! Then you can start recruiting friends and classmates to help you!! Create posters after school or at home, plan your event, and watch it take off.

Interested parents and children will work with school principals to organize in kind collections for animal rescue organizations of their choice. It will be organized and run by the children: creating posters, communicating with rescue organization staff, promotion, collecting and counting items, etc.

I want to make people more aware of the cruelty of the still-growing wildlife trade, especially the bird trade in Indonesia. The bird trade along with the destruction of natural habitats have brought many birds in Indonesia to the brink of extinction.  Java is currently the center of Indonesia's illegal bird trade. From all parts of Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries bird species are smuggled in order to satisfy the desire for exoticism, entertainment, representation and status. Birds are not treated as living sentient beings, but as consumer products and property.

We want to create awareness for birds as living beings and important part of our ecosystems. We want to make graffitis, paintings, comics and performances with the message of saving these unique creatures from extinction and bring their voices back to nature. We would like to offer educational programs and bird watching trips for students and adults. We want to make bird watching public as a different way to deal with birds. We want to do research on real and online markets for illegal bird trade as there are many birds are illgally traded openly. And we want to connect with organisations that protect birds and animals like AnimalFriendsJogja, FLIGHT, BKSDA and BURUNG NUSANTARA.

To raise the public's attention we want to make graffiti, paintings, exhibitions, performances and T-shirts. For students I would like to offer bird watching trips and educational programs. We would like to discuss and realize a sustainable project together with one community and find out how bird watching could be part of it. We will also do research online and real bird markets since their is a huge hype in Java for birds now especially rare and endangered ones are oppenly sold. As birdwatching is an important part, we will also go to some still conserved places to count and determine the bird species. We will connect with other birdwatchers, bird protecting communities like FLIGHT , BKSDA, AnimalFriendsYogya and BIONIC.
