Teen's Dream

Hello and good afternoon, my name is Victor Fernando Santa Olalla Chávez and my idea to change the world is called 1 For 500, this in reference to a study done by the journal Nature and Yale University in which they indicate that there are approximately 422 trees per person in the world, well my idea with 1 For 500 is to reach 500 trees per person before 2030. It will all start as a way of challenging social networks to attract the attention of the younger audience in which we will ask them that they plant everything they eat for an indefinite time (they can choose). My idea arose when I saw that after I ate my fruits and vegetables I saw that the seeds were thrown into the trash can but then I thought what would happen if all those seeds became trees … My idea would not only help in a Sustainable Development Goal but in 5 which are: having zero world hunger (2), world economic growth (8), a revolution in the agricultural industry (9), ending large-scale pollution (13), and finally the repopulate life on earth (15). In our challenge we will encourage and give priority to fruit trees and vegetables since apart from giving us oxygen and protection, they will give us fruits with which we can feed ourselves and plant more trees. I will also instruct people on how they can germinate, nurture, and reap the results of their own action. This idea began thanks to my mother who encouraged me to plant a few lentils and beans that we had to spare, after a while I was completely facissized and I could not do more than continue! I even took a Mooc at the University of Cordoba in Spain on organic farming and at home. At this moment I will not only share my idea with the United Nations but also with my school, my community, and my little audience on my social networks to share my idea and try to make it come true. I am also planning to instruct people in high poverty places so the can grow, cultivate, eat, and even sale their own crops. I really would like this project to come true, I want enough dissemination so that my idea reaches the whole world and that is why in the most humble and attentive way I share my idea, I really want to change the world and make it a better place for future generations.

Thank you very much for your attention and I am waiting for your response.
