2022 Teens Dream - Aquaponics
My dream is to spread Aquaponics in Lafayette, Colorado by using the money from this grant to buy a small-scale operation for my school. By using this system, I will be able to provide food for the local community as well as to set an example of how effective it can be for sustainably producing food. As a part of a larger group in the Teens Dream Think Tank, I will push to make aquaponics a more widely recognized form of modern agriculture. At the same time, Aquaponics directly relates to goals 2, 3, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, and 15 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, but most specifically to Climate Action, as it will create jobs, strengthen sustainable economies, reduce hunger, and will shift away from traditional farming methods for a more sustainable future.
