Change is something that comes with action not just talking about the issue at hand. When cleaning up more polluted places we learned to be more appreciative of the environment around us, and felt the sad truth that our Hamilton-Wenham bubble doesn't extend very far when it comes to the environment.Cleaning up the environment has taught me to open my eyes to the truth about the human population and our environmental recklessness as a world. we choose to not see the problem and to ignore what was right in front of us.We thought our actionable step was worth the endeavor because it truly made a change on the environment. Not only did we do a written component to this project, but we went out and took action against the issue we chose to research. Being accountable is something we have learned throughout the process of this project. When we take accountability for our actions in the future, it will help us take care of our responsibilities in a quick and fulfilling way. Whether it be work or family, accountability can help one stay on task, and be more successful in their day to day lives. Another skill that could be applicable is being consistent in our effort to fight climate change. Not taking day offs is crucial in keeping a steady path of progress. Unlike a research paper, this project required students to take an actionable step along side of researching an issue. Ultimately, we made true change and it proves that change can happen anywhere at anytime, by anyone.
