Y-TOP Joining the Global Mission

While going through a tough year, it is valuable to remind ourselves that:

We still live in a world full of many and distinct lives - including the life of the earth itself. 

 

As the Y-TOP community, especially at this time, we pursue sustainable life for every age, every living being and sustainability for the planet.

 

However, we know that this only comes along with a lot of care and effort - which includes our personal contribution

We were so much inspired by the global action as launched by the United Nations (UN) - that is the Sustainable Development Goals -  we came up with a framework which allows the personal contribution of one on a daily basis. 

Please visit the embedded links above to collect more information about the UN's call for action.

Personal Goals for 2021

Hello again!

If you are looking for a fresh start for the 2021, you are on the right page.

Here is a framework that will help you to practice on your daily habits for a sustainable personality and an equivalent environment.

 

We encourage you to start practising as soon as you can!   

Main Goal:

  • To broaden your understanding of how your actions can affect others and the environment.

  • To breed positive habits for environmental and societal care. 

  • To include you in a global challenge.

Time: 

We suggest sparing 5-10 minutes per each goal. 

Instructions (Sample): 

1st Step: Pick 2 days in a week 

 

2nd Step: Pick 2 goals and practice on at least 1 activity per each.

3rd Step: Apply this for a month and start your next month picking the last goal and the activities that you haven't tried the month before.

  • You are free to find and choose your own method to practice the activities.

  • Stay tuned! We will be having online meetings every once in a while -we would love hearing your progress too.  

  • Do not forget to give us your feedback at the end of this page.
