Prompt: Tell a story — creatively through the medium of your major — about the inspiring practices and actions that you have observed and experienced as a result of the effects of the system of COVID-19 — what practices and actions you would like to see continue for the next 10 years because of the effects and support of their system of social resilience (Links to an external site.)? What have you observed or enacted recently that you would like to endure until 2030 because of the effects of the system these actions have — making life on Earth more livable, meaningful, and/or sustainable?

In my final project, I wanted to demonstrate water pollution in Venice. We know Venice for its dirty canals. Due to the recent events caused by COVID-19, people in Venice are staying at home. That’s why, surprisingly, the canals are clean right now. So neat that there are some water animals. This is proof of how people and tourists dirtying the canals of Venice. I am taking Venice as an example because everyone knows and will know Venice. It is a super common touristic location. I believe if we can show people this action that we are the ones who pollute the water by using this example, it will be valid for many years. After 10 or more years I wanted to people to see and remember how can we impact the environment.
