The students at Al-Hasan ibn Al-Haytham High School for Boys in Irbid, Jordan investigated the important issue of pollution in collaboration with the Humanities School in Brooklyn, New York, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about pollution and its link to diseases. This project was also very action focused as it brought forward a communal effort to collect rubbish in the community. The students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We chose to work on pollution in cooperation with Irbid's municipality, schools, and community because a clean environment leads to a disease-free society. We hope we can make our community become nice and amazing."
This student project was created as part of Campfire 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US, Jordan, and Pakistan. Campfire is run by Global Nomads Group. Campfire is made possible thanks to the generous support of our partners The Bezos Family Foundation, an award from the Aspen Institute Stevens Initiative with support from the U.S. Department of State and the Bezos Family Foundation, and additional support from PhotoWings, the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, and the Yahoo Employee Foundation.
