My little brother, Dodzi, and I will be living a lot longer than past generations and I want to do everything I can to keep the environment clean and green.
Every March, I help with the Keep Australia Beautiful Clean up and last month I joined a Council Bush care Group working near the solar farm.
I have worked in a local café since I was 14 and have saved enough money for my first electric car. It's great that I can charge it at so many places around the City.
I still use my bike for short trips though, it keeps me healthy, it's cheaper and there are so many bicycle corridors around now – it's sometimes even quicker.
I take my brother down to the Wiley Park ponds a lot. He likes all the birds and plants. We can hear the frogs but can never find them, though we often see pretty birds, turtles and lizards.
Our villa complex, in East Hills, uses solar energy and has a water tank. It's great to see most of my neighbours have these things as well.
The Council keeps the streets really clean and I know we recycle a lot more than we ever did before. Everyone is very aware they should not litter or dump rubbish.
My family likes to go down to the Georges River whenever we can for picnics. I know the water is clean and the river is really healthy. It's a great place to kayak.
We must all do our part to protect our world.
It's up to everyone to do their bit for future generations – government, businesses and me.
Safe, green, clean, growing local food, environmentally friendly, with healthy waterways and protecting our natural environment.
