The work issue/ Kurdistan River Clean Up
We as American University Students started to clean up Kurdistan Rivers to make our environment clean and healthy, so we can protect our community in life.
Our group consists of AUIS students, teachers, and volunteers that work within cleanup service which restarts every new semester with new students.
The first project that we did was cleaning Dukan Lake with helping WorkKeepers in Iraq that supervised by Mr. Nabil Musa. Also, with helping environment keepers which are an AUIS official club made up of the university students.
For organizing this work, the first time that we have prepared a seminar to inform students with helping Mr. Nabil Musa who presented the subject. All of level 2 students involved in this seminar, and we have made groups in the class. For each group, we selected a leader. Then, each group started collecting information about cleaning project. After that, each group made a video individually. Finally, the best video, which was about Dukan lake, was chosen by the students. We have also put the Dukan lake project on the environment keepers' official website in order to help people get information about Dukan Lake project. Moreover, we started showing our project to people with helping Mr. Chris Guajardo, who supported us. Also, he has tried to organize this project since the beginning of the semester.
On Thursday Aug 18. 2016, we have started to clean up Dukan Lake for the first time in Sulaimaniyah. Thanks for Kurdish Media in Kurdistan that helped us in sharing our project. Additionally, this is the best way to educate people about protecting our environment.
We will not stop this project, and we will try to clean all locations around Dukan Lake and other places in Kurdistan by collecting the garbages, which have a negative impact on our environment and for the future.
