Hi everyone! I am Şeymanur Genbay from Turkey. I am 17. I live in Izmir which is gorgeous city . I study at TED Izmir High School.Actually, this event was a surprise for us. We did not expect such success. My partner( love you Esila<3) and I was actually doing this for our annual project at school.Thank you very much to our teacher who directed us to this event.I love the northern lights.Without such a pandemic process, I would love to come there with my partner and take pictures in beautiful Swedish landscapes 🙁 Good luck to everyone and I hope better days will be with us.

Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

This is what I think is one of the solutions for a sustainable future:

"W" ake up/ "A" ct consciously/ "T" ake step/ "E" ngage attention/ "R" ebel ill fortune
