Yesterday, we had the honor to welcome Melati Wijsen and Gary Bencheghib in our school. Melati and Gary are two extraordinary and inspiring change makers, who influence the ecological movement worldwide. Melati is helping to clean up the Island of Bali. She founded Bye Bye Plastic Bags in 2013 at the age of 12 together with her younger sister Isabel, then 10 years old. Gary is founder of Make a Change World, a media outlet that uncovers uplifting and inspirational stories on a mission to do good.
Our IB students Zoe and Leonie immediately declared their willingness to introduce Melati and Gary to the crowd. After they had spoken, they answered many questions of our interested students. Thank you so much, Melati and Gary!
