Canada Forest Trust
Arwin Karir is a 14 year old advocating the intersectionality of Climate Change, Financial Systems and Healthcare Development, through his engagements in Health Occupation Students of America, Target Alpha and Canada Forest Trust, to achieve the outcomes of decelerating climate change, preventing future debt crises and improving quality of healthcare.
Arwin’s most memorable growing-up experience was when he had started grade 9 geography and he started learning about the climate and its horrible state. He had always done basic things like turning off the faucet while brushing his teeth but he began to lean more toward the activist side of it.
Because of the importance of climate change right now, Arwin wants to focus his high school career on it. He is a student ambassador for the 'Canada Forest Trust,' a programme that distributes seedlings to schools and plants their forests around the country. For him, addressing climate change is critical to initiating a sequence of events that will lead to the resolution of other major global crises. Furthermore, he is engaging in his interest in healthcare through Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) - a global student-led organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services, as well as in finance and monetary policy through Target Alpha, a Canadian student-led organization which promotes financial literacy among high school students.
To further his impact in climate action, he plans to establish an organization to solve the interconnected problem of Climate Change. For the future of his project, he aspires to have lit a fuse in his school for climate change awareness, so that other children like him may engage in these activities and, possibly, improve the future.
At university and beyond, Arwin wants to be remembered as a multi-faceted engineer, perhaps even establishing his own enterprise, who has utilized his expertise to transform the world in the future. He aspires to be acknowledged for his contributions to computer science and environmental protection.
