It’s already December. So while writing this blog and having this topic in mind I could not help myself but reflect on the year as a whole. I found it intriguingly challenging trying to describe this year. There have been extremely joyous and happy moments and there have been extremely sad and low ones, as well.
This is a pivotal point in the year as we embark on closing the chapter to 2021 and welcoming a new year ahead. Realizing that things are still uncertain can be stressful. So for this reason I wanted to use this opportunity to highlight some good news headlines from 2021:
China announced that it has officially eliminated malaria after decades-long effort to subdue the infectious disease that kills hundreds of thousands of people each year.
Canada passed two laws to affirm the rights of Indigenous Peoples
On Canada’s National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 22, the country took a step toward promoting the equality of Indigenous peoples by signing two laws that recognize Indigenous status and rights and incorporate them into federal legislation.
77 countries in the world have now announced full or partial bans on plastic bags
To combat the effects of plastic pollution on the planet, more governments have stepped up to ban single-use plastics and promote sustainable alternatives instead.
Small communities are supporting each other to combat food insecurity
Governments aren’t the only ones lending a helping hand when it comes to fighting hunger. This year, more communities have gathered to support each other through collective action and mutual aid.
I am excited and optimistic to see what 2022 has in store for us.
