LIFE+ | One child can change the whole world

Hello everyone! My name is Aykut, I'm 23 years old and I come from Turkey. I lived in 3 different cities in Turkey far from each other throughout my life. Now I live in Kahramanmaraş, in the south of Turkey. Last year, I graduated from Karadeniz Technical University, Department of Construction Technologies. I developed myself in the direction of architecture and design.

I like dealing with art. I write poems and novels, I sculpt, I am dealing with painting and crafts. I am a soloist and chorus in the state choir in my city.

I am in love with science as well as art. I have been curious and questioning since childhood. I designed the first project when I was only 10 years old. Thanks to this project during my high school years, I developed 25 projects and established the state-supported Tübitak Science Fair. I took part in the Google Science Fair in the same year. For a while, I taught the theory of relativity to students in schools.

I have always tried to do my projects as nature-friendly, ecological projects. Because I grew up in nature. I learned all my thoughts and abilities here. I believe all information is hidden in nature.

I think that all the problems in the world are experienced because we have lost your respect for nature and forgot to live with it.

I think children should get nature education above all else. People who love nature, love the whole universe. And one child can change the whole world.

Nature taught me to wonder and question. Therefore, I like to research new places, discover new information and share this information with others.

Today I am with new faces in a new place.

I am working as a European Union volunteer within the ICDET in Sofia, Bulgaria.

We are thinking about how we can make the world better with a group of people in this beautiful city and we are working on many projects. This is worth everything.
