Learning By Making Story: 12-YO wants to make earth a better place
Haaziq Kazi is a 12 year old TEDx speaker who is working on an ocean cleaning ship, which he named Ervis, that will automatically suck out waste from oceans and save marine life. The ship will run on renewable sources of energy like solar & wind and will be segregated on the basis of its size.

Once seeing a whale who died with intestinal blockage after consuming implausible amounts of plastic waste and later researching about the magnitude of this problem, is what drove this boy from Pune to wage war against plastic.

Haaziq has been working on his design for more than two years now. During these two years he has become more resilient, has spoken at prestigious global platforms, developed a mindset of solving problems, attitude to persevere and most importantly found his mission to save the planet.
Seeing how a whirlpool swept away the dirt while washing hands in the washbasin, Haaziq realised that this phenomena can help him sweep the waste on the surface of ocean. He created a prototype which lasted for a little over seven seconds but the unperturbed boy knew that this is only the beginning.

He later starting researching more about the problems around oceans. He learned so much about marine ecosystems and how life on land and water are interconnected. He also found that it not only plastic waste that causes problems but also maritime transport also contributes significantly.

While working on the final design he learned about 3D design and worked with a 3D designer to come up with an optimal model that can be transformed into a tangible product. With this design he is not stopping at just collecting the waste but also looking into waste management.

Though Haaziq is still on the journey of building his dream project, Makershala congratulates him for finding his ikigai through a project/problem and wishes him all the best in becoming a productive and responsible citizen of the world.
