Operation day’s work is a solidarity campaign ran by youth who try to make a difference in the world. The whole concept behind the campaign is to financially support a chosen group of people by having students from all around the country working one day, earning money to donate to the people who need it the most.
This year, the money goes to nature conservation association who fight against the biggest oil companies in the whole world. The money is being used to help the people in Nigeria who had their whole town flooded in oil, because of several oil spillings. In the video under this paragraph, you can clearly see how the oil spillings has changed Nigeria and the people who live there. The oil has contaminated the water completely to the point where all the fish in the water is full of oil. I think this oil pollution has gone way too far, but watch the video and judge by yourself.
The Norwegian students are going to work for one day. They can either work at home or they can contact different companies around in their city and try to get a job there. A lot of the companies employ students, mostly because they would like to support the campaign by giving the students a workplace for a day.
In 2016 the money earned by the students went to helping children in Colombia get safer schools and education programs. This is the perfect opportunity for the students to help people who are less fortunate than us. I think operation day’s work is an awesome idea, and I encourage everyone who can to participate in this campaign.
