The young founder of ‘Make A Change World’, environment activist Gary Bencheghib, inspires by example. Canoeing down the Citarum, deemed the world’s most polluted river, on kayaks made from plastic bottles, he and his brother got the government to take notice, impacting policy change to save the environment! ‘Be bold in fighting what we believe in’ is the powerful message he sends across.
