Tiny Earth joins The World Health Organization (WHO) in recognizing World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) to promote and educate communities about the urgent antibiotic/antimicrobial resistance crisis from November 18th – 24th.
This year, Tiny Earth will be hosting a social media event to raise awareness during World Antibiotic Awareness Week. Aside from providing education about antibiotic resistance, the goal of this event is to build community within and outside of Tiny Earth by sharing personal anecdotes, scientific findings, and creative endeavors on this topic. Through this event, we can facilitate conversations about this global issue to encourage better practices and avoid the spread of drug-resistant infections.
We are asking students to participate with Tiny Earth to share their antibiotic resistance stories, provide PSAs and information for their communities, and showcase Tiny Earth’s approach to mitigate the antibiotic resistance effect. Please submit your contribution to these prompts through whatever media type suits you (video, audio, photos, comic books, podcasts, etc.) by posting them on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok with the hashtag #TinyEarthWAAW and tag @tinyearthnet. Get creative!
