Hello, and welcome to this space.
My name is Martina Buchal. I am the One Young World Coordinating Ambassador for North America, Global Ambassador for World Merit, and now Canadian Ambassador for Global Resolutions --- sense a pattern of do-gooding and ambassadorship here?
I take my role of positively affecting change very seriously. An internationally recognized speaker, coach, and peace practitioner, I've been traveling the globe listening to, empowering, and working with others to engage their voices and talents to create a more positive future for our planet through the Sustainable Development Goals. I have traveled to more than 30 countries, engaged with thousands of people worldwide and spoken on prestigious stages including the United Nations Educators Conference, and the Summit of the Americas, where I represented North American youth interests by special invitation from the Vice President of Panama herself! It's been an honour and privilege to do the work I do. As I continue on this journey toward elevating the status quo through a #STARTWITHIN approach, I hope that you'll join me!
Who I've worked with
The world is a beautiful place, but somehow it seems that humankind's presence here has done more harm than good. As a species, we kill other species and our own; we destroy natural habitats of wildlife, while mindlessly depleting our own food supplies. Poverty and inequality plague us, and have done so for decades.
