J&B Blue Program (Harvard International Review)“There is No Planet B: Discussing Global Sustainability for the HIR” Highlights: J&B worked with the client on a 1,100-word article for the Harvard International Review, addressing its sustainability theme, “There is No Planet B.” J&B worked in a three-person team and split the project into three main steps, focusing on topic selection, outlining, draft writing, and careful editing. At the end of the project, the client gained knowledge about crucial global sustainability issues and international economic policies. The Topic:J&B assisted the client with a 1,100-word article for the Harvard International Review (HIR), addressing its sustainability theme, “There is No Planet B.” The Process:J&B worked in a three-person team and split the project into four main steps. At the start of the project, J&B met with the client to identify topics, countries, and issues they might like to explore for the HIR. After brainstorming with the client, J&B shared three potential sub-topics with the client that aligned with their goals for this project. After the client selected the topic they liked the most, J&B shared a detailed outline for the client. The client then produced the first draft of their article using J&B’s outline as a guide. At the end of the project, J&B carefully edited and revised the client’s draft, polishing it and ensuring that it met all of the HIR’s content, language, and formatting guidelines. Writing Style:The client is a diligent writer passionate about equality. J&B helped the client smoothly connect their ideas and integrate their sources into their article so that their message remained strong and clear. J&B also worked with the client to highlight and retain only the most important parts of their article, to ensure that they did not go over the HIR’s word count. At the end of the project, the client increased their knowledge about crucial issues within global sustainability and international economic policies. J&B’s Key Goals: Scholarly research A contemporary approach Editing and revising Collaboration Journal Selection Process:As the client is deeply involved in socioeconomic inequalities and international issues, J&B recommend the HIR so that the client could explore sustainability from an angle that interested them. Writing an article for the HIR also allowed the client to practice a journalistic style of writing—a great way to diversify writing skills and prepare for college. At the end the project, the client not only expanded their writing portfolio, but gained deeper insights into the challenges the world faces as it tries to decrease its carbon-footprint.
