The project seeks to get every house in Coleraine a small plant, if all goes to plan I'm going to enlist the help of the council and a few local garden centers! Hopefully we will have enough plants donated to us to complete this task by the end of next month preferably in a smaller amount of time.
I will be planting plants and maybe even a garden.
The app’s components will be quite diverse, including the following: a forum where eco-citizens can exchange information, and an events calendar which provides a user-friendly layout of the newsfeed, an Opportunities for Involvement button, which directs students to internships, summer programs, field trips, club-initiation resources, and workshops, such as TreePeople’s annual Youth Leadership Summit, the choose-from-a-list option containing clearly laid out project ideas, or the Eco Quiz for the less decisive, which guides the participant through questions regarding available funds, space, and administration’s disposition to help find a suitable project, and finally, a Support Resources page with apps and organizations who can lend support for eco-projects. We are very excited to say that we already have our App design company planned out -- they are called Palisadian Apps, and were started in 2016 by a high school student and his former technology teacher!

When we were deciding how we wanted to help our local environment, one of the students (4 years old) said, "We use a lot of paper at school for drawing. I think we should plant a tree since paper comes from trees!" We decided that we would plant a tree on our playground as a way of saying "thank you" to the trees for providing paper and for allowing us to breathe clean air (which is especially important in big cities like NY!) I wanted the students to get experience with fundraising and working toward a goal. The students came up with a plan to have an Ice Cream Fundraiser and luckily for us, it was a beautiful, sunny day! We made over $300! This allowed us to purchase a Cherry Blossom Tree for our playground. Finally, I wanted the students to "get their hands dirty" and help plant the tree. On a rainy, New York day, the students worked hard to dig a hole for our new Cherry Blossom.
We will be hosting a panel discussion at the state capital which will include Dr. Laura Nelson, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Energy Development, Jeff Silverstrini, Mayor of Millcreek, Robert Davies, Physicist at Utah State University, Anna Wilder, BYU Student and President of the Climate Change Club, and Mark Burdge, Senior Executive Consultant for Evergreen CEM. We will also have a virtual statement given by Congresswoman Mia Love, a member of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus.
We will show it in the school library and hold a bake sale outside advertising the movie. Any kids wanting to see it after school could come to the movie and/or support the parks and buy things at the bake sale.
We will buy materials and carbon monoxide detectors for people. We will raise funds with fundraising events to make money and spread awareness about the issue. We will start by raising funds inside of our school, if we see that it is going well we will try to make the project larger and try to raise even more funds.
This project's goal is to educate the current group members of Humans for Animals on ethical and sustainable beekeeping practices. We visited the campus beekeeper Ed Popelka who gave us a tour of his farm and educated us on his practices and how he differs from the global commercial beekeeping businesses. Through this we will learn how bees benefit us and how we can all help the bees!
I am going to buy trees at the store, using my money. Then I will put up posters and we will hold a Tree day, where everyone will get to plant a tree. It will be held yearly.
