My project will create a city-wide committee of high school students dedicated to protecting Alameda's environment and keep Alameda an island above sea-level. Our mission is to work on city-level projects as a coalition of high schools, advising city officials as youth representatives, providing input to the Climate Action and Resiliency Plan (CARP), and educating students on climate change. Additionally, we will reduce Alameda’s carbon emissions to 25% below 2005 levels by the year 2020.
The Nature Project is a non-profit focused on providing under served youth with the opportunity to experience nature. A collective of like-minded athletes, environmentalists and philanthropists have teamed up to create a fund that facilitates these potentially life-changing experiences for youths from across the county.

First, my team and I found a speaker from a distinguished solar energy company to come and speak at our event. We then publicized the event a lot, and got great student participation!
I want to implement a compost bin in my High School's cafeteria. Not an actual big, smelly one, but one similar to a trash can where the food scraps inside of it could be transported to an actual compost bin. I am going to be starting an Environmental Club soon at my High School which would take the responsibility of maintaining the bin. I will be writing my principal urging him to let us execute this project for the better of our Earth.
We will do a variety of things to educate and raise awareness of the impact of plastic and ways to reduce our use of plastic. For example: - make signs and brochures - send letters - talk to people - give suggestions for alternatives
The project is to activate the garden in the community center ”Entre Amigos”. We will grow food, herbs and make experiments that will help the kids re-connect with the laws of nature and build better consumer habits. We will get sporadic visits from Fochican, a toothless chihuahua-mix rescue doggo, to encourage us with her magic tongue.
We will create a compost bin, we will fill garden beds with healthy soil, we will plant various seeds, and use our homemade compost to make the soil more nutrient-rich.
