On December 6th 2014, people around the world will spend a few hours picking up litter in their street, neighbourhood, local park, beach, workplace school, or wherever they can, to make the world green and clean again, and safe for wildlife. A facebook event has been created: https://www.facebook.com/events/1561976780689227/ and an instagram account has been set-up: http://instagram.com/cleanupyourworld
The kids had a great time building their own nesting habitat and it allowed their creativity to show. Most of the kids recycled materials (soup cans, two liter bottles, etc.) to create a cylinder to hold bamboo and paper tubes. Some kids stated they wanted to build a wooden frame around their tubes and planned to finish their projects at home. To learn more about our project, read our blog post "Insect Hotels: Nesting Habitat for Mason Bees" [ http://evavarga.net/2014/03/20/insect-hotels/ ]
The global goal: to have people share photos where they care for the environment, make it a new trend in selfie photos The local goal: to not be indifferent and hopeless about the mess around me, engage people in "clean up" meetings aimed to show a positive example
Bringing awareness of sustainability to our community through education programs and projects that are fun for all ages. School Outreach project Plastic Bag committee Community garden
My project, "Clean Up!", will encourage kids and adults of all ages to join our group, and help us keep Tennessee clean! I will do it by advertising the State Wide Clean Up Day in as many newspapers I can, then I will gather all the voulenteers I can get and start the Clean Up! by everyone bringing anything they can put trash in and get to work!
For this project to be successful I will advertise in my school and around the area where I live until I reach my target. I will then send these phones off to be recycled.
Since the children are young, we will introduce the above goals through arts and crafts, games, discussions, an occasional field trip and find age appropriate community service projects/activities.

The GO GREEN Team members are trying to raise awareness of environmental concerns and reach out to connect to other student groups through videos and partnerships. We meet after school once per week as an elementary school environmental club. We also have high school mentors that support our work and learning.
