Over international borders( many of those fighting in middle eastern wars) the environment and protecting the world we live in is often forgotten. What if we could possibly bring children of different war torn countries together to not only create peace but to make a difference in there communities through sustainability. With war in many scenarios comes loss of money and education. Why don't we educate people on how to create environmentally sustainable power by not only helping them save money but help the world we all live in. But let's start small why not create small gardens in homes and schools to represent sustainability as well as the strive for peace. Lets now start even smaller and brainstorm a way to help send the knowledge and supplies to start these gardens of peace and grow sustainability over seas. Let's make a difference. Let's make peace. Let's have fun and make new friends!!!!

This project is meant to kick off a service learning/ social justice initiative. This funding will allow us to hold a community meeting of interested parties to engage in a conversation about how to best engage students in understanding the community where they go to school, it's significant history and there role as citizens of that community. This meeting will help to build community awareness and buy-in for the project as well as be a means to gather individuals who already are willing to contribute time and talent to the project.

Our class examined some of the key issues impeding quality of life and progress on the reservation. We narrowed them down to three main points: sense of hopelessness, poverty, and alcoholism. We conceived a plan to end tribal corruption and more fairly distribute revenues by limiting each individual's term on the tribal council to one year. Meetings and policies should be openly shared, along with agendas and budgets. We propose to diminish poverty and unemployment by transforming Pine Ridge to a center for cultural learning, horse activities and conservation, and indigenous and ecologically inspired tourism. We support the concept of shaman inspired and supported alcohol treatments, in combination with modern rehabilitation techniques. We believe that Lakota Sioux should step up and take a leadership role in environmental stewardship and bison and wolf conservation as their ancestors did.

First, each Roots & Shoots member had to ask permission to host The Kindness Challenge in either their classroom at school or with an extracurricular group, such as Boy Scouts. Then, everyone created a Kindness Calendar--an advent-style calendar that contained a weekly idea of how to be kind, such as "switch off all the lights when you leave a room" or "give a classmate a compliment". The idea is to read the kind idea and then challenge their peers to complete it in a certain amount of time. To keep track, each member also made a Kindness Cup, so if a peer does the challenge, they can write how they completed it and put it in the cup. Before the next kind idea is read, members can count how many of their peers did the previous challenge and add an extra challenge of having more people complete it next time!
