I am a high school student who attends Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, New York. Attending an art school will hopefully allow me to take artistic approaches in bringing students and teachers together to make changes. I will create school shows that involves students to spread the important message: make a change. Students utilizing their artistic talent in spreading the message will open the minds of other students and teachers.
Participate in a school assembly and create a school-wide poster campaign. We will also engage with students from the lower forms in oceanic protection as well as debate forums in extra-curricular activities for older students.

Our small group has offered our time every other Saturday morning, during the Spring/Summer/Autumn for a few hours of our to work on the farm. Weeding, harvesting, & anything else they may need help with. We did it last year & can't wait to get started again! The farm will be having an Earth Day Pot luck as well... & it'll be so exciting to use some of this years beautiful produce to make a meal to share. :-)

My project will motivate young people to make a difference voluntarily to make a better world. It will begin by introducing this idea to my closest friends and the to the schools. Then we will reunited groups to help in a specific area to help orphans, homeless, or old age people.

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!!!!

in 2014 the International Day of Peace was celebrated by R&S groups in Uganda. During the celebrations, a number of activities were carried out, these included; assembling and flying the peace dove, matching through Lugard Avenue. The match was flagged off by Dr. Panta Kasoma (Executive Director of JGI Uganda) who noted that pupils are peace ambassadors in their school and communities. He said that peace goes beyond the absence of war in the country. He talked to the students about human beings being stewards of the earth and therefore charged with the responsibility of taking care of environment and animals but not to misuse them. He highlighted the floods in Kampala as one of the manifestations of how human activities have greatly degraded the environment. The pupils of St Theresa presented a poem in which they expressed their concern about lack of respect for their rights as children. They highlighted the high number of children not going to school due to lack of school requirements even when their parents can afford to get money for other things such as alcohol, negligence by parents leading to diseases and high rate of drug use and domestic violence. They called upon the concerned stakeholders to support and fight for children rights because they are the future of this country. A tree was planted at the school as a reminder that peace is not only the absence of war but also harmony with nature.
