Actions we are taking: 1. We are currently rallying students to be ready to fill the capitol building when this resolution is voted on. We are contacting schools ranging from elementary to college around the state. We are still waiting to receive a time slot on the floor schedule, and will keep students posted with updates so they can be ready to carpool to the capitol from their location in Utah on the day this happens. 2. We are circulating an online petition in support of our climate resolution. So far, it has nearly 250 signatures. 3. We are identifying the legislative committees that our resolution will have to be passed through, and contacting representatives on those committees to urge them to support our resolution. 4. We plan to contact every possible state news network to cover this initiative once our Resolution is introduced. 5. If our efforts are successful and this resolution is passed, we will continue to work with our state legislators to ensure that they stay devoted to their commitment to address climate change.

Steps in our project: 1. Find funding: We just applied for a $2,500 grant to support this project financially. 2. Identify partners and mentors to provide guidance to our R&S group throughout the project: We have contacted a Utah State University Marketing Professor to guide us on advertising our project, and we are partnering with the Utah Department of Health to identify the health impacts of Air Pollution. 3. Gather film equipment: we are working with our school's film teacher to gain camera equipment. 4. Begin Filming: Over the next several months, we gather interviews about the impact of air pollution on health and potential solutions to the problem from leaders and students around Utah. Project Deliverables: 1. Website with Story Map- an interactive map of the state of Utah, in which users may click on a region of Utah and videos from that region will be displayed. The videos will capture interviews of citizens from that particular region, discussing how the air pollution affects their lives. The map also will be displayed on the following websites: http://epht.health.utah.gov/epht-view/ http://www.health.utah.gov/utahair/ 2. Billboards with a portrait of interviewees and a quotation about the impact of air pollution on their lives 3. Social media pages to promote the campaign and continue the discussion

Our "Help Our Garden" project consists of beautifying our school garden by painting our wooden garden crates and making a welcoming banner to place at the entrance of the garden with the hope of attracting more visitors so they can take advantage of the fruits and vegetables that we grow there. We also help to sustain our garden by buying more seeds and gardening supplies.

Red mangroves filter and clarify the water, protect coastal communities from storm surge, prevent erosion, and provide a shelter for a wide variety of mammals, aquatic species, reptiles and birds. They are also a staple in the diets of the critically endangered Key Deer. Furthermore, evidence shows that mangroves combat global warming by decreasing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Wild Over Wildlife members, Florida International University SEAS, and Lee County 4-H Club members have collected thousands of propagules which are being grown in a variety of homes and in the FIU Shade House. After nine to twelve months, the seedlings will be transplanted to areas along the Gulf and Atlantic shores. We have numerous other non-profit organizations that have collaborated with us for the first two years and we have secured their assistance as the project expands for future plantings. To date, our project has involved more than 100 people including Wild Over Wildlife club members and community service partners. More than 80 hours of community service work has been done by each board member of WOW and others have joined for 6 hour shifts throughout the summer transplants and harvests.

We are a team of eight primary school students from the private school "Elliniki Paedia". We are working on a power point which we are going to present to the students of the public school of our neighbourhood. The content will be the harmful effects of the wood smoke of fireplaces on the atmosphere and our health. We aim at informing students and motivate them to discuss about this problem with their parents. Moreover, we are going to inform them about the proper ways of using fireplaces that will not pollute our environment. We will print leaflets with instructions about the proper use of fireplaces which we will give to the students to take home. Additionally we are going to distribute these leaflets to residents mainly to local shops and places many residents visit.
