In the fall, our students will begin to evaluate the 1/2 acre plot to see how our spring planting succeeded. Along with Pheasants Forever, we will begin monitoring the flora and fauna found in our area and watch for the continued success of our native species. We hope to evaluate the soil as well as the amount of rainfall in the area. Once we have established our milkweed population, we hope to attract Monarch butterflies to the area to evaluate their numbers, tag and monitor them. Our students will be citizen scientists, collecting, evaluating and communicating the information to the Monarch watch team and to the community.
We will conduct student and family surveys about their knowledge of food desserts and neighborhood disparities before and after our project. At the end of the year, students who chose to work on the garden will present their work and research findings/community maps in a capstone presentation to families and community members, who we will then survey again to see if their knowledge has increased.
We will begin by writing up a mission and vision statement, as well as an impact goal. Then: - undergo a review of the current situation regarding the health and wellbeing of the elephants. - create and manage a mahout program empowering the mahouts to be support the conversation message the foundation - create business plan We expect it will take one year to create the foundational program
Os objectivos deste projecto são: reciclar telemóveis; consciencializar o público para esta crise humana, animal e ambiental; e incentivar a propagação da campanha por todo o país.
I will reach out to the local animal shelter and organize a visit and tour to learn more about their mission as a nonprofit and about adoption centers in general and how to support them.
Myself and other Global Glimpse participants accepted into the program will ask for the volunteering support of Zumba teachers who will run the classes, will advertise through online invitations, posters, and flyers, and also bake healthy snacks to sell as part of a bake sale at the event. To attend there will also be an entrance fee. All donations/money collected will be put to support other students in being able to travel internationally and have a valuable experience.
We want to build an "outdoor classroom" that will use the land, sea, and sky of our Bronx campus to provide opportunities to learn and protect our environment, share with our neighbors and give our students opportunities to gain practical skills and have outside fun. We will build and grow a container garden producing flowers for our neighbors in the nursing home next door, vegetables for a soup kitchen on Fordham Road, pollinator plants to support bees and butterflies, and other plants that are native to this area, like berries, sassafras, and June berries. We want to restore the Indian kettle in the river and add an oyster restoration project to help filter the river naturally. We want to add a weather station to help forecast severe weather since our neighborhood and school were crushed by Hurricane Sandy. All of these things will help us to lead environmental stewardship efforts in our corner of the Bronx.
I will try creating awareness through social media. Engage myself in helping the strays and unowned animals on streets. Also make people of the beautiful Himalayan community of my state, their culture, their lives, their challenges.
We will collect electronic devices during the month of February to show love for our environment, animals, and people of the world. It will be our Valentine gift to the planet and its inhabitants. Collection bins will be placed at the entrances of each classroom and letters to parents will be sent out to each family informing them of our project and how they can help. The total amount of the devices will be counted and recorded by the preschoolers. The devices collected will be sent for recycling the first part of March. Parents will received reminders and updates, as well as our final count through their weekly newsletters.
Students will be able to give a 3-5 minute talk on their personal connection to sustainability, climate change, and environmental justice. They will be able to share their WHY in a way that inspires and engages others. They will pass out materials that they co-developed with Otis College students that encourage people to “be green” as well as follow up with schools and organizations to find out how their talk impacted them. Student interns will also identify how sharing their story has affected their perception of themselves as leaders and community changemakers. We will collect the number of people reached by the speaker series. Students will also train other students in storytelling on Saturday, May 6 during the Green Ambassadors Institute (www.greenambassadors.org/register).
