To start we assessed our school to where or what needed the most help. We educated ourselves about the proper ways to recycle and what can be recycled. We looked to see where garbage was collecting and if there were garbage and recycling bins around. We also put up recycling signs that let people know what they could or could not recycle. We put signs around the school that invited people to our All School Clean Up. After school we walked around the playground and cleaned the garbage and sorted them into the correct recyclable categories. We had garbage bags, recycling bin, plastic gloves to help us pick up garbage. We also wrote a grant to try to get a recycling bin on the playground. And eventually we would like to plant a tree on our freshly cleaned playground.

Our KYE-YAC Roots & Shoots group joined with the Sister City Foundation to participate in a local Peace Day celebration called Seeds of Peace. We will celebrate peace through art, chalk art, on the sidewalk running through the park. We will engage kids and adults to take part and share their vision of peace through art – and a little play!

Our aim is to beautify the so-far-undeveloped hill so that locals can benefit from such a place in an urban area. After the completion of our project, visiting the hill will make people - and especially young children - recommit to the conservation of nature as well as raise awareness to environmental problems in the area. This hill can become an example of how each one of us can make a world of difference if only we take action. Our 10-year-old students visited the hill as part of the preparatory work needed. They were asked to make a field survey, writing reports on the specific problems and mapping the hill. Then, they were asked to present their reports to all students and prioritise the problems by voting for the most urgent. In groups, they made suggestions and offered solutions. The last stage will involve the students walking out of the classroom for a second time to take action. Some of the activities planned are the cleaning up of the hill and the hiking trails, putting up bins and signs for recycling, creating picnic areas by constructing wooden benches and tables, planting of trees and plants (an agricultural engineer will teach us all about the area's flora). At the same time, the students will run a campaign so that all the students of our school as well as the town council and the community will be informed on this environmental programme.

We want to get a group of kids to help clean up the SDCCS Mountain View community. Right now the street outside of school is covered with crushed up bottles and paper and candy wrappers. We will meet in the morning before school at 8:15 on Tuesdays. We thought that if we do this it would be an easy way to help the community and all the people who don't want to see trash on the ground and the stray dogs who might accidentally eat it. Our goal is to see cleaner streets and healthier animals.
