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.

We will start with the history of the monument and st. Isidoros' life. Then we will write down the damage done by people or time to the monument and we will contact the local community, as well as the authorities for information or help to bring the problem to light.

My project will take place at the California State University San Marcos. I will attempt to create a fully functioning agricultural as well as visual garden in hopes to spark interest in the lives of more students. The project will require publicity as well as man power but it can be accomplished with the right amount of willing people.
