I want people to understand how air quality affects the overall well being of people. Three of my siblings that all grew up in the same neighborhood got asthma and I believe that there is a correlation between air quality and rates of respiratory diseases/ infections.

Eco Ryders will host four rounds of three week long comprehensive environmental justice classes. The classes will review issues that effect local Bronx youth (example... Lead poisoning, asthma rates, zoning laws) and review how these issues connect to the environment and to policy. Each week will go over an umbrella subject moving from Food&Health to the Environment and then to Policy. Each week will look at the umbrella subject from a local, national and then global perspective in the hopes of showing students how all these issues connect. In addition students will engage in hands on stewardship by helping to maintain community gardens and perform lead testing in community food gardens. As a reward and intensive for joining Eco Ryders students will be taught how to design their own skateboards for free. We like using skateboarding as a tool to attract interest because it also helps to promote healthy living.
