We are going to create a 50 minute long interactive presentation. We will share our story, and frequently ask the audience questions about their thoughts and experiences in doing environmental advocacy.

We're inviting global ‘classrooms’ (can be a physical classroom, before/after-school program, extracurricular program, etc.) to participate in a series of 30-60 minute virtual field trips in July, hosted over the video conferencing software, Zoom. Field trips will feature inspiring individuals, from those starting sustainable social enterprises, to grassroots community organizing, to nonprofit leaders in the environmental field. It is intended to invite under-resourced communities into the global environmental justice conversation, and empower students to develop agency and create change starting in their local community.

In the fall, we will dig a trench, fill it with maple logs from a tree that was cut down a couple of years ago, branches, etc. We will add composted leaves from our town, surround it with straw bales, and plant cover crops of winter rye and hairy vetch. In the spring, we will plant peas, which fix nitrogen, as well as being delicious. We would research other plants that would make sense for the area: maybe mushrooms, currants and blueberries. The result we would hope for would be good soil with lots of microorganism and edible plants for ourselves and the birds successfully grown from it. We would photograph it, and science classes could analyze the soil and micro-organisms. We would also use this as a demonstration of hugelkultur for students at all our schools and for the community - posting on a website and hosting visits.

We will make a weather station by buying an anemometer, barometer, hygrometer, rain gauge, thermometer and weather journal. Members of the “Peace Lillies” (our gardening group) will collect the data and use it to help create weekly garden plans for planting, weeding, harvesting and planning. Our weather station will let us participate in citizen science groups and share our information in our school and community as a news service. That will help us get more publicity and bring in more volunteers to grow our garden. Weather data and tools will also be used by science teachers for a practical perspective on the reality of climate change.

Several badges or state projects grow plants with youth that after the plant is done have no further use. With this project the students can use these plants as a service learning project plus provide fresh produce to the shelters. In urban areas their is no place to grow out the plants. With our raise beds we have the space.

My project will create a city-wide committee of high school students dedicated to protecting Alameda's environment and keep Alameda an island above sea-level. Our mission is to work on city-level projects as a coalition of high schools, advising city officials as youth representatives, providing input to the Climate Action and Resiliency Plan (CARP), and educating students on climate change. Additionally, we will reduce Alameda’s carbon emissions to 25% below 2005 levels by the year 2020.

Starting on Earth Day, April 22nd, our project will educate school-age children on the issues enveloped in climate change, and what they can do to help. We'll accomplish this by providing lunch time activities that teach about the issues and advocate for change.
