A lower elementary class in Lexington Montessori School chose to engage the school community and ask that everyone recycle devices that were no longer being used. The class spoke to parents, staff and students about the issues of coltan mining. Groups made signs and drop boxes, some took time to speak to each and every class and others manned collection areas. The class chose one day where everyone could easily drop their devices before and after school during drop off and pick up. An email was sent to the school community so that everyone was aware of the recycling day.
I created a stand with my dad for helping chimps to raise money for this group
Participate in a school assembly and create a school-wide poster campaign. We will also engage with students from the lower forms in oceanic protection as well as debate forums in extra-curricular activities for older students.
We volunteer handing out promotions & walking for Farm Sanctuary Walks in Philadelphia. My daughter was thrilled to join my friend & I, and I'm happy to show her to stand up for what she believes in.
On the 15th of March 2015 we will visit JGI "Chimp Eden" and take a tour by sanctuary staff of the sanctuary.
Our special needs classroom will create and run a Recycle Center inside our Elementary School: 1. Collect recyclables. 2. Sort material. 3. Track data 4. Earn coins "change" for each piece of recycled material. 5. Donate "change" to conservation of threatened habitat and protection of endangered species in Africa.
I will help to get the word out. I will lead them in Sing for the Climate and upload photos and videos to the FutureFlash! Project on facebook and twitter. And during lunch I will project facebook and twitter posts from the Peoples Climate March in New York City.
I would like to publish a vegetarian cookbook, compiling recipes from vegetarian cooks in Portland and beyond and sell the book to raise money to "adopt" apes through the Jane Goodall's "become a chimp guardian program." 13 girls have joined the effort so far. We've sent out requests for recipes to chefs around the world and the recipes have started pouring in. Next steps: start cooking! We need to take photos of each dish and begin illustrating the book. A fun way to use the cold, rainy winter weekends in Oregon!
To share Dr. Goodall's message of hope, connection, and peace.
