The Problem

Our goal is the youth-facilitated creation of an app that integrates dispersed communities of young environmental advocates, starting with but not limited to those involved with TreePeople.

Our Plan

The app’s components will be quite diverse, including the following: a forum where eco-citizens can exchange information, and an events calendar which provides a user-friendly layout of the newsfeed, an Opportunities for Involvement button, which directs students to internships, summer programs, field trips, club-initiation resources, and workshops, such as TreePeople’s annual Youth Leadership Summit, the choose-from-a-list option containing clearly laid out project ideas, or the Eco Quiz for the less decisive, which guides the participant through questions regarding available funds, space, and administration’s disposition to help find a suitable project, and finally, a Support Resources page with apps and organizations who can lend support for eco-projects. We are very excited to say that we already have our App design company planned out -- they are called Palisadian Apps, and were started in 2016 by a high school student and his former technology teacher!
