The Problem

To bring an awareness of an area, such as Mexico, through project-based approaches, as well as information that is not found in the publicity that is always readily found through media, usually inaccurate. We also want to work with clubs like the Ecoclub and Tech and to facilitate for them the opportunity to tackle these for now, the GreenRoof Project and be successful, so we can move onto other projects and allow OTHER clubs to also tackle projects and be able to call them their own!

Our Plan

We have started with one student intern this summer, and have tackled two main projects this summer - 1) Creating an educational book on the colonia of San Angel to be published in both Spanish and English available to students parents, and schools in and outside of Mexico. 2) Make strides for enabling the two greenroof gardens to be attractions and learning tools to guide individuals of how they too can be more active in enabling environmental projects and learning. After projects are completed (these initial two) we will promote the Go Fund Me project even more to gain support for future projects, with those donating having a say in some of the projects we take on!
