Peacework: Youth Environmental Education

We are better together. Which is why we need your help. We cannot do this alone. Over spring break we will be participating in one of the most important experiences during our time at NYU. Every year, through the organization, Peacework, a group of 10 students travel to Dangriga, Belize to implement environmental education through various community-wide service projects as part of NYU’s Alternative Breaks Program. Taking the knowledge that we will have learned over the course of a year, we will further the implementation of environmental education through various community-wide service projects. Working alongside schools, community organizations, and government leaders, our projects will involve creating lesson plans for primary and high school students in Dangriga, beach clean-ups, and several other community outreach programs. We are excited to take our passion for environmental sustainability and share it with other communities. One of the most powerful outlets for reducing cycles of systemic oppression and poverty is education. Which is why we hope to leave a lasting impact on the children that we work with. Teaching them the importance of taking care of our planet, and empowering them to take these sustainable steps on their own. Often times it is the communities like Dangriga, which contribute the least to the climate crisis, that are affected the most by it. By travelling to this community, participants will be able to see these effects firsthand and learn the best ways to teach communities about the ways to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change. In order to bring change, we have to unite as one, because there is power in numbers. With your help, we will have the opportunity to celebrate the impacts of doing something greater than ourselves. Radical transformation is a collective act, and every action counts as something!
