Educating Neighbors to Join Youth in Environmental Conservation
Art Medium: Creative Sign-making
Location: Esparta, Honduras
Youth, municipal employees, and teachers came together to analyze the problem of plastic waste and deforestation in their community and how it negatively impacts local rivers and the ocean.
They brainstormed solutions to implement in their community and decided that educating others on the problem and the necessity to respect the environment was of utmost importance.
They painted creative signs to post around the community and held a final public event with the mayor where commitments were made to continue environmental initiatives such as eliminating illegal tree cutting and implementing reforestation projects, reducing single-use plastics, and stopping the contamination of waterways.
