Thank You for Your Generous Investment in the Next Generation of Environmental Leaders!

Did you know that those who are more environmentally knowledgeable are 50% more likely to recycle, 50% more likely to avoid using chemicals on their lawn, and 10% more likely to save energy in their home? Through your support to date, TakingITGlobal (TIG) has been able to engage youth, students and educators around the world to collaborate across borders, learning about and taking action on pressing environmental challenges.  

Over the last 3 months, TIG has:
  • Developed new and engaging educational resources to help youth design and implement environmental action projects;
  • Hosted webinars for educators and students across North America, East Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific to showcase innovative school-based projects designed to address deforestation and inspire others to take similar actions;
  • Supported youth to monitor rainforest lands through programs like Earthwatchers, and;
  • Provided ongoing guidance and support for community-based environmental action projects like Creating Reusuable Shopping Bags from Old Clothes.
Your donation has made it possible for TIG to strengthen the capacity of youth around the world to create environmental change in their communities. We are looking forward to growing our support for young global changemakers, and sharing their updates with you!
