EcoLogic is working with community members to not only reforest the centuries-old Totonicapán forest, but to prevent deforestation in the future. As part of the project, EcoLogic, along with local partners, recently launched “Green Week” in coordination with non-profit, ArtCorps that uses art to strengthen understanding of culture and environmental conservation.
Traditional Mayan ceremonies, recycling contests, music, poetry, and puppet plays were all part of the week-long drive to promote ecological traditional memory through the arts and the preservation of the forest. Also, local artists and community organizations sponsored drawing and poetry contests aimed to show children the importance of conservation. All these activities were communicated to the communities through television and radio programs.
