Planting the seeds of change in the next generation

Reforesting with students in Totonicapan
EcoLogic's reforestation project in Totonicapán Forest, Guatemala takes into account the land, the community and, in particular, the next generation that will eventually be the stewards on the ancient land. EcoLogic's partner, ArtCorps is a nonprofit that focuses on the arts as a way to educate and foster environmental conservation. Together we have been able to engage the youth in the area and promote the protection of the forest that has been called home by their families for generations.
Narrated by children, the video below, “Story of Youth Leaders in Conservation” follows the creative learning process as they are introduced to technology and art and develop leadership. Through this cross-generational project, traditional conservation stories and practices from community elders are documented and retold by middle school students.
