Greetings all,

I hope that you are all staying safe in these trying times as you prepare for the holiday season.  Science Voices has been hard at work on a couple of major projects, including the Agavi digital learning platform and Greenworks, a program stemming from the Green Ambassadors trial run we conducted this summer with our Indonesian students.

This summer, we accepted four Indonesian student groups into the Green Ambassadors program.  We were disappointed that only one group decided to participate in the summer session.  However, we are happy to report the group who participated in the summer session was able to participate in the diplomacy games with American students at Arizona State University, where they connected over the problem of plastic pollution and were able to share stories and perspectives across the Pacific.

After the diplomacy games, the team submitted a proposal for dealing with plastic pollution in their community in Ternate.  We are currently reviewing the proposal and working with the team to improve the project so that it is impactful and sustainable.  More about how that project is going in the next update!

Until then, stay safe during this holiday season, with well wishes for the new year!

Hello friends,

I would like to once again thank you for your contributions to this project in a time of crisis.  I know that asking for support and gifting it were not easy in April during a time of much uncertainty.  I am deeply grateful for what you contributed.

Over the spring and summer, we have been busy developing the Environmental Ambassador program and determining the shape it will hopefully take in years to come.  I am happy to report that we have accepted our first group of students into the program for a summer pilot version.  Over the next few weeks, these Indonesian students will be working with American students to better understand environmental issues that have global impacts, including climate change and plastic pollution.  After the completion of this educational portion of the program in early August, we will be working with the students to develop local projects that will address important local environmental issues that the students have decided to tackle.  The funding you have provided for this program will be used by these students to make meaningful changes on-location.

I look forward to bringing you more updates as these projects unfold, as well as profiles about the students your contributions have directly impacted.

Stay safe!

Lev
