During 2007, the program “We Seed the Future” was implemented, with the objective of educating children and youth to face global warming.

More than 20,000 children and 200 teachers in more than 150 schools throughout Ecuador were trained through these workshops, and each school received audio-visual material for working with the students.

Additionally the children drafted a "Letter for Life," a proposal that the children created to live in a world that is more healthy and just. Interviews with authorities were conducted throughout the country to commit their support in spreading the children’s proposals related to climatic change.
