The Greenworks program is continuing to grow. We are currenlty working on revamping the curriculum to better serve a multi-lingual audience with multiple technical capabilities. We aim to have this work complete by later this year so that we can link our Indonesian students and teachers with similar classrooms in Brazil, Ukraine, and Scotland for the diplomacy games. To do so, we've been working with two enthusiastic students in California who are helping design the digital infrastructure to help us better offer the curriculum and environmental diplomacy game.
In other news, we've won a small grant from the US Department of State and Global Ties US to further develop the Greenworks program in the direction of the arts as a medium for environmental education. We'll be funding student groups to clean up and beautify the local drainage canals to help control the outflow of plastic pollution and organic garbage into the ocean. This endeavor continues to build on the successful Greenworks student projects, incorporating the garbage can project and composting business into a broader endeavor on Ternate to change behaviors and attitudes about garbage and its management. More updates in a few months!
