Rescuing communities with mimic activities

by Organizacion de Educacion Ambiental, A.C.

Summary

In Mexico, the lack of social & environmental public policies continues to drag the country into a severe crisis that no doubt has its origin in the lack of education. In addition, it has been severely affected by the new structural reforms that have neglected the possibility of learning a citizen culture that respects others. We believe that the solution is at the root of society, hence the need to educate the population with proven innovative methods successful in other countries as Bogota.

Challenge

The city of Mexico faces huge social, environmental and pricipally problems of neighborhood coexistence. For more than 20 years we have been observing the deterioration of the public space due to canine fecalism, visual pollution, garbage, noise, bad attitude, lack of road safety that affect coexistence. Considering the success that the project had in Bogota, we are confident that replicating it in Mexico City can be very successful. Innovative education is the only way to rescue this problem.

Solution

With a team of mimes we seek to build spaces of human dignity, with the wealth and longing for a better life that exists in each person and their community, to structure specific intervention models that generate a community social conscience from a culture of harmony and respect in the daily coexistence that today do not exist. We will work together to form a new code of respect, dignity, identity, pride and belonging as the public conscience through mimic actions to dignify public space.

Long-Term Impact

In alliance with Iniciativa Resustenta AC, Mexican experts in the model applied by Bogota through the performing arts in the public space, we are confident that it is a feasible method to transform environment & neighborhood coexistence. We will start with a team of 40 mimes intervening street by street, school by school, parks, museums, raising awareness in a fun way but with high impact in the change of behavior. The colony has 150,000 families & neighborhood committees very participatory
