Summary

203 children from schools in high-risk communities in Costa Rica invite you to be part of the answer to save Mother Earth. Through yoga and meditation, they are learning and teaching to create conscious, healthy and sustainable lifestyles. To scale the project around the country, declared Champion of the Earth 2019 by UN, yoga and meditation were declared of public interest; the project was declared of educational interest; and, the Ministry of Education signed a Work Plan with Gaia Foundation.

Challenge

The lack of planetary consciousness and personal responsibility have led to lifestyles incompatible with life. This leads to climate change and to create international programs to mitigate the problem. But without teaching children to conceive the planet as a living unit, and to create conscious, healthy and sustainable lifestyles, is not possible to eliminate the root cause of the problem. Traditional education was unable to do it, so we create and test a new model, endorsed by the UN.

Solution

With your help, we teach the children that the planet should be loved and cared like a mother and that they are part of the solution to climate change. We use a proven methodology that includes information, yoga, and meditation that empowers and teaches them how to create conscious, healthy and sustainable lifestyles, and we create the protocols to be able to replicate the program throughout the whole country, the only one in the world that declares meditation and yoga of public interest.

Long-Term Impact

Our children are becoming teachers for their families and leaders of the conscious answer to climate change. Our schools are becoming an example. We are creating a model to be replicated in the whole country, and Costa Rica, declared Earth champion 2019 by the UN, is in the best place to share the protocols and other tools with people ready to participate in other countries. As we all know, only a transformative education like Yo Soy la Respuesta can change history and mitigate climate change.
