Challenge

The lack of planetary consciousness and personal responsibility have led to lifestyles incompatible with Mother Earth. Without conceiving the planet as a living unit it is not possible to eliminate the root cause of climate change. Traditional education has not been able to solve this problem.

Solution

The project teaches the children that the planet should be loved and cared like a mother. They become part of the solution of climate change through a process that empower them to create conscious, healthy and sustainable lifestyles. They transform the school green areas into pollinating gardens to save the bees, while learning to work with the government and the local organizations in the process to become carbon neutral.

Long-Term Impact

240 children will be educated in conscious, healthy and sustainable lifestyles and will become teachers for their families and leaders of the conscious evolution. The school and high school "sweet gardens" will become an example of the power of collaboration. We will have the model to be replicated in the whole country and we are going to be able to share the statistics, the protocols and all the tools with other people ready to participate actively in the conscious evolution of Mother Earth.
