Ecolibrium - Build a Virtual Laboratory to Monitor Climate and Health in Your Community
Loisaida, Inc. will assemble a youth led inter-disciplinary coalition we call the Eco-Action Team who will work collaboratively to raise awareness on environmental justice issues and develop innovative solutions to share their experiences online through the creation of digital media. The project will bring youth together through hands-on learning and self-guided activities and training in-the-field, in-the-classroom and online.
We are putting youth at the center of the conversation about climate, health and environmental justice. The focus is on process over product in a manner to build confidence and courage to approach the unfamiliar.
Which of the following issues does your project address?
1. Issue 1 - Addressing Mental Health
2. Issue 2 - Preparation for College and/or Career

Through purpose driven activities, facilitated learning and self-guided research youth participants will be encouraged to address environmental problems that could be directly affecting them.
