What If Children Could Imagine A Better Future?
Children are extraordinary changemakers, they have a great capacity and willingness to create a better world through vision, art and practical, do-able DIY environmental projects despite the social and environmental challenges they face today all over the world. They only need the start-up tools; Information and Skills that open a world of possibilities. In a short time they learn, share and become passionate about generating their own projects, creating community and support around their ideas and reaching out to national and international networks that link the local to the global.
Ekohabitat has an ongoing project called “Children’s Vision Councils” which prepares children for participation in local and global matters that affect their present and their future. That project has generated the “Guardianes del Futuro”, “Children’s Torch of Hope”, “Consejo de Visiones-Secundarias de Chalmita”, “Yo Importo Mexico” and many local projects created by the youth. Helen spent two years training Indigenous and Inner City children in four states in Mexico so they could participate as delegates to the World Summit of Children in San Francisco and the General Assembly during the UN 50th Anniversary in NY.
Children are our continuum,
our living evolution
worthy of our investment.
