Teenagers are facing the largest mental health crisis we have ever seen. Climate chaos is filling our kids with anxiety and fear of an uncertain future. They don’t understand what is causing climate chaos and how to solve this problem. Education in Permaculture Design is one vital remedy. It arms our youth with the tools and knowledge to create solutions that can heal the planet. Through learning Permaculture Design, teens become confident and empowered in STEM-related skills, which opens up pathways to professions and gives teens hope for the future and the role they can play in it.
With your help, we will be able to create a universal high school curriculum that can be taught in high schools across the U.S. This will enable thousands of children to gain the knowledge they need to build their future careers and create solutions that have a lasting impact on the current climate chaos that affects all of us.
Graduates of this interactive and experiential program will grow into being conscious eco citizens and/or study STEM careers in college because they want to be part of the solution.
We’re asking you to invest what you can in this unique and innovative high school program with us! Your support of our efforts to bring Permaculture Design Education to even more schools in NYC and across the country is essential. If you’d like to play a role in turning scared and anxious teens into future-conscious eco-citizens, scientists, and engineers who have a focus on creative solutions to climate chaos, then join in and invest with us!
Sharing is caring, please help us spread the word as every effort made is a contribution in itself. Below is our proposal for how we will accomplish our shared goals.
In gratitude, Monica Ibacache. CEO, Beyond Organic Design
