Empower a generation to act for the planet
Climate change, biodiversity loss, soils and oceans pollution are significant threats to our planet and especially to generations Y and Z who will be facing the most the many consequences (estimated at 2030 for climate change and 2050 for plastic pollution in the oceans notably).
Yet, it can be difficult to feel concerned by these threats, often perceived as distant and intangible.
At The Green Seeds Project, we are aware of this difficulty. But we are also convinced that young generations hold a real power of influence thanks to their consumption choices and their global influence on social media.
We are equally persuaded that the environment, sustainability and overall the protection of nature is everyone's business. And that every student, whatever their school, social economic background or future career can and should be made aware of the issues facing our planet in order to become a powerful vector for change or how we like to call it: a "green seed" for the planet!
So what do we propose? Interventions within classes of secondary and higher education on a range of concrete topics (fashion, plastic and food) linked to daily consumption as well as inter-school activities. The goal is to give EVERY single youth the will to develop new habits and to make them aware of the incredible power of action that they hold. Finally, we want them to realise that sustainability represent a viable professional opportunity!
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
