2019-2020 Mission STATEMENT
This year Girls Build Lennox Academy consists of 17 Latina members who can see that what we build, truly makes a difference. We are choosing to focus on promoting and supporting how you can change little things in your life to help diminish the effects of climate change. The way we will achieve this is by joining the movement of already empowered youth through #howdareyou #climateaction #climatechange and similar hashtags. We’ll become stronger action oriented activists by supporting, interviewing and advertising environmental conscience projects that our school is doing, making educational videos/vlogs for social media that show team members experiment with going one week without any plastic or trash and by teaching our community how to compost. We’d also like to pursue free opportunities like water filtration system installations and help other schools take advantage of these opportunities too. This project is very much needed since we are experiencing a climate crisis and not many people are aware that small changes in our daily lives can really make a difference. This project can help inform a lot of people and show different ways they can help the environment . In conclusion, in order to affect change, we need to start with ourselves. As global citizens, it’s our responsibility to also embrace the United Nations Goals for Sustainable Development and by focusing on goal 13, climate change and action, we would show people how they can change their lifestyle and daily habits to help the climate crisis and the environment.
