EcoLearners Point Rush!
A Month Long Points rush competition to save ecosystems!
Each competitor worked on impacting their ecosystems, and by doing so, got points!
This was through any way participants wanted - cleanups, planting, etc. After doing the task and sending pictures, participants gained points and a leaderboard was posted weekly!
The highest point earning activities were planting trees or cleaning up litter from a local ecosystem for 20 points. Winners won all sorts of prizes, including tote bags, gift cards, ecofriendly stationary, and more!
The Minecraft Event was the best way to start creating a greener city everyone can live in that works WITH our ecosystems. Ecotopia gave youth an opportunity to create a working blueprint of a sustainable eco-community world! We sent this model out to bigger companies construction companies of what we should be seeing, and together we will make a change!
The story of Ecotopia: once there was a beautiful city called Ecotopia that was beautiful, until large companies and people started getting greedy for resources, ultimately killing Ecotopia. Your task is to rebuild Ecotopia and create what our world should look like.
The Ecotopia Competition surrounded the theme of who can build the most eco-friendly and ecosystem supporting infrastructure that is necessary for a city! This can be a park, a building, or whatever! Winners got gift cards, eco-friendly EcoLearners merch, and eco-friendly products!
Why did we build this model? We used this to work with other small startups, construction companies, and organizations to build what our society should look like.
Spread your Ecosystem.
The video contest was a great way to learn and spread education on ecosystems and saving them.
The task was to create thirty seconds - 2-minute video discussing a problem relating to ecosystems and food. The video needed to include current solutions, and your own possible idea to solve them! We had some amazing submissions and in the process of judging them!
EcoLearners Book Club Meeting
We read "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster" by Bill Gates! Not only does this book hold important and eye-opening information, but it also provides it in a way that's easier to understand. It also gives a great way to analyze privelage and environmental poverty.
We know that setting aside time to read is difficult in our busy schedules, but the good thing is that this was a really chill event! People brought snacks, blankets, and even were on their bed. We had have questions from all over the book to discuss, but focused on mainly the first five and the last two chapters. Our discussion on this book was so fun! Amazing points were brought up! Looking forward to the next book club.
