Youth Outreach for Green

Youth culture PLUS youth inheritance PLUS youth action. Thoughtful youth are getting involved in saving their way of life, their environment and are reaching out. Youth outreach prepares them for participaton.

Our youth will inherit this world, and many young adults...and children ... already realize this and are taking action.

NRDC's Its Your Nature Youth Outreach

One organization that is helping outreach to youth by helping them get educated, mobilized and connected is the NRDC -- the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Kelly Cox runs the Natural Resources Defense Council's youth program, Its Your Nature: ItsYourNature.org. If you need a peek into how to communicate with youth, take a look at this website and community. They have a different language, a different look, and different engagement opportunities.

Global Inheritance for Youth Outreach

Global Inheritance: www.globalinheritance.org Located in the heart of Hollywood, California, Environmentaland is only a few steps away from a major subway stop, bus terminal, and the 101/134 Freeways.

Once you walk through the doors, Environmentaland has something for everyone. Our programming will target kids, adults, students, artists, professionals, tourists, teachers and even your pets.

Global Inheritance's office inside a downtown Los Angeles warehouse is uber hip and ultra economical. The office is subdivided into cubicles by rows of wood, glass and corrugated metal sheds.

  • Artist decorated recycling bins
  • Stickers to decorate a skateboard: the price of the sticker was one recyclable bottle or can
  • Bicycle-powered cellphone charging stations
  • Life-size games: For example, the group got $20,000 from Virgin to put on a life-size "Causes versus Cures" chess game at the Virgin Festival music event in Toronto. Human volunteers were outfitted to look like "causes," such as an oil derrick and a piece of coal, and "cures" including a windmill and a solar panel.

"People have lost their sense of discovery, and Environmentaland is determined to put it back by inspiring individuals to reexamine the basics and get excited about the opportunities that lay ahead. Everyone has potential, sometimes they just need a little push or an Environmental theme park to lead the way," they state on their website.

Global Inheritance was born in 2002 after Ritz expanded from producing socially conscious T-shirts to decorating recycling bins. In a bid to get the receptacles noticed, Ritz encouraged his coterie of artists, musicians, extreme sports athletes and celebrities such as Hunter S. Thompson to redesign bins in wild and unexpected ways.

Youth Outreach

Youth outreach is most effective when youth are at the heart of it, planning for their priorities, their language, their way of living their lives.

Not all organizations can handle the vast differences in expectations and energy level... that is required to communicate effectively with youth, but we all have shared concerns and can support youth organizations that carry forward the message of natural resources restoration and responsible behaviors.
