WHY THE CHALLENGE

This awareness campaign and challenge will help our Foundation (NxtWave) research best practices to rate and set standards for consumer education, and build a digital platform that gives access to inclusive destinations, products and services with the best credibility in protecting the environment.

THEORY OF CHANGE

OUTPUT

65 Black Teachers and Teachers of Color from 23 rural communities registered to design environmentally-friendly activities to immerse students in learning experiences. 

 

Top projects received $500 grants in Lexington, KY, Creshaw, Los Angeles, CA and Atlanta, GA. We also surveyed and interviewed all participants to gauge the pilot’s efficacy.

 

 

SHORT-TERM OUTCOME

Teachers found our partnership with Data Writing Stories valuable in using climate-related datasets to plan students’ immersions, and the mini-grants were crucial in removing barriers for planning and implementing learning experiences. 

 

LONG-TERM OUTCOME

All participants reported positive changes in behavior, with a newfound motivation to embed equity in their immersions for all living creatures and take action towards a more sustainable neighborhood that also required engaging their families during school breaks.

 

 

Reaching New Populations

We know that our planet is under unprecedented stress and that the patterns of production and consumption that we have been using are no longer sustainable. Efforts have been made to reverse trends that have near depleted the earth’s resources, but a way forward is not clear. Deep Data Detectives has been launched to enable a new generation of citizens who can take action in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Data.  Together, we must help preserve our environment and at the same time, foster growth, decent jobs, and eradicate poverty.
