Climate Kids- Mexico, led by program manager Profesora Martha Aidé Escalante Garcia, hosted a “Dia de los Mares” event on September 28, 2017 at Playas de Tijuana. The event was part of Tijuana River Action Month (TRAM) to benefit the Tijuana River Watershed. Students from five schools in the Playas area participated in a beach clean up and were led by Climate Kids Ambassadors through 18 workshops about climate change and environmental stewardship. The event concluded with a special Pasarela presentation featuring recycled clothing, drawing in a huge crowd and inspiring students to reuse materials to show artistic expression.
The event reached more than 1,000 local youth, bringing attention to the issues associated with pollution of water basins, climate change, and the importance of conservation. We were inspired to see so many passionate students at the event who took the initiative to lead all of the workshops covering climate science, storytelling and art. Our Baja partners are doing amazing work!
