Children´s Land (Tierra de niños-TINI-)

Another project is the Children´s Land (Tierra de niños-TINI-) which works to foster environmental conscience, and empower children between the ages of 6 and 12 by giving them a plot of land and helping them to care and manage it during a 12 month period. Through workshops and activities that focus on environmental education, artistic expression, children´s rights and the proper use of natural resources, the project seeks to promote in children an active citizenship and give them the necessary skills to make an appropriate use of their natural resources and act as agents of development and change within their communities.

Maribel Marquez is the co-ordinator of the project.
