Happy New Year from the Young EcoLeaders!

By Yasmin and her team | The Iracambi Educators

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our wonderful donors and friends across the world! 

And may 2022 bring us health, happiness and many new adventures!

And as we sit here in the rainy rainforest, and plan for 2022, we hope you will forgive us if we start with a few reflections and updates on where we have come together, and the amazing things that your support has enabled us to do in 2021.

Here at Iracambi education is an integral part of everything we do.

We empower children and youth with the motivation, knowledge, skills and hands-on experience which enables them to  identify and tackle local and global environmental challenges.

Schoolkids come to Iracambi for their first encounter with the rainforest, and are encouraged to continue exploring and studying. Many of them continue to higher education - something that was largely unavailable to their parents - and are thus better positioned to break out of generational poverty.

Iracambi welcomes interns and researchers, and works with local families to restore forest cover on their farms to protect soils and water and combat climate change.

Our online courses for environmental leaders equip young people and adults from across Brazil to identify local challenges, adopt more sustainable lifestyles and make a real difference in their communities. With suppport from wonderful people like you, we've graduated over 100 environmental leaders.

 We´ve recently created an online course course for environmental educators, to be launched in early January, and we'll keep you posted on our progress.

Last, but not least, we held a highly succcessful virtual meeting with four middle schools based in Colorado. AND, after nearly two years, we were finally able to welcome 28 high school students for an unforgettable day's workshop in our rainforest campus. 

None of this would have been possible without your support, and we can´t wait to see where 2022 will take us! 

with love and so much appreciation from 

Yasmin and the Iracambi educators.
