Rethink Green focuses on celebrating sustainability through artistic creation. By targeting grade school age children, we introduce sustainably habits from an early age that can develop into a lifestyle and influence adults around them.
Our program integrates three components: a website in which recycled art projects and techniques can be shared and celebrated; a school curriculum that teaches the why and how behind a sustainable lifestyle and provides the real-life space for engagement; and an art exhibit for display and appreciation. Like the biological principle of the Central Dogma, in which DNA becomes RNA and then functional proteins, we provide information-rich platforms that, through collaboration with teachers, artists, the local government and students, can be synthesized into action.
By giving Parisians agency over creating a sustainable Paris for the future, we empower them to see a green lifestyle as more than just a chore, but as a source of beauty.
