Impact and Results

Since February 2020, we started with the first phase to give trainings to 25 young people from Costa Rica. We already did 2 out of 6 trainings and they are working in their formative research.

Right now, we are working with volunteers from 5 diferent organizations, Raleigh Costa Rica, Youth Red Cruise Costa Rica, Association Guides and Scouts Costa Rica, National Net of Rural Youth and the National Assembly of the Young Person Costa Rica.

After the trainings, all together are going to design, implement and evaluate a national enviromental campaign.
