The Richmond Team Hasn’t Missed a Beat

Our weekly meetings have consisted of making individual and team vision boards, learning about plastic pollution, and much more

January hasn’t slowed down for the Earth Team interns at Richmond High School. We welcomed back our awesome interns in early January, after the schools broke out for 2 weeks at the end of December. Our team has kept busy this month with virtual weekly meetings, individual activities, and a month-long litter clean up. You can see what the Richmond team has been doing for the month of January below:

In an activity where interns could summarize specific topics we discussed last semester in any way they like, one group illustrated and explained Environmental Justice. This drawing was created by intern: Britney Cortez

Another group (for the same summarizing activity as above), chose to summarize the climate crisis in a story titled “Climate Crisis: The untold story of the Invisible Villain”. One excerpt from the story explains that:

“If we don’t stop this invisible villain the planet will be less hospitable making people, plants and animals slowly wither to die on the future dead earth. Be your own hero and help stop this madness by doing activities that help reduce greenhouse gas.”

Written by RHS interns: Kevin, Brenda, and Andrea
Interns brainstormed some positive ideas to effectively communicate the importance of environmental and sustainable living with community members, friends, and family. This is just a few of their great ideas!
While trying to continue virtual engagement, Earth Team staff had to get creative with a home-made trash sorting activity.

The next few months will be jam-packed with focusing on our interns professional development, hearing from guest speakers, learning about more environmental topics, as well as gaining momentum on our SITA project. We have no doubt that this will be another collaborative, fun and educational semester for the Richmond Team!
