global youth environmentalists

The Pollination Project provides seed grants to young environmental activists, partnered with Levi Strauss & Co. and Earth Island Institute’s New Leaders Initiative. Young grant recipients planted fruit trees for the community in Kenya and school gardens in Malawi, and created an orangutan habitat in Indonesia. In India, youth organized a recycling project in villages in India with no garbage sites and distributed leftover food from universities to hungry people. Rooftop gardens flourished in Tripoli, Lebanon. A Google Science Fair motivated Kiara Nirghin, age 16, to invent an antidote for her drought-stricken country of South Africa.[i] She mixed orange peels and avocado skins to polymer to store water.
