This past summer in Costa Rica, a group of 11 YCI volunteers participated in Earth Charter programming in Juanilama. Check out this great article that Po-Yi, a member of the group, wrote for the Earth Charter in Action’s website.
“In furthering community development and promoting safeenvironmental practices in Juanilama, our YCI team set up activities to encourage participatory, intergenerational, and intercultural dialogues among community members and us that were centered around the Earth Charter principles and values. Before this trip, I knew nothing about the Earth Charter, and I am thankful that YCI introduced this initiative to us through its programming. . .“
