“Tell me, I forget. Show me, I remember. Involve me, I understand.” ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb
Community Action Plans
The Community Action Plan (CAP) is the way that we ensure that all of the wonderful, creative ideas and passion of our youth are converted into inspired action. As part of any SERES program, we work with participants to bring together their concerns, visions and change-ideas into a plan for action that they with their peers will turn into real changes.
Participants learn to work through an asset-based community-driven development framework, focusing on the resources, human capital and local knowledge that they can draw on from their own community to complete their project.
These CAPs include projects such as clean-up campaigns, reforestation, biodiversity conservation, environmental education, community gardens for food security, sustainable building, youth environment committees and recycling projects.
We know that in this way, through local actions, we can achieve global impact.
