Welcome to the XXXX community of practice! My name is Jason and I’m a community manager here at Philanthropy University.
Please use this topic to introduce yourselves to everyone else in the community. What is your name? Where do you live? Where do you work? What is your role? Why did you choose to join this community?
Greetings all...I truly hope that this board is still being used and monitored...I am based in Kingston and working through a few non profits here in Jamaica...
GREENcamp an interactive hands -on day camp held in the summer for the last 10 years that encourages environmental awareness and teaches children strategies for sustainable living to help combat the effects of climate change. Our deepest desire is to empower youth to recognize their role as change agents and the impact that their daily choices they make at home school and in their communities can have on the Planet that we all share.
I have also partnered with Plant Jamaica since 2014 as a volunteer, project manager and education and training facilitator. We educate and train both teachers and students from a permaculture perspective and install food gardens in schools and communities across Jamaica.
I have also been a member of the Meatless Monday Jamaica board for the past year and look forward to our official launch later this year.
