April's Challenge from Planting the Seeds
Project Green Schools is honored to have our PGS Advisory Board Member, Jill Sylvester a licensed mental health counselor and author, providing monthly strategies and tips for our mental health.

Ground Yourself

1) How can you feel more relaxed and grounded in your body this month? Challenge yourself to check in on a daily basis to notice when you might need to get excess energy out of your head and back into your feet. Some ways to do that are: Stand up, take a deep breath and then move your feet like windshield wipers into the earth. Pay attention to how you feel. Notice the redistribution of energy flowing down into your legs, allowing you to feel better.

2) Another way to ground yourself is to repeat the affirmation: I am safe 10-15 times in a row. This tells your brain a different story, so your body experiences better feelings. Try it and see.

3) Take your emotional temperature every day this month (a few times a day is even better). Ask yourself how you are doing. If you don't feel grounded, if you don't feel okay, the next best step is to take action. This allows you to gain back control of your body and mind.

Invitation to 2022 World Youth Conference on Earth Day
Climate Change Task Force is a youth-led nonprofit organization dedicated to uniting the global youth in the fight against climate change.

In the past year, we were able to contact hundreds of high school environmental clubs throughout the US, reach more than 7K followers on our social media, and host semi-annual online conferences attended by young people from Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, and the US.

Our main goal is to have more than 4 million young people around the world take the Climate Change Task Force pledge, which suggests that they become vegetarian, drive electric vehicles, use solar energy, and avoid air travel. Additionally, we have created our own climate change pop song, educational curriculum for kids, and hosted multiple successful conferences that featured renowned speakers.

Our next conference is taking place on April 22, 2022 and will feature guest speakers from Stanford University, vegan chefs, and young climate activists from around the world. We hope to see you there! If interested, please RSVP HERE
Project Green Schools Partners with Clean Planet Project
Clean Planet Project is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to encourage outdoor conservation, volunteerism, and teamwork in support of a cleaner future for our planet. Josh Rands and Mik Kauma founded the organization in June of 2020 in Colorado, and there are now volunteers around the world picking up litter with their Litter CleanUp app.

The app makes it easy for anyone to volunteer outside at any time, anywhere. It automatically verifies your cleanup submissions, tracks your progress, and even allows you to share your cleanups with friends and connect with other volunteers. There is no application process, time commitment, or dedicated meeting spot as a Clean Planet Project volunteer. You can CleanUp while taking your dog for a walk, invite friends along, go early in the morning or later in the day, spend 10 minutes or 10 hours.... whatever makes you happy and fulfilled! Simply get outside and pick up some litter with the app :)
