Rethink Green focuses on celebrating sustainability through artistic creation. By targeting grade school age children, we introduce sustainable habits from an early age that can develop into a lifestyle and influence adults around them.
Our program integrates three components: a website to share recycled art projects and techniques; a curriculum that teaches the why and how behind a sustainable lifestyle; and an art exhibit. Like the biological principle of the Central Dogma, in which DNA becomes RNA and then functional proteins, we provide information-rich platforms that, through collaboration with teachers, artists, the local government and students, can be synthesized into action.
By giving Parisians agency over creating a sustainable Paris for the future, we empower them to see a green lifestyle as more than just a chore, but as a source of beauty.
