My Community, Our Earth: Geographic Learning for Sustainable Development

encourages and promotes youth engagement in using geographic tools and concepts to address challenges in their communities.

Activities support individual projects at the middle school, secondary school, and university levels to advance geographic learning and to help demonstrate various approaches to sustainable development.  Free online resources and materials are provided through the program, and individuals and groups are encouraged to submit their projects to be displayed in the MyCOE Youth-Led Project Gallery.  In addition, the partners and organizers arrange special initiatives in particular regions of the world or around a particularly important theme or event, to raise awareness of the importance of geography and GIS as effective instruments for sustainable development to students, communities, policy makers, decision makers, and others.

On these pages you can be inspired by  MyCOE Youth-Led Projects.  Or you can learn more about MyCOE Regional Initiatives in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and the Middle East, as well as Global Exchanges among all of these regions.  Consider submitting your own project!

 

 

Have you or a young person or group you know created an innovative or interesting solution to a sustainable development challenge in your community? Tell us about it so we can share it with others around the world.
