Project World School gets involved
On February 23 and 25, ten teens from Project World School teamed up with our staff to learn and participate in some of our ongoing projects.
Over the course of the two days, the group got involved with fish and turtle identification, beach zoning for nesting activities on Half Moon Bay and a trash cleanup on the ironshore, or rocky point, to the north of Akumal beach.
“It was amazing to see such dedicated, curious and enthusiastic young adults from around the world who are eager to learn and want to contribute to making our world a better place,” noted a CEA staff member who worked with the teens.
Not only did the teens leave CEA with a newfound knowledge of field work and less plastic and marine debris on its shores, but they also left CEA with an in-kind donation of two GoPro cameras to help support our ongoing field work.
To the participating teens (Justyna, Erin, Katie, Dylan, Aloys, Sydney, Gianna, Aria, Austin, Lorene) and to the mom and son co-organizers (Lainie + Miro) of Project World School, from the bottom of hearts,
We wish you all well on your next adventures—wherever they may be.

Project World School was created to inspire others to learn from the world, particularly to those who are homeschooled or unschooled. Its aim is to co-create a dynamic learning community through retreats based in various parts of the world that help participants push boundaries, challenge thoughts, grow, learn and connect with each other and their surrounding environment.
