On February 12, the 8th anniversary of Dorothy Stang’s death, the Rainforest Alliance (www.rainforest-alliance.org) partnered with the NGO Education Committee to present an event during the United Nations Commission on Social Development. Dorothy would have loved to hear elementary school students from Newark, NJ, speak about their communication via Skype and sharing of art with students from Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala. Together they participate in the Rainforest Alliance educational program, studying environmental conservation with an interdisciplinary approach. Rainforest Alliance helps young people understand how their everyday actions affect ecosystems across the planet.
