When i was in Elementary school i had two very good "green" teachers. Thought us respect and beauty of the nature and also made us recreate small natural enviroment and things as such.
We have problem about globalization, global warming, recycling, waste and many others. We are facing it with probably more consciousness about it than in the past but with less deep and true care for, that i think it might be due also lack of education. I think involving school and their young students recreating natural enviroment would create not only a better future for everyone but also a NBM. Starting from the small comunities, students and their teachers could dedicate hours of their young educational time recreating natural areas and green areas that could be then used by the whole community. Collecting waste, learning about nature, plants, trees and animals. Giving life to animals and natural enviroment as i did with my teachers is something will be never forgotten. State and private as well could finance such a project. Not only scientist of many fields could partecipate and create educational project inside the areas but also university and older students could contribute. it will connect students and parents. any generation will be involved and educated. Many more ideas would pop up.. as State or municipal worker getting paid to neaten the area or creating a educational tour with small entry fee

i am not an expert in business field or any involved in order to get Government finance or private/donation so i will be glad of any suggestion on how to support and recreate a sustainable model that could also get running by itself in a short time. thank you
