About the design: Hosted by Exit Art, Green Patriot Posters Camp (NYC) gave sixteen youth participants the chance to learn about cities and sustainability. The students designed posters, exhibited at Exit Art, that encouraged citizens to participate in building a sustainable economy. They also learned how to create campaigns to send their messages out into the world.  Part of an ongoing series of student workshops.  Get in touch if you are interested in hosting/organizing.  In collaboration with The Human Impacts Institute.

"It was very exciting to co-develop and lead the Green Patriot Posters Camps with the Canary Project. The camps provided opportunities for youth to become intensively immersed in developing  creative outreach materials about environmental issues. Partnering with local artists and other groups really enabled the students to both relate global issues to their communities and to engage fellow community members in promoting healthy communities." - Tara DePorte
