The goal of “I CAN – Design for Change” is to empower students to say “I CAN”, put their ideas into action to protect the environment, and inspire others by telling their own stories of change. “I CAN – Design for Change” attempts to achieve this by using four methodology steps: Feel, Imagine, Do, and Share. Following this theme, students from George Jackson Academy will identify and try to engage environmental problems in their classrooms, school, or communities. Students will develop creative solutions that can make a quick impact, and develop a plan of action to affect change. At the end of the program, the students submit their stories to the website of “Design for Change” through text, photos, video, or slideshows.
International Lasallian Institute for Sustainability of the Environment (ILISE) would like to encourage to all Lasallian schools to be involved in this international movement “I CAN – Design for Change”. Since there are almost 1,000 Lasallian schools distributed among 80 countries, a real impact on the world can be made by embracing this methodology!
