Watch Tokyo & NYC Kids Share a Message About Marine Litter, directed and edited by Cafeteria Culture's award winning Media Director, Atsuko Quirk, and produced by Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Fourth grade students from PS15 Patrick F. Daly Elementary School in Red Hook, Brooklyn and Hirai Elementary School in Edogawa Ward, Tokyo worked simultaneously on reducing local plastic litter that contributes to a global plastic marine pollution plight.

While President Trump was making the decision to abandon the Paris climate agreement, signed by nearly 200 countries, our Tokyo-NYC project students from Red Hook, Brooklyn -- a community devastated by Superstorm Sandy -- were taking climate-smart action, then sharing local knowledge and efforts with project-partners living opposite sides of the globe! These students gained valuable insight by learning from their young Tokyo project partners, participating in an international exchange of ideas about local, upstream solutions for a complex and escalating global plight of plastic marine pollution.
Cafeteria Culture needs your support now more than ever. The last two years, a significant portion of our school programming was funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2. We are not counting on this funding for the 2017-18 school year.
We need your donation of any size to continue to bring innovative and collaborative environmental and civic education to underserved NYC youth!
