Hi Merna!

Thank you for posting this project! It is awesome that you want to help people adjust to changing seasons. Many people suffer when their agriculture is destroyed by the environment and can struggle with hunger and poverty. Tourism is also heavily affected by the changing of seasons which can affect the industry and economy of an area. I’m excited that you found Peace First and are starting a project that hits on the exact same ideas that our team has for its youth users! I’m glad that you are taking action against it! Tell me more about why you chose this injustice to focus on.

As you’re working through the questions in the Understand phase of your project, please don’t hesitate to ask any questions that come up! And you can check out the Peacemaking Tools for a full set of resources: https://www.peacefirst.org/peacemaking-tools.

Here are a few awesome projects on our platform that focus on environmental issues. I encourage you to check them out and comment on the ones that resonate for you--start a conversation and share ideas!

I encourage you to interview members of the community that are being affected by seasonal change. How do agricultural based communities survive? Is there access to resources during these changes? Do people have a way of coping with the change? How are their day to day lives affected?

Also, here are some resources I recommend looking into for help/inspiration for your project:

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0959378094900299
https://www.livescience.com/8639-change-seasons-affects-animals-humans.html

I hope that these resources are useful! This work is so important--Thank you for what you're doing! Let me know if you have any questions or need support in thinking about your next steps. :) I'm excited to support you however possible, and to watch this project grow!

Best,
Jenna
