Join us on April 19th at New Roads School in Santa Monica, Los Angeles where Anna Valer Clark (founder of Cuenca Los Ojos) and Rodrigo Corona Sierra (Executive Director of Borderlands Restoration Network) will lead a day of presentation and conversation about Healing the earth: a journey from barren land to thriving ecosystems.
And after 30, 40 years, it’s been more than 30 years now, the hills are becoming sponges, and we have water flowing everywhere. Anna Valer Clark
The work of these two extraordinary environmentalists reflect how interconnected relationships are vital for sustainability and thriving. Their work occurs in an intersectional treasure trove. Their organizations work at the border of Arizona and Sonora, Mexico (one of the most critical migratory corridors in the world for animals). Its focus is on restoring depleted lands and reintegrating water and wildlife.
Their messages carry hope for healing the planet. The habitat has also seen a revival of jaguars that have been reported on by National Geographic.

New Roads School created the Climate Changemaker Teen Film online festival to give middle school and high school students (10-18 years old) a space to express themselves through short films that explore climate change-related topics or call-to-action films that inspire viewers to make a change.
This year, they have received over 206+ films from filmmakers around the world. 22 films were chosen from countries such as the United States of America, Argentina, Portugal, Italy, Australia, Ireland, Macedonia, Austria, and Brazil. 5 of those selected films are by New Roads animation students!
Winning films will be announced during the festival event.
