Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: Every year, the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) hosts a football tournament for primary school students, promoting the importance of conservation and a clean environment.
This annual event, named the ‘TIDE Freshwater Cup’, unleashes the potential of young people as agents of change and environmental protection by engaging them in mini-projects to protect freshwater resources.
Since the project began in 2004, over 3,000 people have undertaken more than 150 mini-projects, resulting in more than 6,500 trees planted along waterways, more than 33,000 pounds of trash removed, 15 green spaces or organic gardens created, numerous environmental murals painted, two illegal dumpsites removed, and more than 3,000 people receiving environmental education from their peers.
