The latest news, stories, and ideas from ACE and our students.
My name is Karina Chen and I am part of the Global Kids Human Rights Activist Project. We are advocating for implementation of green roofs on New York City public schools. We are enlisting the help of concerned citizens and officials; it is vital that everyone does their part. Not only do green roofs help decrease the overall temperature of the world, but they also help cool buildings that have them.

Having to use recycled or vintage materials for our outfits really made us think about how much our old clothes or just any old fabric can be turned into something new. Instead of just throwing away clothes we don’t wear anymore and buying new ones, we can alter them or make them into something completely new. The fashion show really inspired us to be more environmentally conscious with our fashion choices

Climate activism is important to me because I want justice for all people. We should not live in society where low-income communities or people of color are the most environmentally burdened.

In my nearly four years with ACE, I've never encountered two individuals more connected and invested in their students. The brilliance of this duo is their ability to lead by example, but most importantly, empower their students to take full responsibility for meetings, projects, and new initiatives.

At ACE, we talk a lot with students about what they can do after our ACE climate science and solutions presentation to begin confronting the global climate crisis. Sounds simple enough, right? Not so fast--the action team at Bronx Design and Construction Academy, lead by Nathaniel Wight, are changing the game...and making a seriously big impact.
