YES Initiative

“YES” stands for Youth Ecology and Sustainability and that´s exactly what our new primary initiative is all about. We are going directly to the root of our environmental problems, which are intrinsically social, by placing the necessary tools in the hands of youth, the future leaders of, and participants in, society.
