The Eco-Huertos Program seeks to support the creation of organic and sustainable vegetable gardens in schools and communities throughout the Dominican Republic. Through ongoing field activities, the program bolsters the natural sciences curriculum in the schools.
The contest is divided into two categories: short films and public service announcements. With this contest, GFDD and FUNGLODE seek to promote environmental filmmaking as a platform to educate and raise awareness.
The ReCrearte Program aims to raise awareness of the 3Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle. The workshops also emphasize and demonstrate how recycling waste into art can empower individuals and communities alike.
As part of its mission to reach more communities, institutions and individuals around the country, the DR Environmental Film Festival organizes film screenings year-round, providing the opportunity to bring successful film programs to new and remote communities.
