This description of Ewa Smuk Stratenwerth's work was prepared when Ewa Smuk Stratenwerth was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000.
    Ewa is pioneering an educational program that addresses the growing divide between urban and rural populations in Poland. By bringing urban children and their parents into depressed rural areas for hands-on environmental education, by harnessing public funds to improve the quality of rural education, Ewa is helping reverse the destructive self-conceptions that plague rural populations and building understanding between citizens of urban and rural areas.
