This description of Vanessa LeBourdais's work was prepared when Vanessa LeBourdais was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2019.
Vanessa’s new idea is to cultivate real life ‘Planet Protectors’ by empowering young people to be environmental change agents within their family units. Through joy, humor, storytelling and arts-based play, Vanessa holistically cultivates lasting changemaker identities through the public-school system in partnership with municipalities.
