Ashoka Fellow
This description of Joaquín Felipe Leguía Orezzoli's work was prepared when Joaquín Felipe Leguía Orezzoli was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Joaquín Leguia is redefining environmental education as a community experience, moving lessons from the school to the jungle. By setting aside areas of the forest for youth-management projects, he incorporates children into the global sustainability conversation at the most crucial stage of their personal development.
