Podcast: The Bronx is Blossoming!

In the summer of 2018 CUP, in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), partnered with Teaching Artist Hugo Rojas and public high school students from around the South Bronx to investigate who has access to nature and who decides. Katie Lan, one of CUP's 2018 summer college interns, produced this podcast that follows the students on their journey.

Students rapped about nature, created stop-motion animations, stenciled the area with spray chalk, conducted community surveys, interviewed key stakeholders, and used WCS’s Visionmaker.nyc to create digital renderings of what nature in the Bronx could look like in the future. The crew used art and design to break down the information they gathered and teamed up with designer Kevin Cadena to create a website to teach others what they learned and share their visions for nature’s future in the South Bronx!

The website will debut at a public launch event at the end of September. Stay tuned for more updates!
