Since 2002 we have had the pleasure to provide seminars, developed environmental education programs, and work with different educational institutions, private and public sectors that have contributed to build a culture of environmental awareness and most importantly develop concrete actions towards a more sustainable world.
We have engaged with more than 10,000 children, adults and seniors from Mexico and Canada in a wide diversity of hands-on learning activities to experience a sustainable lifestyle.
Beside our environmental education programs and the creation of handmade upcycled Art and crafts, we seek to provide a life changing experience for children in Canada as well as in Mexico by implementing the One for One Model.
For every upcycling workshop we provide in Canada, part of the proceeds are allocated to provide an equivalent workshop for a rural community in Mexico.
Building on this connection between Canada and Mexico, Ciclomanias has co-authored a bilingual children’s book about an iconic animal that links these two countries, the Monarch Butterfly (Lotli). This keystone species is used to raise awareness about its biology, environmental conservation and concrete actions that kids and families can take to protect them and the environment, prevent waste, and change behavior. The book has been read by children and adults to encourage systems thinking and to talk about how the concept of waste does not exist in nature.
