Streetfilms: After School With Livable Streets Education

This spring, Livable Streets Education
worked with teacher Tim Devaney at De La Salle Academy in Manhattan to
bring real world issues into the classroom and the classroom into
the real world. This after school program allowed students to explore,
observe and interact with the streets and public spaces around their
school, and provided firsthand lessons in science, sustainability,
civics and language arts. Watch as they learn — and teach — on the subjects of street safety, street beautification and air quality.
