Projects

Consistent with its action-oriented educational mission, Communecos and its predecessor YIKES have sponsored or engaged in projects that seek to understand and change the world toward a more environmentally sustainable and socially just future.  Projects have included seminars and workshops on alternative energy with students at the North Carolina School of Science and Math; green jobs training with the Durham Economic Resource Center, an ethnographic research project on the local food movements of Durham and three other locales in North Carolina, and student internships with students from UNC Chapel Hill.
