(pollution/health/art) (Enabling Methodology- assumes that individuals have something interesting to say) • Interesting because despite having lived in the community for some time, a lot of us were learning this for the first time. • Sense of knowing the community- in knowing your community- we can be more in touch with our identities. • Helped us develop social consciousness in a community where many youth are apolitical and educationally underperforming • Crucial for youth; confidence/personal well being/school performace http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adobe-youth-voices/i-want-my-parents-back/
