Green Bronx Machine: national health and wellness center at PS 55 | Stephen Ritz | TEDxManhattan

[ad_1]



Stephen’s uitgebreide student en gemeenschapsfamilie hebben meer dan 30.000 pond groenten verbouwd in de Bronx terwijl ze buitengewone academische prestaties leverden. Stephen, liefkozend bekend als America’s Favorite Teacher en The Pied Piper of Peas, is de oprichter van Green Bronx Machine en richt zijn energie en aandacht nu op de bouw van het National Health and Wellness Center op PS 55, een nationaal prototype STEM-faciliteit compleet met een overdekt verticale boerderij die 100 zakken boodschappen per week produceert en een ontwikkelingscentrum voor volwassen arbeidskrachten. Zijn studenten ontvingen onlangs de Witte Huischef Bill Yosses en de Clinton Foundation Global Ambassador Reed Alexander die groenten kookten die ze op school verbouwden. Stephen Ritz is een docent uit South Bronx die vindt dat studenten hun gemeenschap niet hoeven te verlaten om in een betere gemeenschap te leven, te leren en te verdienen. Zelfverklaarde CEO (Chief Eternal Optimist) van Bronx County, Stephen heeft generaties studenten verplaatst naar gebieden van persoonlijke en academische successen die ze zich nooit hadden kunnen voorstellen tijdens het terugwinnen en herbouwen van de Bronx. Deze lezing werd gegeven op een TEDx-evenement in het TED-conferentieformaat, maar onafhankelijk georganiseerd door een lokale gemeenschap. Meer informatie op http://ted.com/tedx

29 gedachten over “Green Bronx Machine: national health and wellness center at PS 55 | Stephen Ritz | TEDxManhattan”

  1. This talk is an infomercial, uses infomercial techniques, and should be called, "I am their teacher and they love me." In the short term, Stephen Ritz may have the best of intentions but in the long run what's the plan? The plan should be to end the perpetual state of poverty that exist in the Bronx, but to look at this talk the listener recieves the opposite message; a message that is not subtle in anyway. A message literally painted on stone–a mural that promotes the idea that people from Puerto Rico desire to live in a destroyed neighborhood forever (earlier he reference a bullet proof bodega), even if they have to live in a tent. Moreover, it says that Puerto Ricans desire this destiny for their grandchildren….WOW! Is that why Mr Ritz uses the same pictures of the same kids, Jose and Omar that he used back in 2012? Is that why he reference the same problems as the problems in 2012―oversexed kids? Is that why when these kids go to the Whitehouse they visit the kitchen and not the oval office to meet the President? Is that why his low threshold goal for these kids is for them to learn to use food stamps or achieve post secondary education (high school) or just a living wage? Is that the future for these kids? Well, it's certainly not the future Mr. Ritz has in store for himself, no, for himself he sees connections to the Whitehouse, visits to the Pope, and a future winner of a teacher award. So, yes, Mr. Ritz is their teacher and they do love him, but does he love them or does he love the idea of more of them? After all, without masses of new poor, what will become of Mr. Ritz's NGO and the social recognition associated with his NGO? So, I applaud the idea of teaching horticulture to these youth, but only if these lesson are a platform for these children to soar away from poverty, such that they will have the financial means to return to their beloved Bronx in order to gentrify it.

  2. i brought this idea up to a middle school principal  once. his concern was the food suppliers that had the contract would be mad. the kids wouldn't be able to eat it at school if they grew it.

  3. Home from work sitting in my bedroom alone. I hear such words and see the passion and dedication one man can produce, In my bedroom alone I found my self clapping. Who does that alone. Everyone that is this impressed I guess. Steven Ritz Not a farmer? Maybe "He is the Farm".,

  4. Me ha encantado. Algo que llevamos diciendo en españa mucho tiempo pero con cara triste y nadie nos hace caso. H

    Hay que ponerle entusiasmo al cambio y, como dice al final del video ¡SI SE PUEDE!

  6. The real master creates masters, not followers. His whole effort is to make you independent of him – so you can depend on yourself. This guy is indeed a great master.
