Unlike Youth-to-Youth and the Green Road Show, which target elementary age students, CSP tries to undertake all possible awareness approaches to ensure that our message is dispersed to all of Pohnpei’s population. Therefore, CSP came up with another environmental awareness program called “Community Outreach” that targets community members. This program goes out to communities and targets the young and old, and people in school and out of school.

The program basically talks about the three main eco-systems, the upland forest, the mangrove forest and the coral reef. It discusses the harm done and what we, communities can do to help minimize the harm. Videos and posters are presented to help the discussion and for communities to see and understand more of what the program is a

. There is also an open discussion between facilitators and community members as well as suggestions and comments. At the end of each outreach program a community is encouraged to come up with a project that will help compliment the discussions and lectures. The project will have to be something that will help improve our environmental surroundings. CSP provides equipments that will help carry out the project.
