BENEFITING: Rocking the Boat, Inc.

ORGANIZER: Jennifer

EVENT: Rocking Manhattan 2017

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017

Gillian Stewart

THE STORY:

It's been 5 years since I last rowed around Manhattan as part of Rocking Manhattan, and I think about it often. How many people can say they have circumnavigated the Island of Manhattan on a boat built by students? It was a transformative experience and one I look forward to repeating in 2017. Many people don't even realize it is possible to do this(!!!), and that's a problem.

New York City is made up of islands (Manhattan, Long Island, Staten Island), but many people ignore the waterways. In this time of rising sea level and increasing water temperatures, understanding and respecting the water is going to be vital for all future global citizens. Acknowledging the changing environment, and the human role in that change, is difficult to teach without getting people to interact with their natural surroundings.

As an oceanographer professor who grew up in NY, I believe that education about our waterways, the marine environment, and navigation are critical to the future of our city and the children in it. Further, the opportunity to physically build a boat requires useful skills and can generate confidence in students. This event allows them to see their final product in action.

Please help me help this organization and support kids from the South Bronx as they grow and respect the water around us!
