Cool It! In Your Community is a series of fun and interactive workshops bringing together families who are interested in taking action in their home to decrease their carbon footprint, and building greater connections in the community. Families are encouraged and supported in making easy but important changes in their energy consumption, resulting in tangible and measured greenhouse gas reductions. Participants attend a 90 minute workshop hosted by one of our Cool It! Educators who will engage families through the use of video, games, and discussions to build on personal knowledge of climate change and explore with families how they can actively participate in reducing their carbon emissions. After the workshop, families will participate in a month long take-home challenge for a chance to win the prize basket, which includes a home energy audit ($375+ value) courtesy of City Green Solutions, a home centre gift card and energy saving solutions.
Workshops are intended for one parent or caregiver and school-aged children. Each child that attends will receive a Cool It! Climate Change Leader gift bag full of passes to local attractions and other great prizes.
