BCSEA is proud to announce it will be extending its in-school educational program, Cool It!, to the communities of British Columbia with Cool It! In Your Community, sponsored by Vancity.
Cool It! in your Community invites families with children to take part in a free educational workshop in which they will learn what actions can be taken as a family to reduce their GHG emissions. These actions start small, but when compounded, can have a huge effect on a family unit’s carbon footprint.
Designed to be engaging for both parents and children, and highlighting particular actions for each, the 90 minute workshop will educate and inspire families to the actions they can take to reduce their GHG emissions, and help combat the effects of climate change. After the workshop, parents will take home a 30 day challenge, allowing the entire family to take the lessons learnt and apply them to day to day life. To cap it all off, all children will receive a goody bag filled with passes to local attractions (like Science World) and other great prizes. Families have the chance to win the prize basket, which includes a Home Energy Audit ($400 value) courtesy of City Green Solutions, a Home Centre gift card and energy saving solutions.
This is an amazing opportunity to learn, as a family, lifelong lessons that will have an effect on the lives of children across BC.
