Environmental issues can be fun

When children learn about climate change and energy use early, they develop positive habits that will make a lifelong difference to the environment.

We partner with other agencies and performanace groups, like DreamRider Theatre, who help us to teach that environmental issues can be fun.

How we care for and nurture our children has important impacts on climate.
