My World My Choice
To promote My World My Choice Sustainability Program throughout classrooms; an educational program to teach students about sustainability and challenge them to grow as leaders in their schools & communities
Each city’s run of the program has reached several hundred students in multiple schools and inspired them to create projects to reduce their school’s footprint such as:
paper and waste management
improved use of their school facility
real cafeteria lunches
In addition to the students, each project has trained twenty to thirty mentors. Enthusiastic young professionals and post-secondary students – many of whom hadn’t had any knowledge of sustainability – learned all about sustainability and grew just as much, if not more, than the students themselves.
