Youth helping the environment – a way to get involved.

My daughter came home from school yesterday and announced that she “wanted to make a difference for the environment!  Otherwise, she might not be able to go exploring with her kids – like we do right now.”

So, we talked for a bit and began exploring the internet to help her come up with some ideas.  I found an interesting website, that might just help us get started on a project – and thought I should share it with Andy Camper friends.  http://www.youthactioncentre.ca/English/index.htm is a youth oriented site that is part of Green Street.  I did some more digging, and the site might be great to share with teachers who want to get classes involved in a fun and actionable way.  Lynne
