Question by I Love My Kitties: How can I start an Environmental Awareness week (or day) at public schools?
Im wanting to go into pulblic schools and teach about environmental awareness because its something Im passionate about and would love to see be taught to the future generation.
How can I do this? What types of activities or things shoudl I have for elementary kids…middle school..high school…and maybe even colleges?
Im 20, so I want people to take me seriously because Im very passionate about our environment.
And I wont create stupid “fads” like one square per wipe. Im looking to provide recycling bins and such…conservation methods…etc.
I have seen An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore.
Im really liking everyone’s ideas. And I appreciate everyone’s support. I just feel the need to do more for others, and using my passion for the environment to help teach the people of the future generations is an inspiring thing for me.
More ideas are welcome and listened too! Its helping me a lot!
And to the girl who cant drive yet….you can still help out! Try organizing awareness at your own school by putting up posters, or talking to your principal about bringing in recycling or such.

Why bother? All “awareness” results in is a bunch of useless sloganeering at best and idiotic fads at worse. Like “one square of toilet tissue per poop”.
If you really want to put your passions to work you could tell your Congresshuman that you will run against them in the next election if they continue to accept donations from companies with operations in polluting countries like China and India and if they continue to sit on their hands while Indonesia and Brazil level the rain forests in favor of biofuel croplands.
