Energy Saving Tips for students and families

Become more 'green' in your own little way -- reduce the juice! If everyone does their own part, we can lessen the energy demand, and help our environment.

And here are some helpful web resources:

  • (OF)2: Our Footprints, Our Future! 
    An international initiative that encourages youth (ages 19 and younger) from around the world to use online tools and resources to measure their carbon footprint and develop ways to reduce their carbon usage.
  • Walking the Talk
    The BC Sustainability Education Network (also known as walkingthetalk) is a social network for individuals, organizations and government to collaborate in order to move sustainability education forward in British Columbia.
  • Carbon footprint calculator
    Your carbon footprint is the sum of all emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which were induced by your activities in a given time frame. Usually a carbon footprint is calculated for the time period of a year. Kids, figure your carbon footprint out here!
  • Evergreen
    Evergreen is a not-for-profit organization that makes cities more livable. By deepening the connection between people and nature, and empowering Canadians to take a hands-on approach to their urban environments, Evergreen is improving the health of our cities - now and for the future.
