TRUTH OR DARE SCHOOL PROGRAM

 

EcoAction Partners works with schools and youth to engage local families, motivate actions, and build life-long sustainability habits. We developed an educational challenge for kids and families in our community to reduce their carbon footprints, save money, energy, and waste. 

 
 

HOW IT WORKS

An elective school program designed for 9-13 year olds, Truth or Dare challenges students to significantly reduced their carbon footprints and conserve resources. Over the course of a week, students earn points and win prizes for their sustainability actions such as carpooling or unplugging electric gadgets when not in use. Leadership students introduce Truth or Dare to their peers through skits to get them excited about the program, and many of the actions involve the whole family, so the educational reach is amplified throughout the community.
