Who we are
We are a group of local high schoolers from Montgomery County, Maryland who were inspired by the effects of climate change around us to jumpstart the education and awareness of climate change among children.
We steadfastly believe that children are our future and an early awareness paired with an engaging education on climate change can foster a greener lifestyle with healthy habits. Remembering our own elementary years, we can attribute many facets of our current selves to what was taught in the educational cartoons we watched and the games we played in school. Their lasting influence has cemented in us an understanding of their value and the potential they have to change lives for good.
