Family Eco Challenge

Posted on

True to the intention of Earth Hour, where participants are not only encouraged to celebrate during the actual hour, but also to "Go Beyond The Hour", Monday we launched the month-long Family Eco Challenge at Brent Kennedy. After first discussing how people spent this year’s Earth Hour (lots of candles, family time, games, music and ghost stories), we looked at our ecological handprints, the actions we do (or are willing to try to do) to shrink our ecofootprints, and lighten our impact on the earth. The students were left with the assignment to spend the first week of the challenge investigating their families’ ecofootprints.
