Care For Our Earth
Care for Our Earth program provides opportunities for youth to work together to address – and solve – some of our regions’ most pressing environmental issues. Tapping into our youth’s innovative thinking and “can do” attitudes, students will put the third line of our Peace Pledge – I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands – into action.
I. Idle-Free Schools Campaign
We are inviting 20 San Diego County schools to implement a campaign called, “Turn Your Key – Be Idle Free” for the 2022-2023 school year. This unifying campaign will bring awareness to the harmful toxins released as cars idle during student pick-up at schools and beyond.
Check out the 5 steps to implementing this at your school.
Kids for Peace will assist all participating schools every step of the way – offering, guidance, tools and resources to make the campaign as simple to implement and as impactful as possible!
II. Environmental Projects
Youth from all schools and Kids for Peace chapters are invited to create, implement and promote environmental projects that are personally meaningful and geographically relevant.
Ask your kids what their earth-conscious passions are:
- Single-Use Plastic Awareness?
- Storm Drain Stenciling?
- Beach/Trail Cleanups?
Whatever they decide will help guide multiple earth-friendly projects throughout the year.
