The iEARN 25th Anniversary Cake Week Celebration is underway, and we’re aiming to create the world’s largest global classroom sugar high while we recognize the efforts of students and teachers around the globe to improve the quality of life on the planet.
Stayed tuned all week for special announcements, like today’s Earth Day Zerofootprint Youth Calculator Phase 2 Launch:
Today’s youth are taking the future into their own hands in over 100 countries through the Zerofootprint Youth Calculator initiative that engages them in a worldwide network to measure, compare and change their behavior. As both a carbon calculator and social engagement platform, the Zerofootprint Youth Calculator connects young people to one another around the world to mitigate their collective carbon footprint. Already during Phase 1, over 230,000 active users have committed to a reduction of 150,000 tons of CO2 released into Earth’s atmosphere and our Oceans.
On Earth Day, the Zerofootprint Youth Calculator has launched a new platform in English, French, Spanish, Hebrew and Arabic. Through a partnership with iEARN (International Education and Resource Network), Phase 2 hopes to scale up to 1,000,000 active users and achieve a reduction of 600,000 tons of CO2 by Earth Day 2014.
