Cool Planet’s “Beyond TOLBY® – What’s Next?” is structured to give kids and youth (k-12) a powerful voice and the tools to make eco friendly changes in their schools, home and community. Beyond TOLBY builds off the TOLBY® (Turn Off Lights Behind You) program of the Center for Energy and Environment. Our program encourages energy conservation, and engages students, staff and families in a deeper discussion about finding solutions to their environmental concerns and re-imaging a sustainable future.
Our free program can be presented to classrooms, assemblies, parent teacher organizations and district wide audiences. Multiple visits encourage students to take the message home and report on follow-up actions. Flexible format works with your school community to meet educational standards, conserve energy and save money.
Cool Planet’s goal is to engage people in positive solutions to address our changing climate. JOIN US!! A smart energy future begins with our kids.
We are delighted to be working in Edina public schools for the 2013-14 school year and have participated at Cornelia Elementary, Creek Valley Elementary, South View Middle School, Valley View Middle School and Edina High School with support from a grant through the Hennepin County Green Partners program.
