Program Details


In this 40-60 minute program, we will explore the innovation and ingenuity of individuals across the planet who are designing ways to support ecosystems and communities.

Students will build and reflect upon their own ideas about one of the biggest impacts on Earth’s ecosystems: feeding all humans.

Throughout the program, students will be challenged to design simple, personal solutions for minimizing those impacts while meeting the needs of humans, plants, and other animals on our planet. By the end of the program, they will create their own Planet Hero Action Plan!

Specific challenges that students may design solutions for involve changing food choices and reducing food waste. For example, did you know that the #1 thing that clogs landfills in the US is wasted food? Or, that it takes a half-of-a-football-field worth of space to feed just one person in the US? When you add all of those needs up, it’s easy to see why there is less space for important ecosystems that provide clean air, water filtration, and space for more living things.


By the end of this program, students will:
- explore ways our food choices affect planet Earth.
- learn how to make a plan of action
- develop an action plan around their food choices
