We created this initiative to start discussions between people of all ages about climate change, sustainability and green technology. We are at an important point in this discussion. We can do this together-finding solutions, creating new jobs for young and old, protecting ourselves as well as nature. Join us in this discussion at home, in school, at work, with our governments!

Description: In this camp, students will learn about being sustainable, green product design, learn about biomimicry-that is, learning from plants and animals when designing products, consider how to connect schools/learning spaces to nature, and participate in a virtual circular design challenge with their peers.
