905 Green Team’s goal is to educate Markham’s younger generations about climate change and the importance environmental impacts of energy consumption, as well as support Markham to meet their goal of net zero emissions by 2050.
Through the design of a children’s book, 905 Green Team hope to engage and educate kids about energy and what they can do in their everyday lives to help. Parents are engaged through a concluding summary for adults filled with action items they can pursue to lessen their energy consumption as a household.
By inspiring curiosity and energy consciousness at a young age, 905 Green Team hope to spark conversation and change within the whole family. Working with the Markham Sustainability Department and Markham Public Libraries, they are distributing hardcopies and e-books to ensure that their work can be accessible to all Markham residents.
