Here's an "idea whose time has come!"
Together with over 70 students at University of Central Florida I've created "The Green Actioneers Workbook: The Definitive Family Guide to Going Green." It is the story of 4 families, one, with three adopted kids and two Moms from the inner city, one wealthy with two kids - Lakesha and Jamal - living in a big house in the suburbs, there's the Chen family, living on a mini-farm on the outskirts of town, and to close the book we have Awinita's Native American family living in a traditional community hidden in plain sight right in the town. All the kids are in the same classroom at Watson Elementary and in the course of the book they all take appropriate steps to "go green," saving energy, water and money and attaining sustainability for their town, for their state, for the country and the World.
The book outlines over 100 Actions families can take to go green and that means we already have over 100 episodes framed. It is a coloring book for the little kids, has relevant word games and puzzles for older kids, includes over 100 environmental quotes from famous people, and is in English and Spanish. It will be published in 2022 and within the decade of the '20s will be in every elementary and K-8 school in the US, Canada and many other countries.
Our book will be distributed like Scholastic Books, through "Green Actioneers Family Night" at schools and like Tupperware at "Green Actioneers Home Parties" for families homeschooling their kids. With our book and the video series (live action or cartoon) we will create the Green Actioneers Movement all around the World. You can get to me here or davefinnigan at . Let's do this! The World is waiting!
