You can also find out what other kids around the world are doing to help protect the environment. Their stories are very inspirational and might give you some ideas of you own. Check it out!

May the green force be with you


If I were a teacher I would be very excited about this new online green education resource. The George Lucas Educational Foundation recently launched "Go Green Database" on The database features Green projects, lesson plans, service-learning opportunities and other resources that can be searched in many ways—by topic, grade level, cost and location. The database also allows users to add, rate and comment on or upload their own resources. Teachers, check it out!

Step it up 2007 – Who's a leader?

That's the question the thousands of people will be asking in cities and towns across the country on November 3rd. Step it Up Day was launched on April 14th as a citizen's movement to fight climate change. In all 50 states, at more than 1400 iconic places across the nation, americans called on their leaders to act immediately to stop global warming by boldly stating: "Step It Up Congress: Cut Carbon 80% by 2050."

On November 3rd the Green Guide for Kids will join with thousands of others across the country in calling on our politicians and candidates to take steps to meet the goal set on April 14th. We will gather at Grand Army Plaza and work together to create a banner that will ask politicians and candidates: Who Is A Leader? A photograph taken of all participants with the banner will be sent to Congress and candidates running for president one year to the date before the federal elections. Local and federal politicians will be invited to this event! I encourage you to invite them too...the more we pressure them, the better the chance that they will show up. So be a pest! To sign up and learn more about Step It Up 2007 click here.

If you do not live in the New York area but want to get involved, visit to find or start and action in your area. This is an important opportunity to tell candidates that the fight against global warming is important to us...especially if you are not old enough to tell them with your vote!
