Spare Our Planet

Time to Step it Up!

The Spare Our Planet Program is a student created and led contest designed to increase awareness of climate change and promote the use of biking, walking, public transportation, and carpooling, and reduce their community’s carbon impact.

The Spare Our Planet initiative is a student created and lead sustainable living practice contest designed to increase awareness of climate change and promote the use of biking, walking, public transportation, and carpooling, and reduce your school community’s environmental impact. 

Our objective is to promote personal behavior alternatives to carbon-intense consumption and lifestyle habits, to provide young people a voice, and empower them to play a significant role in developing climate change solutions. 

Beyond reduction of CO2 emissions that will accrue as a result of the enactment of this initiative, we will achieve co-benefits such as:

  • Student-to-home education that encourages action at home or in the community;
  • Reduction in school-related vehicle travel (field trips, sports “away” games, etc.);
  • Incentives for young people to walk, ride bikes, take public transportation, carpool, to school instead of driving or being driven;
  • Innovative peer-to-peer education.
