Program Suggestions

From Climate Change Challenge Badge

(As listed in the Climate Change Challenge - Scout Handbook Pages

  1. After exploring ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home, educate others as to how they may improve their own homes (e.g. information booth; pamphlet, etc.). Provide estimates of the energy, money and GHGs saved by using an online calculator (www.climatechange.gc.ca or www.scouts.ca).
  2. Adopt a location in the community where cars are often seen idling (school yard, sports facility) and launch a noidling campaign to decrease idling in this location. Resources can be found at: http://oee.nrcan.gc.ca/transportation/personal/idling.cfm
  3. Organize a tire pressure clinic. Visit www.betiresmart.ca to find out more about this program.
