  • Do you want to be a part of a global media and education project benefiting Earth?
  • Do you want to invest in the future leaders of our planet?
  • Do you want to become the next generation of Eco Heroes?

If the answer is YES, then, join us on May the 5th, for the celebration of the “Day of the Eco Hero” with international TOP experts, for an exciting programme brought to you by environmental economist Pamela Peeters.

The webinar will start at 10:00am Eastern Time Zone (= 14.00 GTM) and will last an hour and a half.

Teachers and students will learn about the “Eco Hero Lab” project, will obtain hands-on science STEM from experts covering the four (ecosystems air/atmosphere, forest, water/oceans and soil) and see some short films. Some were made by kids who already took the “ECO HERO Challenge” and also showcase sustainable projects done by kids from the Bronx, Harlem and Manhattan.

New schools are invited to take the challenge and register for our 2020 competition out of which several kids will be selected to become “ECO HERO” reporters and become part of an international group of certified “Eco Heroes”. The competition will be further explained during the webinar.

More on the “ECO HERO Lab”

The “Eco Hero Lab” is both a school program and an online portal that inspires youth to become planet protectors. Kids are offered the science about our planet’s ecosystems through videos and are then invited to bring science to life at their own school through the 5 “Eco Hero Challenges”. The 5 challenges are:

  • Go meatless;
  • Reduce your waste;
  • Explore Wilderness;
  • Turn off the Lights and
  • Enhance your Well-being.

Introduction to Eco Hero course (trailer):

Why did TerraCottem get involved with the Eco Hero lab project?

Because it combines two topics that are dear to us: education and the environment. The Eco Hero Challenge is proof that this can be done in a fun and interactive way. The project is a great vehicle to share our knowledge on soil and soil improvement with the upcoming generation.
