Love Our Planet Love Our Kids Movement
On March 30th, the Earth Hour Day, I CAN TOO Foundation in collaboration with the Renewables 100 Policy Institute launches its latest global movement – Love Our Planet, Love Our Kids – focused on raising awareness for the impact of climate change on children’s health.
Our mission is to highlight the connection between environmental change and children’s health, and the urgency to address it.
As a foundation dedicated to helping children, I CAN TOO believes that bringing the attention on the impact that climate change has on health, is the first and major step on our way to make a difference.
We start our movement by organizing an event dedicated to the WWF initiative – The Earth Hour, which annually raises awareness for preserving Earth and working for a clean planet. EARTH HOUR VIDEO
On this day, millions of people around the world turn-off their lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30pm to show a commitment to protecting our planet.
Today, every action we take impacts the natural world around us. Our ever-growing demand for food, water and energy is changing the climate faster than predicted – and it comes at a cost to our children above all.
On March 30th, the Earth Hour Day, I CAN TOO joins efforts with supporters from different locations across the USA and Europe to spread the word about the influence of the environmental changes on children’s health.
We invite everyone to take part! You can join with your restaurant, club, café, office, or at home.
