“The best assembly we’ve ever had here”
– Principal, Santa Barbara Middle School
We believe that educating and empowering the next generation to be future environmental leaders is one of the most important things that we can be doing to address climate change. And leveraging the influence of our group of professional athletes to engage and inspire the students is a powerful way to do that.
Through our 45-minute multi-media Hot Planet/Cool Athletes in-school assembly, we focus on the athlete’s personal experience in the outdoors, and why they care so much, while providing an overview of climate science, examples of what’s happening, and how we can all make a difference.
Along with our partners The North Face and Clif Bar, we’ve reached over 60,000 students with this program since 2011. Designed as a turn-key assembly for both the athletes and the schools, it’s available free to any school interested in educating teens about climate change through an in-person, energizing, and informational climate assembly aimed at empowering students to address global climate change.
In order to want to protect the environment, young students should first understand how special our outdoors are, and what’s at stake.
“Thanks to POW’s Hot Planet Cool Athlete assembly, the culture of our school has positively changed for years to come. Students are noticeably more enthusiastic and eager to talk about climate change with their peers, and what they can do to help solve the problems it poses for their generation. Thank you, POW! We unconditionally recommend this assembly to other schools!”
