eCards

Introduction

eCards is a tool for students in grades 7-12. eCards empowers youth to act for the climate by learning about environmental issues, creating informed messages, and acting on them.

By sending an eCard to a decision maker, learners express what they have learned through their research and what matters most to them. Through art and writing, eCards supports environmental education and advocates for people to take meaningful, collective action.
