Low Carbon and Delicious - the cookbook
As a part of the 10:10 campaign, in 2011 we launched the 10:10 Teen Project, which aimed at creating a new way for young people to interact, express themselves and be creative, all with the joint goal of reducing carbon emissions. Although the project targeted teenagers, it was equally open to anyone who wanted to join. Participants were challenged with simple, yet educational bi-weekly tasks related to carbon reduction. You can check some of the responses we got here: http://teen.1010global.org/.

Launched in December 2009, the Ever Green continued throughout 2010 and 2011. Focused on baseline education on climate change, recycling, renewable energies and reducing carbon footprint, our Ever Green campaign targeted primarily children and youth, but also the rest of the public.
The campaign provided extracurricular programmes and projects for elementary schools as well as for kindergartens. Activities included workshops and other similar educational activities where children could learn about all the above mentioned topics through interactive games, peer-to-peer education, creative expression and practical work.
