No Idling at Schools
This project will help you and your Action Team increase your understanding of issues relating to climate change. You will develop an anti-idling campaign at your school, creating posters and information handouts about the negative effects of idling and ask drivers to take the anti-idling pledge and be aware of your schools no idling zone!
• After learning about the negative effects of vehicle idling, students monitor traffic at their school to determine if idling is an important local issue.
• Students analyze their data and assuming idling is an issue, document their findings through movie shorts or a photography project in an effort to educate the school community and help bring about behavioural change.
• Once projects are ready to go, students organize a showing of their work and later try to determine the effectiveness of their message on their audience.
