You may only be one person, but you can impact society’s energy use and conservation. The first step is learning to appreciate the importance of energy and where it comes from.

We’ll teach you how to start small with simple changes and give you the tools to gradually grow into an Earth Ambassador!

In this project, you’ll:

  • Learn about different forms of energy
  • Develop an understanding of how specific types of energy impact the environment
  • Find practical and creative ways of using energy efficiently
  • Brainstorm ways you and your family can make a difference

By downloading any 4-H resource you agree not to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such resources (in whole or in part) for any purpose other than delivering the 4-H program. You also agree to give credit to the original creators. Your provincial or national 4-H organization may have restrictions on the types of 4-H projects or activities which can be completed in your area.
