Ecosurveillance Group Protecting Our Water

Tic-Tac-G’eau, a new educational program, was recently launched by the ecosurveillance and education group protecting water, at Beauport Beausoleil elementary school.

More than 35 classes of 4, 5, and 6 graders from many regions in Quebec have already confirmed their intention to participate to counter the effects of global warming and green gas emissions.

In development since 1989 in Beauport, many programs encouraging people of all ages to increase their understanding of natural aquatic habitats and to actively participate in protecting them.

Notably, G3E obtained $82, 116 from the Quebec government for sustainable development in order to establish this program.

Three educational establishment classes in the Quebec region, totalling 66 registered kids.

Act now!

Setting up a mental alarm clock, Tic-Tac-G’eau will reach 900 students in the province. The organizers believe that by encouraging and pushing youth to act now and in a positive way daily, they will have the power to act all together for the planet. The program will help them adopt simple behaviours reducing green gas emissions (GGE).

These students can participate freely for 18 weeks during 2012-2013 school year, this pilot project aims to give an environmental conscience to kids for short and long-term.

These things involve mainly water and electricity savings in the classrooms, compost, and creating a story to demonstrate how they feel about the climate changes.

The official launch gave students the oportunity to benefit from a webcam meeting with Steve Plante, a research professor at Quebec University in Rimouski, who specializes in climate change.
