Youth Planeteer Clubs
In the cartoon, there are five Planeteer characters from five different continents, and they represent the five basic elements of life: Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Heart. They each wear a power ring that can summon the help of their element when it is needed.
Like you, the Planeteers see examples everywhere of people not conserving (or using resources wisely). People being wasteful and not recycling. People generally not treating the planet and its inhabitants with the respect they deserve.
As a Youth Planeteer Club, you will create a series of ‘Take Action Campaigns’ in your school such as:
Heart Planeteer of the Week in classrooms
Earth Planeteer Recycling Program
Fire Planeteer Energy Conservation Program
Water Planeteer Water Conservation Program
Wind Planeteer Clean Air School Program
Global Planeteer Movement
Captain Planet and the Planeteers armed an entire generation with an environmental vocabulary and the power to change the Earth’s future. Inspired by the messages of the series, the now adult Planeteers around the world are now working together in tandem to create a sustainable future.
The Planeteer Movement presents an opportunity for Planeteers to connect and share their ideas, projects, and success stories with Planeteers around the world. The Planet Blog is an open-source project; anyone is welcome to create an account and post. Planeteer Profiles provide a glimpse of the amazing people who continue to be inspired by the series and work to make this Movement a success. And the globe-spanning Planeteer Networks are the live working groups in which Planeteers can meet, plan events, and create positive change in their communities
