    • The ProblemCanada currently uses 70% of its total energy use from non-renewable resources. This use is notsustainable or environmentally responsible.According to Canada’s Action Plan on Climate Change, “The Government of Canada is committed to reducingCanadas total greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent from 2005 levels by 2020” (Government of Canada,2012).● This goal is achievable.● In order to meet this target Canadians need to aggressively implement change now and create programs for tomorrow.● We need to conserve our conventional energy resources while we continue to adopt and advance new ideas, alternative and renewable resources such as wind energy, solar energy, biomass, electric vehicles and other hybrid systems. Conservation is the critical component that will allow us to reach this goal!

    • The Solution To educate, engage, encourage and challenge children in the areas of conservation and the environment. ● ConserveCanada provides a free, fun and interactive energy conservation workshop to Canadian grade 5 science students. The ConserveCanada Workshop program is an Innovative, Unique and Measurable approach to educate Canada’s future decision makers to “Use and Manage Canada responsibly. Conservation immediately decreases our current greenhouse gas emissions. Conservation immediately decreases our demand for Canada’s fossil fuel resources. The introduction and advancement of new ideas, alternative and renewable energies allow us to offset fossil fuel electricity generation, further decreasing our emissions and further conserving our fossil fuel resources. Conservation allows us to reduce cost increases by reducing the need for new energy generation. We need to conserve our existing resources while we implement change!Home | The Problem | The Solution | Where We Are | Who we Are | The Workshop Program Captains of Industry | Kids Corner | Contact Us
    • THE WORKSHOP PROGRAMConserveCanada’s goal is to educate, engage, encourage and challenge children in the areas of conservation and theenvironment. Long-term, consistent messaging to a specific elementary school age group (grade 5 science students) will instillimportant understanding of our current and future energy needs. Guiding our children today will help our future decision makers oftomorrow make the right decisions to “Use and Manage Canada Responsibly”. This long-term plan will stimulate immediateconservation change and establish a program that will effectively change the future conservation landscape and help Canadaachieve its aggressive energy goals.ConserveCanada team members are invited into Canadian elementary classrooms as the “Teachers Aid”, providing a fun andinteractive learning experience. Team members focus on the importance of conservation, understanding the impacts caused byour current energy use, and the introduction of new ideas, alternative and renewable energies. No single alternative or renewableenergy technology is promoted. Instead, all alternative and renewable energy technologies are highlighted as part of our futureenergy mix and solution. Students are shown realistic ways to conserve and are encouraged to challenge others to do the same.ConserveCanada team members are recent engineering or teaching graduates with a passion for making a difference.The ConserveCanada Workshop Program is innovative in our direct market approach, targeted audience (grade 5 students), andin its ability to utilize an existing infrastructure (Canadian educational system). Teachers are supportive of the program approachand school boards encourage “Community Partners” as mentors. Teachers appreciate having the availability of additionalresources and support without the pressures of additional cost.

    • Who we areConserveCanada is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to spreading the conservation message through early educationworkshops with an emphasis on energy conservation. ConserveCanada team members provide free conservationworkshops to grade 5 science students in Canadian elementary schools. Funding for ConserveCanada is through publicand private sector sponsorship._______________________________________________________________________________________________________Board of Directors Tim Lang, realist and Carina Hernandez, James Lang, believer in conservation.
