The Climate Academy
New Jersey

The Climate Academy team took on the challenge of educating New Jersey about storm drain pollution and its effects on ocean health and marine life. By creating an awareness campaign, this team called on Clean Ocean Action, the Jersey City Municipal Utilites Authority and the mayor of Jersey City to implement their plan of stenciling signs on storm drains: "Dump No Waste" "Drains to Waterways." The team spread their message far and wide by creating learning kits, which they distributed to thirty-five schools across Jersey City. This team took change into their own hands!
