TOOLS FOR CHANGE – #1 – WELCOME TO THE ECOLOGY CENTER
Welcome to “Tools for Change” the first installment in a series of posts constructed by our friends at The Ecology Center, located in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
“Tools for Change” is The Ecology Center’s new interactive exhibition that explores the myriad instruments (literal and figurative) that can be used to achieve positive ecological change and a culture of sustainability at the household and community level.
This first edition takes you inside the Ecology Center and invites you to visit them on location. After this introduction “Tools for Change” will provide ways you can adapt into your life without having to visit the location. Let’s now take a look at the location and the exhibit:
Healthy Home, Sustainable Community
Tools For Change promotes healthy homes and a sustainable community by connecting people, products, ideas, and resources.
Tools For Kids
The Kids’ Zone is a play area and learning space for young people that encourages creativity, curiosity and ecological awareness. The space features a robust library of children’s books, videos, and other educational resources that celebrate sustainability and impart simple things kids can do to make a difference.
Pledge. Do. Share.
Tools For Change is a highly interactive experience that offers opportunities for anyone to make a difference, big or small. The exhibition challenges visitors to:
- Pledge to make simple, positive changes in daily tasks and choices
- Do what they promise by implementing or adopting their pledge
- Share their new skills and knowledge with friends and neighbors
Tools For Change is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 AM – 5 PM, and by reservation for school groups Monday through Friday.
