OLLIE SAVES THE PLANET - BACKGROUND

Ollie and kids at Australian launchOllie Saves the Planet is an industry led interactive environmental education initiative that introduces the concept of sustainability and asks users to reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink their actions in the areas of waste, water, energy, air and biodiversity. It does this within the context of local conditions and the local school educational guidelines.

Educationalists, industry representatives and experts in multimedia have developed the Ollie Program utilizing the latest in multimedia technology to create a learning tool for children between the ages of 5 – 13 years that is exciting, challenging and up-to-date with environmental information.

Ollie Saves the Planet CD-ROM coverThe Office of the Federal Environmental Executive, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) the National Recycling Coalition (NRC), the Water Education Foundation, CHEP, V-COM and the US Postal Service are all proud sponsors of this new program.

The Ollie Saves the Planet Program has many hours of activities, information and challenges delivered through an animated multimedia format. It has been written using the North American Association of Environmental Education Best Practice Resource Guidelines so that it can be used in the classroom or home environment.

To this end they are carrying out “Train the Trainer” and “Train the Teacher” workshops to show educators the best way to use the Ollie Program in their classrooms.
