The Clayton County Public Schools Climate Justice Summit & Challenge: Green Heart Edition is the collaborative work of four partners who share a commitment to empowering young people to create a just and equitable climate positive future for all.


Clayton County Public Schools

Serving more than 52,000 students, Clayton County Public Schools is ranked among the 100 largest school districts in the U.S. and is the fifth-largest school system in Georgia. The CCPS Science and Social Science departments have come together to offer this Climate Justice Challenge & Summit as a means of bringing learning to life, and empowering students to become ChangeMakers for their community.


Captain Planet Foundation & Planeteer Alliance

Captain Planet Foundation (CPF) is an award-winning, US-based NGO that works collaboratively to engage and empower young people to be problem solvers for the planet. Over the past 31 years, more than 1.6 million children have directly participated in CPF’s programs, which have funded 3,250+ projects, impacting 10.5 million young people from over 90 nations. The NGO was originally based on the critically-acclaimed animated series Captain Planet and the Planeteers when it was co-founded in 1991 by media mogul Ted Turner and series executive producer Barbara Pyle. In 2002, CPF separated from TBS and became a 501(c)3 public charity. 

The Planeteer Alliance is CPF's direct-to-youth program that is building a global community of young people putting their impatience into action for the climate and planet.
