Thinking and acting green involves learning about our local communities and environment. Once we learn more about the place in which we live, we are more likely to want to take care of it.
Join in on the fun under the dome during our Green Month, kicking off on Earth Day (April 22) and running until May 22. It'll be a month of celebration—programming that highlights the amazing green heroes from communities around BC, and the eco-action stories from Science World's BC Green Games teams. By joining in on events that take place at TELUS World of Science and trying out our take-home activities, you too can be a green hero!
