Planet Earth is an incredibly unique place in our solar system. For one, it is the only planet that supports a diverse system of life! Earth has been able to support and take care of both plants and animals, including humans. So, how do we humans take care of Earth just like it takes care of us?

In this interactive program, students around the world took on the role of Planet Heroes as they were challenged to design and implement solutions that will benefit wildlife, ecosystems, and global communities.
