The Into the Outdoors Broadcast Television Network now impacts 124 channels nationally via ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and PBS affiliates reaching 730,000 viewers each week. This educational television series is the only program to earn 17 Emmys from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for the top youth educational series in the Midwest. Your energy-education content is aired a minimum of six times over two years and impacts over 4,380,000 viewers, half under 18 years old.
Today, more than ever, people are realizing that our dependency on fossil fuels continues to deteriorate the health of Planet Earth.
And the science is simple to decode.
For the past half million years, atmospheric carbon dioxide has stayed below 280 parts per million (ppm). But in just the past 200 years, we’ve burned millions of years worth of the sequestered carbon extracted from the Earth in the form of coal and hydrocarbons. And today our atmosphere has now climbed to 418 ppm of CO2… and this major source of climate change continues to increase.
Yes, our quest for energy has in fact altered the future of all living things on the Blue Planet.
The reality of clean and practical renewable energy is far from reaching its full potential and making a significant difference in our collective future. Today, renewable energy only produces about 10% of Wisconsin’s power and about 20% across the country.
So it begs the critical questions; What vital steps will it take to move Wisconsin to 100% clean energy? And, where do we start to empower Wisconsin communities, leading businesses, and our citizens to move all of us toward this clean energy goal?
The two vital steps in changing our renewable energy future begin with; 1) Educating the public and our next generation to think critically about renewable energy, 2) Giving them realistic solutions and pathways to connect with today’s renewable energy opportunities so they can become active stakeholders in helping achieve a clean energy future.
That’s why RENEW Wisconsin and Into the Outdoors Education Network have partnered to launch the Renewable Energy Education Initiative. This program achieves those two vital steps by impacting millions of students in distance learning and classrooms, plus adults in households across Wisconsin, the Midwest, and the country with Emmy-winning television and renewable energy education that empowers them to shape the future of our planet.
But hold on. There’s one final part missing from this renewable energy education program… that’s you joining us and your peers as one of the crucial “content partners” and being able to have your face, voice and SME’s telling your renewable energy story to millions.
