educating the kids to help change their future

The generation carbon or Genc podcast is a refreshing new approach to ask kids to educate their parents and adults around them to make the change we need to have a reverse effect of climate change.

Leslieloula ,

Fun and educational

My kids and I are really enjoying this series! I love the information that’s presented in a fun way, and that it’s not too long-the perfect amount of time. We really liked the episode about birds and climate change and learning about hummingbirds.

Angie Murillo ,

A more conscious generation ahead!

Love that these episodes are educational, entertaining, and still has a boost of cuteness for kids of all ages to enjoy while learning! Not only a great idea to learn on their own, but also a fantastic tool to use in elementary science classrooms, too! Definitely will be recommending to my children’s teachers.
