MyZerokit Educational Programs* have been created by the owner of MyZerokit.com and of Mylittleartmuseum.com, Delphine Pilarski, Educator and Artistic Director holding a Climate Change Education Certificate by edX and a Sustainable Packaging in a Circular Economy Certificate by DeltX, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
“As a Mom, as an Educator, I believe that young people who are educated about sustainability are tomorrow’s zero waste adults.”
MyZeroKit PRESENTATIONS and GAMES ARE DESIGNED TO BE INTERACTIVE, AGE-APPROPRIATE, EDUCATIONAL AND FUN following the 5 steps for Effective Environmental Education
Learner–Oriented –Programs support the development of personal meaning through the learning process, with emphasis on age–appropriateness and ongoing (even life–long) learning
Promotes Wonder –Programs incorporate inquiry and discovery–based approaches that build appreciation for the natural and built environment
In Context of Place/Community –Programs place learning in the context of the local, relate directly to the learner’s life and culture, and encourage civic engagement
Action–Oriented –Programs incorporate approaches that are hands–on, address real problems, and build confidence and hope
Focus on Relationships –Programs forge connections across and outward from specific areas of study –integrate across issues such as water quality, energy production and economic development; cross disciplinary boundaries of academic subjects such as science and language arts; connect classroom and out–of–school learning; relate the local to the regional and global.

About Climate Change Theater Action: a branch of the art-driven environmental awareness movement.
Over the past couple of decades, it has become undeniable that climate change is happening, and is one of the most critical issues facing our planet. If bold actions aren’t taken to do something to reserve the current trends, scientists say that the long-term impact could be catastrophic.
While our current political leaders are largely ignorant of these issues, that’s not stopping the artists working on the Climate Change Theatre Action initiative from doing what they can to increase awareness of what’s happening to our environment.
Climate Change Theatre Action (CCTA) started out in 2015 as a collaboration between NoPassport Theatre Alliance, The Arctic Cycle and Theatre Without Borders, and in 2017 expanded to include the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts and York University. Many of the organizers and collaborators involved are talented playwrights, actors and directors who have dedicated their work to these issues.
It is a series of 50 short plays focused around climate change – written by various playwrights all across the globe – with readings and performances scheduled to take throughout October and November. During that time, this worldwide series will be taking place in theatres, high schools, universities, eco-centers, community centers, on radio, and outdoors, with the overall goal raising awareness of the UN Conference of the Parties on climate change.
All across America and the rest of the world, there are many CCTA-related events going on. Not only are they occurring in New York, but also in other cities in America such as Los Angeles, Denver, Boston and Chicago, along with events in several other countries such as Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Mexico, Japan, and many more.
Let’s do it in your School, your Community Center…
I’m grateful that I received access to the 50 plays by the CCTA.
