You protect them from everything, protect their environment…
As part of their outreach initiatives, the Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute is promoting an energy and water conservation campaign to the community mothers and grandmothers.
The goal of the campaign is to promote gender equality and participation in efficient energy utilization, water conservation, and solid waste reduction. Demographic studies, even though hard to generalize in all city census tracts, do indicate that female-headed households are among many of the tracts that consume fewer resources.
Mothers are a major factor in resource conservation due to their role and hours spent at the home. More so, mothers play a very critical role in educating their children. Children’s education starts from pre-school age before the children have a chance to be exposed to sustainability education in K-12 grade curriculums.
A targeted campaign to promote change by empowering women’s confidence and participation in sustainable living.
“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” – Sophia Loren
