The mission of Hot Planet / Cool Athletes is to ensure the next generation is educated and energized to lead the fight against climate change.
In partnership with Protect Our Winters, Clif Bar and MEC, this program leverages the power of pro athletes to inspire the next generation to protect the places we love to play. This impactful multi media event provides a platform for athletes to share their experiences witnessing climate change first hand, while educating students with the latest climate science. Ending with an inspirational call to action and the opportunity for students to win a Powder Grant for their school to bring their best climate-fighting ideas to life.
Since launching at X Games in 2011, we've reached more than 30,000 students at over 72 schools in the U.S. and Canada. The Hot Planet Cool / Athletes assembly runs 45 minutes and is completely free to any school.
