We've invented a cool kind of money called the Boya

A Boya is created by our schools and community groups whenever we work together to reduce greenhouse pollution in the atmosphere.

Our programme is simple:

1.Our school or community decides to reduce climate pollution by a certain number of tonnes.

2. We work together to collect data and estimate the pollution reductions we have achieved.

3. We use an Upside-down thermometer to track our progress based on how much we have reduced the Earth's temperature.

4. Kids and adults share their story of climate leadership by printing it on Boya.

When we trade Boya, or accept them at our businesses, we are supporting each other in creating a better future for all of us.

As Boya move around from person to person they carry the story of positive community action that will further inspire ourselves and others.

Together we can:

Share our stories about the good news that often goes unmentioned as we work together to create a better tomorrow.

Set our own value for greenhouse pollution reductions created by our communities TODAY.

Thank schools and families for reducing pollution by exchanging their Boya for discounts at our businesses.

'Make' money and save money at the same time.

Come join the fun making a safe and sustainable future for our kids.
