Sustainability & Equity
was founded in 2010 by Brad Gallant and is a 100% owned Indigenous company. Brad has over 20 years of experience with Utilities and Energy Conservation. He is also an activist working to end Indigenous Mascots and the racism they promote.
Brad has worked with utilities and their clients on the best approaches to reduce their energy usage. In 2013, he developed the Going Green to $ave Green Video Series. Beyond Green believes energy conservation can and should save you money. If you are going to go green, you should $ave Green.
Through the video series, Beyond Green can show you how. The video series enables teachers to create a culture of sustainability by providing turnkey video lessons to improve the energy efficiency literacy of their students.
The Going Green to $ave Green Video Series is a cloud-based educational resource designed to help teachers bring energy efficiency lessons to the k-12 science classroom. Beyond Green‘s focus is to help teachers educate students about energy efficiency. To do that, Beyond Green has developed turnkey video lessons that integrate energy efficiency literacy into classrooms.
The series teaches the MATH of energy conservation, which are steps required to execute an energy savings opportunity.
- Measure your energy use,
- Analyze where you are using too much energy,
- Target a project for energy reduction, and then
- Hone-In on new opportunities as they arise.
The Going Green to $ave Green Video Series aligns with the common-core science and sustainability curriculum. It provides teachers with dedicated 5-to-7-minute lessons that lead to great discussions and opportunities to continue learning through inquiry. Each video builds upon grade-appropriate skills in math and science to build energy efficiency literacy. It can give students the analytical skills to understand the financial consequences of their decisions.
An Indigenous Production Company
builds on Beyond Green’s video series experience.
As a first project, Beyond Green is submitting his documentary on Brad’s experiences fighting Indigenous Mascots at film festivals this year. Titled “Systemic Injustice”, the documentary explores the culture of Indigenous Racism that is perpetuated by mascots.
Cultural Racism is demonstrated by the unexpected and significant obstacles to Indigenous Mascot removal. Beyond Green believes that the continued presence of Indigenous mascots indicates that Canada is not the inclusive society we believe it to be!
