Captain Planet and the Planeteers was an animated series that ran from 1990 to 1992. In the show five young people are selected from around the world and given power rings to aid them in their quest to save the planet. In the worst situations, they could combine their power to call on the elemental superhero, Captain Planet.
“The Power is Yours!”
These immortal words of our superhero, impacted thousands of people around the world, showing viewers that they each had the power within themselves to make a difference in the world. Many people are now joining efforts in a worldwide Planeteer Movement through the creation of Planeteer networks.
Although our network originates in Kent, OH, our goal is to expand so that we can serve and educate Akron and the surrounding areas. If you’re from this area, and want to get involved, email AkronPlaneteers@live.com, join our Facebook group Akron, OH Planeteers or “like” our Kent State Planeteers Page. With our blog, Twitter, and Facebook, there are lots of ways to stay informed with what’s going on. You can also check out the Planeteer Movement website to find out about networks in other locations, or find information about starting your own.
