Captain Planet Foundation is an award-winning, US-based NGO that works collaboratively to engage and empower young people to be problem solvers for the planet. CPF was originally based on the critically-acclaimed animated series Captain Planet and the Planeteers when it was co-founded in 1991 by media mogul Ted Turner and series executive producer Barbara Pyle. In 2002, CPF separated from TBS and became a 501(c)3 public charity.
Over the past 31 years, more than 1.6 million children have directly participated in CPF’s programs, which have funded 3,250+ projects, impacting 10.5 million young people. CPF’s operating programs include: Project Learning Garden which has provided 530+ U.S. elementary schools with onsite learning laboratories and healthy food access; Project Hero which is a nationwide, web-based learning platform for K-12 students to save locally threatened and endangered species & ecosystems; and Planeteer Alliance, a global network of young people who are putting their passion and impatience for change into ACTION for the climate and planet.
