We're currently finishing FateChanger, a mobile app to empower both students and teachers across the world to tackle plastic ocean pollution, climate change and sustainability by learning about the issues then lobbying governments to revolutionize their approaches to the problems.. The app is being created for iOS and android with help from amazing volunteer developers from across the world.

​The app is built for teachers and students, but also invites the wider global community to act now. Packed with resources, FateChanger empowers youth to transform environmental policy.

  1. Our National letter-writing campaigns help youth demand change.

  2. The app's Policy Toolkit helps kids impact local government.

  3. Our Hijack Citizen Ballot initiatives enable youth to push for new laws.

  4. As FateChanger grows, we'll be able to statistically sample youth opinions, and intend to gain youth a formal voting seat in the United Nations. And we've done our homework.

It also includes teaching resources linking Covid-19 funding and climate change.

We just incorporated changes from Beta testing into our iOS version, which is soon to be released. We need a very experienced developer to finish the android version. If this is you, come join us. Or if you perhaps know somebody, please forward this posting.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Mission Statement

Our core mission is to give children everywhere a voice about our planet's environment, a mission we currently approach through our mobile app development, our work with the United Nations, and our exhibitions. Integral to that mission is providing teachers with a platform to deeply engage their students about plastic ocean pollution, climate change and the critically related issue of sustainability. Why? Children deserve a voice in this world. And empowering them with one may just be the help we obviously so desperately need. ​

Description

Kids Save Ocean began in 2016 when teacher Peder Hill helped 12-year-olds build a 15-foot whale from trash to bring attention to ocean plastic pollution. Dissatisfied by their inability to have any impact, his efforts expanded to face-painting, exhibitions, the Children’s Clean Ocean Summit at the UN, and the Fatechanger mobile app. Along the way a global network of volunteers joined him, all drawn to the same simple powerful idea: give kids a voice.

​The Urgent Need for Sustainability

Education is key to enabling us to transform our world into a sustainable one. Sustainability, however, remains unintegrated into curricula across the globe. Teachers everywhere, students everywhere, need powerful tools today to understand and develop a sustainable world for tomorrow. The future depends on us. There’s no time left to tiptoe.

A Unique Model - Learning Tools with Teeth

Kids Save Ocean’s Fatechanger app and its innovative teaching and learning resources will help fill both these critical voids, creating a platform focused on the visual and visceral issue of ocean plastic pollution (a topic directly connected to sustainability) to deeply engage kids and give them a global voice to impact these challenges - initially through facilitating and tracking a global letter-writing campaign, then through including them informally and eventually formally in the United Nations.

Volunteers power Kids Save Ocean. Please join us.
