Kids Save Ocean

  • 1 person is interested

Kid Save Ocean’s core mission is to give children everywhere a voice about our planet's environment.

From humble beginnings: scrappy 12-year-olds built a giant trash whale sculpture to bring attention to plastic ocean pollution, Kids Save Ocean has grown to include the world’s first Children’s Clean Ocean Summit at the UN, and the recently release on iOS of our Fatechanger mobile app, an edgy surfer-spirit-imbued platform.

Packed with learning and teaching resources about climate change, plastic ocean pollution and sustainability, the FateChanger App gives youth a voice 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.

Now a California-based non-profit, Kids Save Ocean's ultimate goal is to give kids a real voice in the world via formal inclusion in the United Nations, a feat the opinion-sampling power of Fatechanger’s growing network will make possible.

But we can't do it alone. We really need help.

About Kids Save Ocean

Location:

Heissgasse, Vienna, Vienna 1230, AT

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.
