Kids see what adults don't notice, they ask the right questions and find interesting and unexpected answers.
Let's hear what they have to say.
The aim of the project is to solicit from kids and implement some ideas that would make life better in a particular locale, city, neighbourhood, community or village. It is tiny local changes that help to gradually change the entire world for the better.
