That is why we train them to ensure that the next generation is prepared to take care of this planet. Engaging children early creates a direct impact on their behaviours and attitudes, as well as that of their parents, relatives and families. By changing their outlook, they change their behaviour, and by extention, their homes, schools and communities.

They learn how to REFUSE, RETHINK, REUSE, RECYLE and RECOVER as they help to protect the earth. They learn how to think critically, and how to use data to inform solutions.
The Junior Ambassadeurs use citizens science to establish baseline and timeline data as they examine practical solutions to the questions:
