Finally, a Climate Change Programme for Elementary School Kids

Launched in 2008, Project Ecokids stands for environmentally-conscious kids and is the pet-project of the Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC). While climate change lessons are not yet fully integrated into the public school curriculum, HSBC teamed up with WWF to design and implement an education drive to teach children about climate change and the simple solutions they can adopt to prepare for its effects.

“We believe in empowering the youth to become future stewards for the environment. One good way is to make them realize that climate change is not some complex concept for grown-ups. Rather, it’s something they can understand, something they themselves can act on,” explains Project EcoKids team leader Obel Resurreccion.
