Environment for Kids

Here’s a great site from Japan for kids that doesn’t talk down to them. It’s Kids “Create Your Future”, a site that both explains environmental problems and offers concrete ways for kids to positively impact the environment.

The following example onHow to have a car without owning it offers a very sophisticated way of framing the problem and embedding the solution, which could be public transportation:

We buy cars because we want to have the freedom to travel conveniently whenever we like. In other words, we want the service provided by the car, not the product itself. It’s important to understand the difference between the service of a product versus the product itself.

Umm, maybe we should try these arguments out on adults.
