The Great Plan
Our aim is to create a web page
which helps -above all- the communication among children in the topic of
environmentalism. We want to help them to find those little steps in every
day life which can contribute to the protection of our environment. We want
to create an interactive page that addresses and engages the interest of
more generations with its wide range of activities (competitions, outdoor
and indoor programs, lectures, games, contests, forum, chat etc.) and draws
their attention towards the environmentalism and sustainability. Our programme is open therefore we want to help green organizations and schools
to join us, and to share their experiences with those interested. This
project is run by students and children for students and children.
The essence of our programme:
Child with child and student with
student can much more easily understand each other. The upbringing of
children is the job of adults. But if we take a look at the irresponsible,
environmentally unfriendly adults who scatter rubbish everywhere, who were
children and had been brought up by adults then we realize that it is time
to give a chance to young people, even to small children.
The basis of environmentally
friendly behavior is to understand if I do something good, and you do
something good then we did something good together. Thus everyone is
responsible for events individually. "He who accepts the bad is
responsible if things get worse." It is a mistake to wait for someone
else; it is a mistake to wait for a major task. We have to act here and now
and the small parts will form a big result.
The most widespread and well-known
tool for communication is the internet; this should be used in education.
The main aim of the "Great Plan Programme" is to work out a really good educational system.
The motto of our program:
Earth, my future, I protect it!
It is important to get in touch
with foreign organizations in order to gain experiences, later they will
have the opportunity to adopt our program and the final aim would be a
movement which connects the whole world.
The future of the Earth is the future of
us, so our future is the future of the Earth, and it is time to take over the
responsible control over it.
Main problems to deal with:
The existing educational programs
with regards to environmentalism are not sufficient.
Children's initiatives are not
There is no efficient communication
between adults and children.
Those projects which try to mobilize
children are isolated
Solutions offered by our program:
A new educational system would be
worked out in order to make "Green Thinking and Lifestyle" part of every day
The program takes into account the
customs, expectations, and minds of the youth, unifies them into one major
"Green Movement" opposing the separated organizations of today.
Young people can affect the whole
society through their families, friends, and classmates the most
