KidZania “Kids for a Greener World” program teaches kids to love Earth!

KidZania Singapore worked with its Green Partner, GardenasiaKids to kick off their inaugural “Kids for a Greener World” program to teach our future, how to love and take care of our Mother Earth.  From the 11th to 26th of June, KidZania Singapore held many activities where kids learnt how to better care their environment at a city built just for them.  The theme focuses on biodiversity and the City of KidZania isWeb bustling with new activities and programs to celebrate the splendour of the plant and animal kingdom in the world.  Pieced together with recycled materials contributed by various Industry Partners of KidZania Singapore, the giant “turtle hatchling” was also adorned with hand-written messages by 300 students of Nanyang Kindergarten and Faith Kindergarten on what they had learned in class about the impact of human action and pollution on sea turtles.

  1. Oh this is definitely a good addition to Kidzania! I love the little turtles made of recycled material. So cute! If only they could make it a permanent feature there, because I think it's important to teach kids about conservation.

  2. It's great to see more and more green initiatives and workshops geared towards teaching the young ones on conservation and recycling! *Thumbs up*

  3. What a great green initiative to teach our kids about recycling. We can all do our part to save Mother earth no matter how young we are.

  4. I like this green initiatives! I feel it's never too early to get them to know and learn about recycling. The turtle is a good idea for homelearning!

  5. So good to know that KidZania actually has this program to inculcate children with a love for nature. Love those little paper baby turtles!

  6. That's so cool that they managed to squeeze such green initiatives into their programme!
