Prof. Takaya Kawabe

The Kids' ISO 14000 Programme develops environmental awareness among children and young people. It teaches them to implement environmental management based on the ISO 14000 approach in their homes and communities. The program opens them to the value of networking with young people in other schools, communities and countries in order to bring the force of collective action to global environmental issues.
The Kids' ISO 14000 Programme begins by developing environmental awareness - but goes much further. What makes it special is that it nurtures autonomous, "environmentally mature" children and young people who are confident in their ability to act positively on the environment.
They learn by their own experience that their actions can have a beneficial impact on the environment. In addition, they learn to network with children in other schools, communities and countries and so discover that collective action can be a force multiplier for resolving global environmental issues.
