"The Ocean Touches You Everyday. With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you are connected to the ocean."
The idea for the Global Guardian Project was spurred on day while my friends and I watched our children play. We were having a discussion that we have often, about leaving the earth in a terrible state for our children and grandchildren. It always leaves me feeling desperate and ashamed. But this time, I let those feelings of shame turn into sparks of inspiration.
Global education is what fuels me. It’s what I base my professional and personal life around. When I look at my own children, I know that they are the true messengers, not me. So the Global Guardian Project took form.
In March of 2016, we'll be officially launching the Global Guardian project, a resource for global minded parents and children who want to learn more about the world, and what we can do to impact the future of the earth. This project is special because it's being taught to kids, by kids. By providing the resources, we hope to inspire children to motivate others. Our videos and interviews are all co-written by kids; the ideas and content are all theirs.
We are very excited to share the Global Guardian Project with you. In the meantime, you can sign up for our newsletter, a great resource for mindful parents and curious kids. You will receive exclusive samples of DIY educational projects, and tips on how to become a Global Guardian at home.
With global education being our mission, here are a few favorite products that help reinforce the importance of caring for our Earth.
