The Family Council is delighted to announce the launch of CREO Kids educational programme. The programme explores the effects of climate change by doing experiments, workshops with experts and interactions with social entrepreneurs in developing countries. At its first gathering, this promising network of younger family members explores STEAM, glaciology at the Glacier 3000 and innovative solutions to the transport and microplastics problems.

“Encouraging and providing the platform for the next generation to explore climate change solutions is an essential part of education. CREO Kids not only proved themselves up to the task but returned with concrete investment proposals for CO2 mitigation in the transport sector and microplastics reduction in the fast fashion sector. We look forward to continuing our support of the programme.”
Christina-Anne Kyosti, Chairwoman of ViaTalenta Foundation.

“CREO Kids is a great initiative that gets young people interested in our planet and the environment. It teaches them about the importance of protecting our resources and gives them an opportunity to be directly involved in preserving them. Our short research trip to the Glacier gave the kids the change to learn about glaciology, global warming and how it affects everybody’s daily life. It was a great honour and much fun for me and my team to be part of CREO Kids.”
Dr Roswitha Stolz, Senior Scientist and Academic Councillor at Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich.

“Indeed, a great initiative for the leaders of tomorrow the opportunity to Explore, Learn and Act about climate change. It gives them practical experience of challenges they will be facing in the future to preserve our planet’s natural resources and mitigate climate change. The energy, enthusiasm ad interest shown by these kids during our workshop on the Glacier 3000 was contagious. Thank you CREO Kids! There is hope for the future of our planet.”
Martin Horn, Founder and Director of the Young Explorers Club.
