My Green World is an Australian-based social enterprise dedicated to addressing global wildlife and environmental challenges through inclusive, youth-focused education…
The company was founded by Natalie Kyriacou, and its mission is to ‘inspire curiosity’ through a variety of learning programmes and games designed to empower young people and encourage greater youth participation in wildlife and environmental conservation and sciences.
In 2015, My Green World launched an educational mobile game app, World of the Wild, which encourages young people to participate in virtual conservation scenarios while supporting on-ground conservation efforts. Since then, the budding social enterprise has expanded its portfolio with an increasing emphasis on the power of celebrating individuality, inclusion and diversity. Kids’ Corner is the most recently launched addition to My Green World’s portfolio.
Kids’ Corner is an inclusive digital classroom, inspiring children and educators to participate in wildlife and environmental conservation and science through a range of digital learning programmes and activities.
The programme was created to respond to environmental crises by unlocking the potential of children as change agents, and ensuring that every young Australian has access to educational materials and support that they need to address the challenges that will define their generation. The educational programme prioritises diverse and inclusive learning and covers a wealth of topics, such as, climate change, ecosystems and biodiversity; natural selection and evolution; ocean and habitat; and a range of subjects that highlight important global issues. Kids’ Corner breaks down complex issues into easy, fun, positive and actionable concepts that can be used in any setting, as well as in homes, schools, libraries and hospitals.
