The Kids Ecology Corps is Kid Power!
You Can Change the World!
Do you know that you can change the world? The Kids Ecology Corps is about your using what we call Kid Power to make change.
- If you want to make changes, you have to start by making a commitment. Making a commitment means sticking to something until it is done. It also means that you have made a decision. If you make good decisions, the changes you make will be good changes.
- If you want to change something that is too big for you to change by yourself, you have to work with other people.
- Working with a group of like-minded people towards a common goal is called a critical mass. Working together it is easier to make big changes. Sometimes these changes can change the whole world!
- What happens if you and your friends and a lot of other people believe the same thing? What happens when everyone who believes the same thing works together? They become what is called a critical mass. They can put lots of energy into making a change. When they make a commitment to work together, they can make big changes. Sometimes the changes are so big that the global community changes.
We call the whole world the global community. The global community is you, your family and friends, your community, your state, the United States, and all the people and nations of the earth.
