Our children inspire us to look at the built environment in the most innocent way. Our volunteers inspire our children to be good architects, while our children inspire our volunteers to become better architects.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We see a lot of environmental problems to be the result of current politics. We believe our future with be brighter when our children are more equipped with sustainable, collaborative and creative thinking. By teaching children about architecture, sustainable design, urban planning, and efficient use of materials, they will get into the habit of thinking in those terms. We hope to change the world through volunteering and education.

We volunteer to teach children about green buildings and green cities.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Started in September 2003

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We have been teaching at local schools in Hong Kong and New York for the last 14 years.

Education, architecture, future, sustainability, equity, access, ecology,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Many of our topics are related to problem in cities and buildings. We asked volunteers to suggest teaching syllabus to solve the problems. The children will then go through research, design and presentation phases to come up with their unique solutions.

CHALLENGE:
Children have tough time to focus on one subject for too long. We must keep our syllabus short and interesting so that they remain engaged on specific subjects. Our challenge is to balance fun and education.
