In 2015 werd de GreenKidz Foundation opgericht met als doel ‘Changing the mindset of generations’. In de afgelopen jaren bereikten wij duizenden leerlingen en honderden leerkrachten met modern, meertalig milieu-onderwijs. De komende jaren richten wij ons op jongeren in de hele Dutch Caribbean met vernieuwend natuur- en milieuonderwijs en (digitale) leertrajecten.
