Our Partner

Kids Save Ocean is an environmental nonprofit aiming to empower children to have their voices heard in the discussion about the planet's environment. Kids Save Ocean started out by creating an art exhibition to raise awareness and organizing the first United Nations Children’s Clean Ocean Summit, and is now currently piloting its first app, FateChanger, which empowers students and teachers by educating them about sustainability solutions and providing resources to enact policy change in their communities.

Problem

While there’s a lot of enthusiasm and energy among the global youth to better the planet and environment, there aren’t many established ways for kids to make a long-lasting impact in their communities. Sustainability is a difficult concept to gain a holistic understanding of, especially without much prior education and experience. Effective solutions require cross-disciplinary knowledge and involve systems thinking and project management skills, and there aren’t many kid-friendly platforms that consolidate the information and skills needed to create tangible sustainability-driven change.

Solution

In our partnership with Kids Save Ocean, we’ve built FateMaker, a platform intended to educate and inspire kids to design and execute on sustainability-driven projects and solutions. FateMaker coaches its users through the Human-Centered Design process as they create their projects, and also provides a platform where users can browse through projects and follow other users/projects to gain inspiration and insight into how they could improve their own communities.

Main Features

Project View

The various phases and steps comprising each project can be easily viewed using a Gantt chart, allowing users to more easily understand the temporal nature and structure of a project.
