NHK: Kids' ISO 14000

NHK World Network did a wonderful radio program about childrens' efforts regarding ISO 14000, the environmental certification program. Lena Lindahl reports about how kids can participate. Visiting Professor Takaya Kawabe at the United Nations University in Tokyo explains how to make children aware of household energy and water consumption, and how to reduce it.

"This is a way of environmental management", he explains. All family members can participate, a good way to bring home the environmental message. 120,000 families have participated in the project since 2000. As a result, 40,000 tonnes of CO2 are said to have been reduced! Schools in Australia and South Korea are also using this project, and from this year, New York City will implement this project in some schools as well.

Listen to the program here, by clicking on "Tuesday".
