"Lessons learnt outdoors, whether maths, science or language, often stay with us for life. Being outdoors helps children focus, boosts creativity and imagination, and can simply be more fun."

  • News​: World Disco Soup Day, April 29th, 2017

    "​Disco Soup started 5 years ago as Schnippeldisko in Berlin, Germany, a “protest soup” against food waste that fed 8000 people. Throughout the food system there’s an enormous amount of perfectly good food being wasted; whether it’s vegetables left to rot in the fields, food discarded by supermarkets or consumers not using what they buy. Disco Soup aims to raise awareness of this global problem by showing that all this “waste” is actually perfectly edible, even it requires a little effort.

    All you need to do is get in touch with farmers, wholesalers, markets, shops and supermarkets to see if they can donate some food instead of throwing it away. Then, with some tables, tools and at least one big pan you’ve got a Disco Soup going!"

"Our Mission: We create peace through youth leadership, community service, global friendships, and thoughtful acts of kindness.

Kids for Peace serves as a model and inspiration for creating this reality with children leading the way, not only for today, but for generations to come. Our Motto: Kindness Matters." 
"Children take a dynamic role in preserving and protecting our earth. We participate in conservation, stewardship, recycling and clean-ups. "
