In response to this post (i did not answer when posted)I agree to Paul, this
is one of the aims I have and don't think it is too difficult to reach.
There are tons of info kids oriented on the net and everywhere and it would
be the little effort of everyone to make a selection of what we all know and
like best, do a nice and interesting remix among all, and put it to work.
I'll do it in Spanish, either from Spanish fonts (not many really) or
Having it on line wouldn't be a big problem... hosting is easy (I can do it)
and we don't need to do the most fashion of the designs, unless there is
someone who wants to do it so!
I think it would be a really good idea to work on it... why don't we think
seriously about it??

Subject: [Coral-List] Education is the key!

Dear Members of this in the last weeks very interesting List,

Educate the kids! (And as by-product their parents) This is the most
and probably only solution available to change the mind frame. 

Important is that we "feed" the kids again and again (it's like advertising)

We should get the schools, the teachers and most importantly the kids

For a start; 

Let's put together a workshop (there might be already enough suitable 
educational material out there) and visit the schools.  I am sure there is
around your corner!  

One could set up a website adjusted to the needs of the kids and the
and accompany the kids throughout the school year or school career. Kids
competitions;    set out some prizes and let them compete for it in a quiz 
(within and between schools) 

Important is, that they have a contact / a face they can communicate with
(as a highlight) talk to them personally from time to time. 

We could search for a mascot (Nemo is probably already protected by some 
copyright law". Run a campaign where the kids (schools) have the option to 
choose between different mascots, come up with a name, let them paint . you
the point!   

This kind of effort would need some coordination and will therefore raise a 
range of issues. - What kind of administrative framework is required? Who
would host the website? Is it necessary to set up a new (independent!)
What is about the Kids that are not blessed with high speed internet access?

Sponsoring? etc.

I am sure you have some input and answers.
