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

Educate the kids! (And as by-product their parents) This is the most promising 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 involved.

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 one around your corner!  

One could set up a website adjusted to the needs of the kids and the syllabus and accompany the kids throughout the school year or school career. Kids like 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 and (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 get 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 e.g. would host the website? Is it necessary to set up a new (independent!) platform? 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.
